Traditional downland free house in South Downs National Park

At a glance

Bar menu
Open all year

Over the road from this charming period pub is the fascinating Amberley Museum; adjacent is Houghton Bridge over the River Arun. The pub has a long association with the museum's industrial heritage theme as quarrymen and limekiln workers once bought their beer here. What attracts people to the pub today are its candlelit bar's log fires, real ales from Harvey's, Long Man and Skinner's breweries, the sheltered garden with views of the South Downs countryside, and the extensive menu. This offers pub classics and daily specials, including fish, steaks, Mediterranean and vegetarian dishes.
