Award-winning rustic food and local ales to match

At a glance

Bar menu
Kids play area

Isolated but well worth finding, this dining pub enjoys a lovely garden setting on a peaceful dead-end lane looking out to the South Downs. The bar retains some of the character of a Victorian alehouse, with Long Man Best Bitter and Long Blonde on tap, while the dining room strikes a cool, modern-rustic pose. Well-sourced food shines on daily-changing menus, served throughout the pub, from calves' liver in bacon and shallot sauce with colcannon, broccoli and potatoes, to Thai chickpea cakes with crispy aubergine and tofu kofta, garlic spinach, mint yogurt and pepper coulis. Good value fixed-price and children’s menus are also available.
