Village inn with splendid downland views

At a glance

AA Pick of the Pubs
Bar menu
Open all year
Wheelchair access
Dog friendly

Set beside the large sloping green in one of the prettiest old villages on the South Downs, it's just a short stroll along downland paths from the inn to the magnificent coastal walk at the renowned Seven Sisters cliffs. The pub was once the base for smugglers landing contraband and the interior recalls such heady days, with log fires, beams, stone floors and ancient settles. With a rotating selection of beers from local microbreweries, there is always something interesting on tap. The menu, too, is laden with local ingredients and fresh fish features in several choices; or look for game pie or beef stroganoff. Steamed puddings lead the sweet choice.
