“Head and Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2012

Unfailingly helpful staff make this pub what it is. I stayed for a night during a diving course at the scuba school opposite. Perhaps a little rough around the edges, but perfect for our needs. Well put together burgers, good range of beers, and decent room with space for a camp bed. There was a birthday function on the night we were staying, with a band booked until the small hours, but the owners warned us about this before we booked. Good customer service all round.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2012

My girlfriend and I did a weekend at London Scuba and stayed here, which could not be a more perfect location for the scuba center. We had room 5 which was in the back so no traffic noise and didn't really hear the planes but if you're a light sleeper you may hear them. Obviously this is not the pub's fault and anywhere you stay in the area will have this. We were having an active weekend away so treated ourselves to the King room which was nice and clean, big bed and bathroom, only downside was no door on bathroom. Massive rainfall shower was amazing after a long day in scuba gear though. Towels and sheet very nice and the food, as others have mentioned, was very good. Breakfast is included in the price as well. Overall very quaint friendly pub atmosphere but not really destination spot unless going to Gatwick or Scuba.

Room Tip: Room 5 King size, in back so quieter, but no bathroom door

We stayed here last weekend, as we were doing a diving course at London Scuba (which is just opposite and very convenient for us). They are very nice and friendly. The room was basic but spacious and clean. The bathroom was also big with lots of natural light though it only had a bath, no shower.
Everyone seems to know everyone in the pub. The food was nice, lovely burgers, pies and bangers and mash. Breakfast was also good.
Beds were comfortable but it was a bit noisy with music in the pub one night and the planes flying to/from Gatwick woke us up a couple of times.

All in all they were very friendly, which made our stay a lot nicer, the food was good and the room was basic but very clean.

The pub has plenty of potential but needs a lick of paint and a bit of elbow grease - has the feel of a managed pub. Food fine, decent value, but not top notch

we stayed here on the 1st july before we flew out of gatwick the next day found it to be good valve for money. the locals make you feel welcome. the room we had faced the road as we are not used to road noise at home we found it hard to get used to, not the pubs fault. how ever when you got to sleep it was a good nights sleep.the breakfast is very good and plenty of it,

I stayed here because it's a friendly place that I had had a drink in previously. The beer is excellent and the food is no nonsense pub-grub; and what's wrong with that I ask you?

Nice beer garden at the back, friendly locals and a clean and tidy en-suite room, with no noise at all from the bar. It's dog friendly as well.

I'd happliy stay again.
