Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We went to celebrate a birthday. We were given a very warm welcome and enjoyed a delicious meal - fish and chips, sausage and mash - both were piping hot. Very tasty. Deserts were delicious too. Roaring fire. Hosts very attentive and friendly. Thank you.

We booked the Inn having seen the website of the previous owners which turned out to be a non-existent place. We were therefore in for a surprise: Steve and Maria had only just taken over the place and were actually closed-door! But they kindly booked...us in for the night on a B&B basis. Much needed as we had walked 22 miles. They bent over backwards to make our stay comfortable, they were very welcoming, the food (bangers and mash veg option!!) was fantastic and tasty, the fire was roaring even in the morning during a wonderful breakfast. The room was nice and we woke up to a lovely morning with the room basking in the sunshine. Maria and Steve have a lot of work to do but have most certainly started and I reckon this inn will be one of the best in the surroundings.More

Called in on a very wet day. Landlord was on his own but very happy to do lunch for us. We both had BLT baguettes with chips which were really good. We used to go there years ago but hear there have been problems with...previous landlords. We really hope the new landlord succeedsMore

What a lovely country pub, the new Landlord Paul and his staff were most welcoming. A great selection of bitters on draft (other drinks also available 😀) We ate with friends and had a lovely three course meal, all beautifully cooked and presented. And the...bill with two bottles of very pleasant red wine, was exceptionally reasonable, and a fair bit less than most pubs in the area. Well worth a visit, and we shall return.More

So glad we decided to revisit the Elsted Inn after quite a break. The new landlord Paul is very welcoming and he certainly serves up a wonderful meal. Very generous portions and beautifully cooked. We will certainly be visiting again the next time we are...in the Midhurst area.More

What a difference! New owner, Paul, has made an immediate impact on this once great pub. Not only has he got great plans for the future but he has made real improvements already. The beer is well kept and sensibly priced, the food is proper...pub food with absolutely no pretensions to be ‘gastro’! We ate there tonight and along with other diners really enjoyed our well cooked and presented meal. The place has clearly had a thorough clean and lick of paint and once again feels welcoming, relaxed and homely. Staff were welcoming and efficient. Long may the improvements continue. If you haven’t been before or for a long time - give it a try. You won’t be disappointed !More
