We ended up eating in the bar by the fire (our choice). Excellent food and relaxed atmosphere. Good portion sizes and nice old building. Typifies what a good English pub should be. Would definitely go again if in the area.

This pub is very much a locals pub, with characters, dogs, all very friendly. It’s a good old ‘spit & sawdust’ type decor (meant in the nicest way!) wooden floors, tables, log fire etc. The food is excellent! Little finishing touches that matter so much....More

Went here after a walk at Petworth Park. Did a search for pubs around Petworth, found this place, read the reviews - they're spot on! The pub interior is really interesting with lots of beams and old nicknacks. The garden looked great for summer days...More
