This charming old coaching inn offers good, quality pub food and well-appointed rooms in the glorious setting of the South Downs National Park. The picturesque village of Findon is located midway between Eastbourne and Winchester, making The Village House an ideal stop-off point for people walking the South Downs Way – and for their four-footed companions too, as dogs are very welcome in the bar and the pub even has its own loveable pooch.
The bar remains the centre of the inn, and patrons can enjoy a pint and watch the rugby while others sit down to a meal. The owners are proud to serve proper pub food prepared to the highest standards, including their popular pies with homemade tops and bottoms and ﬁllings such as slow-cooked brisket with ale and mushroom. Their salt beef sandwiches are always a hit for lunch and they also serve a fantastic Sunday roast with free-range pork from Storrington up the road and succulent lamb from nearby Midhurst. Make sure you book for Sunday lunch, for Friday evenings, and for the popular Thai night on Wednesdays, with authentic chicken curries prepared by the Thai chef. You can round off your meal with favourite homemade puds such as crème caramel and sticky toffee pudding, and wash it down with hearty local ales such as Downlands Brewery’s Devil’s Dyke Porter or wines from Hennings in Chichester.
