Initial greeting was tepid. Table by the window was drafty. Ordered fishcakes... mostly potato and heavily soaked with oil. Side salad consisted entirely of sliced raw peppers which is great if you like peppers! Pub shabby but not chic...

Very poor choice of over priced dishes. Why are pubs so expensive. It's like they've crawled up their own back sides and come up smelling of roses then charge for it Not impressed and veggie choices both had goats cheese. How uninspiring Not sure if woman was owner but she had as much appeal as the goats cheese and obviously... More

This is where we go when we want to have a special family meal. Gourmet food, mostly locally sourced and cooked by expert chefs. Lovely, cosy atmosphere with attentive service and the best pub garden in Sussex. Beautiful rural views and peaceful location.

Four of us had dinner on Saturday night and really loved it. The food was very good and the restaurant had a great atmosphere. We will definitely return and collect our loyalty points

lunchtime and the place was full until after 3 (pity the staff) but this shows how popular this is even though out of the way. Definitely a "go back again" place.

Beautiful old pub in amazing countryside surroundings! Service excellent. Now on to the food; fish & chips- fish overcooked. Brown-brown instead of golden-brown. Chunky chips very dry. Sausage and mash- sausages overcooked/black. On a positive note the corn fritter veg option was very good. We'll assume the chef(s) were having a bad day.

We went on spec to dine at this pub and on a very cold night the warm open fire and friendly atmosphere were very welcome. The menu was varied and the food when it came was well cooked and most enjoyable. I recommend it for a small number of diners
