This 16th-century former drovers’ alehouse is one of those quintessential English country pubs that Sussex specialises in. Tucked below the steep scarp slope of the South Downs National Park, expect unspoilt cottage-style bars, brick and quarry tiled floors, low beams, latch doors, and a vast inglenook.
