“Best Pub B&B in England”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

We have stayed in many Pub B&Bs in England and this one is head and shoulders over others. We stayed for two nights. On arrival the staff were friendly and helpful. We had asked for a quiet room which is what we got in the centre of the two other rooms ("Courtyard"). It was a large spacious room with separate bathroom with separate bath and shower. The fridge in the room had complimentary waters as well as a jug of fresh milk. Lovely to make a cup of tea in the morning with fresh milk!! The room was quiet and plenty big enough for us although the owner later told us that it was the smallest room!! We ate dinner at the pub in the evening. A good varied menu with a lot of seafood dishes on the 'specials board'. The food was quickly and well served, was hot and plentiful. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Breakfast was served on the patio beside a small stream and pasture land. In the sun and these idyllic surroundings, it was perfect. I wish that we could have stayed the week. I would thoroughly recommend this wonderful place!!!

Room Tip: The pub is quiet but if you want to guarantee it ask for the "Courtyard". I believe that t...

Stayed one night and wished it had been longer. We had a large uniquely designed room which felt really different, natural wood and a huge bed - it reminded me of west Texas, such a relief after all the standard rooms around in hotels now. The pub is beautiful and intimate with a garden by a stream and meadow where in full sunshine on a gorgeous terrace we were lucky enough to have one of the best breakfasts ever. The bed was superb. The evening meal - just fantastic - and a menu which was so tempting and varied that we have to go back one day. How anyone could give this place less than full marks is beyond me. Where else do you get a fridge in your room with complimentary sparkling water, fresh milk, and juice? The staff were good too. The room was a bit too hot at night - a fan would have been great - but that's a minor point in the overall picture!

Great food, great staff, great value....that's it really!!! I went there with friends/family. The menu was very varied and interesting. We all had bubble and squeak with beautiful home cooked ham, it was described as 'light lunch' it was enormous and very tasty.

We visited on an evening when staff were thin on the ground in the kitchen (only one chef) and were delighted with every aspect of our meal. The menu is cleverly compiled, with a selection of tapas available in addition to starters and mains. This gives the diner a wider and more interesting choice of options. The standard of cooking was superb - in particular a zarzuela ( Spanish seafood, pepper and tomato stew: a dish which you'd have a real job to find in this country, let alone in a pub dining room. It was wonderful! Lovely staff and a nice ambience overall.

My sister in law and I stayed here for 2 nights at the end of Apr. We had the rooms called Rother and Courtyard, both were very roomy and very different from each other. Both had Nesspresso m/c's as well as fresh milk in the fridge which also complimentary water and juice. The staff and landlady were very charming and helpful as soon as we arrived we were shown to our rooms. Dinner on both nights was excellant and not too expensive, the servings were more than adequate and you were asked aout the time you would like your breakfast served the following morning which was all cooked to order while you had the cereal of your choice. The 2 dogs and cats were adorable too, all liking a bit of fuss.

Room Tip: The Courtyard room was at the back of the pub and therefore less traffic noise from the road. The Co...

An overnight stay here, while attending a private function in nearby Petworth, was a very pleasant surprise. The charming landlady has thought of everything, her rooms are comfortable and well appointed, all the staff welcoming and friendly. Our room, the Rother, named after the river which runs by the property, was very clean and fitted with everything one could wish for. The bed was extremely comfortable, linens fresh and excellent quality, and the large spacious bathroom quite delightful. There was plenty of hot water and no problems with the pressure. Breakfast, served in a charming room, with attentive but well-trained dogs sitting by the warm, open fireside, felt like being in someone's home, not a pub. The food quality was excellent, coffee delicious and home-made preserves a nice touch. This is a lovely place to stay and highly recommended.

Room Tip: Each of the three rooms is quite individual. All are a good size and very well appointed with a Robe...
