AA Pick of the Pubs

Open all year

This renovated, 17th-century traditional pub and contemporary dining inn stands roughly equidistant from Midhurst, home of the Cowdray Estate and British polo, and Petworth, with its National Trust mansion. Travellers stopping at this inn will find tastefully furnished rooms with beamed ceilings, log fires and peaceful patio and garden. Those seeking a truly local pint will find real ales from Langham, brewed a mile away, and Sussex Gold from the Arundel Brewery. Lighter meals include linguine carbonara with bacon, mushroom and parmesan; and open sandwiches, ciabattas and salads. From the mains selection there might be rolled belly of pork, bubble-and-squeak, kale and mustard cream sauce; or pan-fried fillet of sea trout, leek and chive crushed potato, buttered spinach and white wine cream sauce. Leave room for one of the tempting desserts, perhaps white chocolate rice pudding, rhubarb compôte and rhubarb syrup.
