This was my third visit and each time I am impressed. Lovely country pub ambience, friendly efficient service and delicious food, not to mention it the homemade bread. Necessary to book lunchtimes and evenings.

We were passing through Exton on the South Downs Way walk. It was freezing and snowing outside so we popped in for lunch and it was definitely the right decision! Whilst the forward is towards the pricey side it was all excellent. We ordered sandwiches...More

This place deserves 6 stars! The food is wonderful-all freshly cooked and the service is the best in a pub Ive ever experienced. I have no criticism after many Saturday lunches spent there. You could moan that the carpark is too small but we have...More
