This small family-run pub has an excellent menu and a relaxed, friendly vibe that makes newcomers feel instantly at home. Kick things off with homemade farmhouse pâté or delicious Portobello mushrooms stuffed with goat’s cheese and herbs. As well as a succinct specials board, there are regular staples such as slow-roasted pork belly with South Downs cider sauce and colcannon, and homemade pie of the week. Stop by at lunchtime for lighter bites like sandwiches, jacket potatoes and ploughman’s lunches. Local ale, lager and gin are stocked at the bar, and regularly rotating beer means that you can always try something new. On Sundays an incredibly popular roast lunch provides the perfect way to refuel after a day spent walking or cycling in the South Downs National Park. Booking is highly recommended as tables fill up quickly. There are also two bed and breakfast rooms on the first floor.
