The Village House Coaching Inn is nestled in the newly formed South Downs National Park, at the heart of the picturesque downland village of Findon, near Worthing and was first mentioned by name in the 'Findon Chronicles' in 1527 when it became the property of a Mr Thomas Beret. Since then the building has seen many changes of use and has been a private house as well as a convalescent home for the well heeled of London (no change there then). In the 1930s the Village House became a guest house and tea room - a recently found advertisement dating from this time boasted of... en pension terms of 2 ½ guineas to 4 guineas per week-according to room and season... and... rooms with such modern conveniences as electric light. Today our rooms still retain their old world charm and atmosphere, but we try to offer a little more luxury than in the 1930s. If you love walking, we are ideally located for both the South Downs and Monarchs Way, which both offer fantastic views across the south downs and Sussex coast. If golf is your passion there are two challenging golf courses nearby, or if it's horse racing, then Fontwell and Goodwood racecourses are within easy distance. Findon is also the home of the Gifford Racing Stables who produced the famous Grand National winner, Aldaniti.

Looks lovely from outside. However the rooms are so old and in need of renovation. Rooms Iook like a care home. Food average. Had to wait a long time for breakfast & this was annoying as we were in a hurry to leave.

Friday evening the public bar was crowded and buzzing despite this the service for diners was prompt, attentive and very efficient. A good selection of food ensured there was something for all tastes. A hatch from the bar enables the staff to ensure that the food travels

We held my aunt's wake at the Village House Inn as it was her favourite pub. The staff couldn't have been more helpful or friendly. We were a group of 15 and Oliver put together a menu which was perfect and the food delicious. Our table was in the bar which was great as the pub

I was in a single en-suite room on a room only basis, for 1 night. The pub, (not sure why its called a hotel),I chose this establishment as it was central to where I needed to be in that area, and the rates were competitive. Although the room was a little shabby, and the

A pleasant overnight stay. Service was very attentive throughout. Our room compared very favourably with accommodation we've experienced in (less well-run) establishments of a similar age and we were able to forgive the occasional creak and groan during the night. Breakfast was
