Description: Serving 5 real ales brewed locally, a choice of 2 draught lagers and on the odd occasion a 12% beer that is not for the lighthearted! Add to this a choice
of 3 red and 3 white wines the usual mix of hard and soft drinks and an atmosphere rarely bettered - we like to think that you will rather enjoy visiting
'the Shuck'. We serve good traditional pub grub with our speciality on a Thursday night being - cheaper than the chippy - at just £5 - check out our full menu. Southwick is also proud to host 'The World Conker Championships' and as a village that is the centre of some quite breathtaking walks it is hardly surprising the 'the Shuck' also welcomes all walkers. We have a large garden, a covered patio area and ample parking and we are right next to the home of our local cricket team 'the Southwick strokers'. Pop in and visit us. We'll make you feel very welcome. Or if you're a group and want something organised, just ring us, we are sure we will be able to help you.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2013

A delightful, very old pub set in the beautiful village of Southwick. I was with a group of 18 walkers and we ate here yesterday. I was very impressed. The service was great from a very nice fella (the owner I think) who seemed to be doing all the serving completely on his own. The menu was extremely varied and good value. The presentation was also superb. Home made fishcakes, Fish & chips, A superb salad nicoise with a whole tuna steak perfectly cooked. PLUS a whole lot more on the extensive menu.. I had the salad nicoise and my only criticism would be that there was far too much dressing on it and would suggest the dressing should be served in a small side jug. One other person who had the same agreed with me. A superb touch were the real linen napkins in their napkin rings. We all ate outside under an awning -it was such a hot day and it was a thoroughly enjoyable lunch. The service was very good and unobtrusive. The pub does a draught cider and several different beers. There's a large garden area and what looks to be a stage in the garden. Generally I think they only open Fri. Sat & Sunday lunchtimes . Plus of course evenings. The salad dressing issue only have stopped me giving it a 5!
