Our search for the best country pubs on autumn walks has centred on the Seven Sisters and I wanted to try the pub named after one of the area's most famous landmarks.

The Beachy Head is a sister pub to the likes of The Cuckmere Inn, nearby, and The Smuggler's Rest at Peacehaven.

And The Beachy Head is excellent. The views are stunning and the service is very good even on a busy day. There was a log fire burning so it was the ideal stop off after having a stroll and enjoying those breathtaking views near the lighthouse and out towards France. The views across the coast in both directions and particularly down towards Eastbourne are stunning.

And after our lunch we had a lovely time in the museum next door, which really added to the experience.

The Beachy Head Story exhibition has a collection of artefacts and a huge window and binoculars to look out across the South Downs .

Take a look at the skeleton and reconstruction of what Beachy Head Woman looked like.

The Argus: Beachy Head Woman

Her remains were discovered at Beachy Head and date from the first half of the Roman occupation of Britain. She was from the Mediterranean but was buried here and may have had children. So in some small way some of us could in some way be related.

I loved seeing Lewis Carroll's bed desk, made locally and used for breakfast in bed and reading The Argus (or other papers). The author of Alice in Wonderland was a frequent visitor to Eastbourne for summer holidays. he walked top Beachy Head every afternoon, and rest with tea and rock cakes. There is so much to see and do at The Beachy head Story.

That was ideal after a pretty hearty steak sandwich. Not rammed full of beef but good. The fish finger sandwich was solid too, both coming with chunky chips for around a tenner.

The chicken schnitzel at £16.95 was pretty tasty with crispy bacon and melted cheddar.

The food was all perfectly tasty pub fare, including a delicious sticky toffee pudding at £7.25. With drinks it was a good lunch and this pub has an amazing view through huge windows, just like the museum next door.

A lovely trip out with good food, a great walk and that museum surprise.
