About The Pilgrims Rest

1 High Street, Battle
East Sussex, TN33 0AE

The Pilgrims Rest is an East Sussex wedding venue full of rustic charm - perfect for exclusive use weddings and receptions all year round.

Licensed for wedding and civil ceremonies,  The Pilgrims Rest is a wedding venue that gives 
you the flexibility to create your wedding day just how you want it.  Whether you choose to have a DIY wedding, a fully caterered wedding or anything in-between our wedding coordinator will be there on the day to hold your hand and ensure your wedding runs seamlessly.  

We have designed and furnished the building so that it needs little decoration but one that you can make your own. With no corkage charges and no hidden extras, The Pilgrims Rest is a wedding venue that is beautiful yet affordable; stunning yet relaxed.

The Pilgrims Rest is however more than just a beautiful old building. Having opened her doors to visitors and pilgrims to Sussex since C1420, this grand old lady has historic soul. She has hosted celebrations from medieval banquets to Georgian balls, Victorian luncheons to Edwardian tea dances. Over the centuries flagons of ale, goblets of wine and flutes of champagne have been consumed beneath her eaves to the sounds of ladies’ chattering and gentlemen's laughter flooding through her walls. 

All three reception rooms boast inglenook fireplaces.  With endless historic features from ancient beams to linenfold doors, witch’s marks to ward off evil spirits and a secret tunnel hidden under the Great Hall fireplace that runs beneath the Abbey walls, The Pilgrims Rest is a truly unique Sussex wedding venue.  When the sun is shining your guests can flood out into the beautiful tended rose and walled gardens. As the evenings draw in, stoke up the fires, light some candles then watch as she sparkles into life. 

The Pilgrims a part of her history.

I had my wedding here yesterday, i fell in love with the venue as soon as i walked in many months ago. I cannot praise Amy and Amy-lou enough they are brilliant. Nothing is too much trouble, they recommend only the best caterers, entertainment etc and are so happy to help when you ‘do-it-yourself’. Our day was absolutely amazing and all the guests were full of compliments on the venue and the whole day. 10 out of 10 couldn’t wish for better.

Honestly it was just the best day and I can not thank you enough for all you did for us, you were just wonderful and not once did I feel nervous or stressed about anything as I knew it was all in good hands by yourself :) I had so many people comment on how wonderful and lovely you were and how you just did everything you could to help our guests so thank you.

We attended a wedding reception here last night; what a beautiful venue for a wedding. With the abbey just across the road it couldn’t be in a better spot. Very friendly staff.

We got married at The Pilgrims Rest in June 2018. From our first meeting Amy (and her sidekick 'little Amy') were absolutely brilliant. We wanted a DIY low-key, relaxed day in a beautiful venue and we got everything we could have hoped for and more. They both helped us with so many parts, from helping us find a bartender and staff who helped serving the food (Tres and Pauline they went above and beyond to keep our guests happy), to keeping calm and unwravelling a huge knot of fairy lights the day before when we had ran out of energy. I would recommend them without a doubt, and all of our guest had a brilliant day. We chose The Pilgrims Rest for its beautiful old building and ambience, but the two Amy's with their unwavering hard work which is carried out with smiles and pure enthusiasm to make others happy made it a day we will remember forever.

Thanks SO much to you for all your hard work and thought on the day, you made it so much more special as I could just switch off and enjoy the day. We had the most perfect day, I can't believe how beautifully it all worked out.
