We’re a true country pub, serving local real ales, spirits and cider as well as fresh, locally-sourced British cuisine. Our spacious dining area features large picture windows overlooking a beautiful coppice and the rolling South Downs, and an open kitchen so guests can watch the chefs hard at work. We also have an intimate private dining room which seats up to 10 guests and is ideal for special occasions, meetings and workshops.
Please note that as we make all our dishes using only the freshest seasonal produce, our menus change frequently and the menus displayed on our website are samples.
Sometimes an afternoon or evening visit simply isn’t long enough to soak up our scenic surroundings and savour our delicious food; so why not stay the night as well? Our pub features 14 sumptuous en-suite bedrooms which are located within the pub and in a separate annexe, all enjoying picturesque vistas of the countryside. Each cosy room is individual in décor, combining a charming cottage style with all the mod cons you could need.
We have five luxury double rooms with super king beds, one complete with a roll top bath in the bedroom. Nine double rooms are also available including two with roll top baths. Four of our rooms can be converted in twin rooms.
Weekday rate (Tuesday to Friday) from £90 - £130. Weekend Rate (Saturday) from £105 - £155. These rates are quoted inclusive of our country buffet breakfast. Full English breakfast is available at an additional cost. We have a minimum of a two-night stay at the weekend.
Dogs are very welcome to stay in any of bedrooms, for a small extra charge of £15 per dog. Please let a member of our team know upon booking if you are bringing your dog along.
