We went here for Sunday dinner as we have always passed it a lot and is been busy but never actually been in, we took the plunge and we were really glad we did! The drinks menu was good, the food was most enjoyable, the...menu was varied and the staff were excellent. The pub is old and traditional and untouched, which they’re aren’t many left so it was lovely to see! We were made to feel most welcome and will definitely return again!More

Nice little country pub. Desperately needs some investment to brighten it up and improve the interior. Everything else was ok, and nothing was poor. Just needs some TLC to compete with other pubs in the area. Didnt have food, just drinks.

Food was good however the pub was overall quite dirty. Toilets were also dirty. Not impressed especially with COVID concerns.

We were made most welcome by the friendly staff on our lunchtime visit to this country pub. We sat inside and enjoyed the glorious views across open countryside in the distance. Our main courses of spinach and ricotta quiche and home made pie were delicious...and very filling. However, after a short break we indulged in home made fruit crumble - naughty but nice!! We hope to return again at some time in the future.More

We visited the Swan for a lovely lunch whilst staying locally and visiting friends. The staff were friendly and the food and local Harvey's beer was great. We had heard that the pies were recommended so I had the Chicken, Leek and Bacon pie which...was very tasty. We also had the veg lasagne, a BLT baguette and a prawn baguette. Everyone finished their meals and commented how much they enjoyed it and how full up they were. Didnt really have any room for desserts but had them anyway. Great pub to visit and they also accept dogs which was a bonus for our Springer. Well recommendedMore

Very good homemade chicken,bacon and leek pie, a large slice with new potatoes and gravy. The prawn Marie Rose baguette was beautiful bread and a really generous helping of prawns with a crisp side salad. If you want to eat in the garden and find...stairs tricky it’s best to go out and round the back entrance after you’ve ordered. The garden is large and social distancing easy. Good system at bar and check and trace in place.More

A great country pub with a good selection of beers. The pies were fantastic with crumbly pastry and tender meat. Staff were very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed.

Well I dont get out that much these days so when I do I like to make it special. My wife and I had a lovely meal here a few evenings ago. I can eat fish so Scampi was great for me but my wife...is Vegetarian with some allergies, and a bit more difficult to please. The Manager Mark on booking couldn't have been more helpful and same for the staff on the night as well as the Chef. Who by the way probably makes the best chips in the neighbourhood, not to mention the very best Rhubarb crumble I have ever eaten. Typical Pub food prices so not expensive, but also lovely ambience in this very old pub and fab views in Beer garden at rear.More

Friendly service, traditional British pub in the beautiful Sussex countryside with a large garden. Beers from Harvey's in good condition. Food was plain pub grub but a few £ per plate too expensive for what it was. The gents loos could do with some improvements....Worth popping in if you are passing by or walking in the countryside.More
