The Murrell Arms
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
This wonderfully old-fashioned, quintessentially English pub is a must for anyone looking for a relaxing place to eat and drink. Pull up a chair in one of the three bars, each with warming open log fires and an array of fascinating memorabilia adorning the walls. In the public bar, enjoy darts or try your hand at 'ringing the bull', a game that dates back to the Middle Ages and is perfect for bringing friends together - the loser can buy the drinks, perhaps a round of Fuller's real ales or a bottle of delicious English country wine to share' There are no juke boxes here, just live music on certain evenings and a bubbly yet calming ambience all week long. Children are permitted until 9pm and there are two beautiful gardens; one secluded, grassed and gated and the other with a patio for those preferring to stay on solid ground. At the Murrell Arms you can enjoy a tempting selection of hearty English cuisine at very reasonable prices. For lunch, choose bacon hock or two king-sized bangers served with new potatoes and vegetables. In the evening and on weekends, a similar selection is served with crusty bread and succulent sweetcorn. There is always a rice dish on offer of a varying sort and a satisfyingly familiar ploughman's with Cheddar or Stilton. With Barnham Station only five minutes walk away, there is no easier way to experience a true taste of English culture.
