Open all year

David and Christiane Butler have run their 17th-century coaching inn in this pretty South Downs village since 1985. Popular with walkers, cyclists and, let’s face it, anyone looking for good food and drink, its unspoiled Victorian bar, with two open fires, is widely known for championing local microbreweries like Ballards. The oldest part of the pub, with many exposed beams, is the restaurant, where you’ll find dishes such as chicken, mushroom and tarragon pie; avocado and spinach bake; lamb rump with dauphinoise potatoes; steak and kidney pie; sea bass fillet and samphire, and local game choices in season.
