“bad Experience”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

We live local to the stonemasons and i wanted to take my partner out for a meal, we walked in and the music was loud, sat down and before we ordered we asked if it could be turned down. The music kept being turned up and it was like being in a disco. The landlord had no respect at all. we both order our meal and Considering it was only 6.45pm you would expect them to have the items on the menu as it was very limited and there was only one other couple in the restaurant. The fish & chips we ended up ordering was very poor, it was like it had been re-cooked, nice big chips but so hard and the same with the batter. To top it off we had to push the boxer dog away from our table 3 times. We paid and left, be careful you don’t trip over the two dog bowls on the floor on the way out. If you were a contractor stay there and drinking at the bar you was ok. Thank god I can tell my friends to stay away. The young girl that served us was very nice. you been warned. this comment is very fair

Came upon this pub by chance and stayed for two nights, great accommodation and excellent food. Customer service is superb and nothing was too much trouble. Our bed was so comfortable I didn't want to leave it. Mr Baloo, the very well mannered boxer dog was delightful to meet. Cannot speak highly enough if this little gem in the Sussex countryside

Room Tip: Uncle Jed's room very comfortable

Want to stay in a real old English Pub and be within walking distance of the delightful village of Petworth? Overlooking the walls of the Petworth House estate this sweet five bedroomed English pub is a delight to stay at for a few days. Well located to many attractions in West Sussex you couldn't find a cleaner, well decorated, old beamed ceilings and walls, yet the best of linens and towels. Nice big bathtub, well lit and very very comfortable bed. The new owners are wonderful and the English breakfast was great. Make this pub a stop on your trip around the Sputh Downs of West Sussex.

What a charming place to visit... We just tripped upon the stonemasons on a Sunday drive to Petworth..
How lucky were we to meet Mr. Baloo and the girls.. Baloo is front of house to give you a warm welcome. We sat in the garden which is lovely and we had the most wonderful Sunday lunch of pork belly and finest South Downs lamb all washed down with a perfectly chilled bottle of Côte de Provence rose. We shall return..

Nice locals pub .... And food is great. I had the burger which was stacked home made patties with onion rings and other half had the chicken asparagus pie which was also very good pub grub. Not as poncey as some other nearby pubs but a 'proper' pub.... And reasonably priced. Would stop by again if stopping thru.

We stayed here last weekend and were absolutely delighted! The room was very spacious and comfortable we even had out own library! There is a very pretty garden and we were able to eat outside, they have bbqs and gigs as well in the summer.

The food was delicious we had a yummy chicken and asparagus pie and a steak. All the meats and pies are sourced locally and you can certainly taste the difference. Breakfast was a proper full english and am still thinking about it!

The staff were all very friendly and helpful and gave us good ideas of where to visit and how to get there. The owners are lovely and told us how they took over a rather run down place and have completely turned it round. We had a very jolly time with them!

I have booked some friends in to stay as the location, accommodation and food are excellant.

The landlord and landlady Ian and Tracey have done a sensational job in the pub over the last year, with a really impressive refurbishment which is perfect for the building as well as creating a fine staff team and excellent menu. If you haven't visited recently, you must! I've visited twice in the last month, and plan to return again and again. Check out the lovely garden at the rear - a real sun trap.
