First licensed to sell beer as far back as 1397, this splendid Grade II listed flint and half-timbered inn is set in a picturesque village with the South Downs Way passing its front door. The heavy oak beams and ancient inglenook fireplace add plenty of character to the bar, whilst the kitchen serves delights such as rustic boards to share; smoked mackerel pâté on toast; crab cakes with saffron mayonnaise; tomato and spinach-stuffed chicken supreme with polenta cakes; Thai green vegetable curry; and banoffee pie or apple compôte, Calvados cream and shortbread to finish. A network of smugglers' tunnels leads from the pub’s cellars.
