Walking from Europa Hotel to Frogshole Farm

I'm looking at a park/stay/fly at the Europa in October. Never keen on in-hotel dining, I searched for local watering holes and found the Frogshole Farm which according to good old Google maps is about 3/4 mile walk along the main roads. My first question is: is this worth visiting for a good pint and good food? second question: is there a more direct walking route maybe through the nearby housing estates? thirdly, do you have any other recommendations for dining on a Friday night which are within walking distance of the Europa? thankyou.

Stayed at the Europa years ago and you are right to avoid eating there

We walked to village pub but new housing estate had been built since Google maps had been created so got a bit lost. It is a walk along a main road, mostly on grass verge as no footpath but it is do-able, about 20mins walk. Food was nice, not a pint drinker so can't comment on the ales ;-)

If parking at Europa leave plenty of time to find a space, was complete free for all and people were queuing waiting for buses to bring people back from Gatwick.

I wouldn't choose to stay there again, wondered what the car was going to be like when we got back the whole holiday. There's a review for it on my list.

Good luck.

Yes you can cut through the housing estate to get to the Frogshole Farm. There is a footpath just past the bus stop on Lucerne Drive. There is also a new pub nearer the Europa on the otherside of the roundabout called the Coaching Halt but not eaten in there myself so can't recommend. The only other I can think of within walking distance (20mins) is the Hillside Inn on the Balcombe Road, although gets very busy at the weekend but food is good.
