An engaging mix of beams and timber framing, log-burners, deep leather chairs and an eye-catching stone fireplace set the scene at this 16th-century inn at the heart of a pretty village in the South Downs. Ramblers diverting from the nearby long-distance footpath can sup beers from Upham Brewery's tasty range, and peruse the tempting menu, including pub classics and ever-changing specials. Dressed crab and cucumber cannelloni; or a whole, baked camembert could kick things off, before moving on to seared haunch of venison, butternut squash, crispy shallots and venison cottage pie perhaps. Views from the garden encompass the rolling downland edges.
