The service and food are excellent along with a warm welcome. The rooms are comfortable and clean and well appointed. The twin room we had was a bit small for us as was the shower but it was okay. Traffic noise could be bothersome for some people but we slept fine. On a Monday and Tuesday the BB does not...

Last year I made a booking for July for £145 for 2 rooms. Called up again this year and due to Goodwood week prices were double that. In trying to make the booking I was told at least 5 times that "You do realise it's goodwood week then don't you". Simon, the manager I spoke with was so officious in...

I have to say i'm getting a little fed up with people who write reviews saying i'm "officious" just because they can't have what they want. I had to repeat myself a number of times as the mobile phone line this man was calling from was terrible and I could hardly hear him and each time I mentioned its goodwood...

I stayed at the bluebell Friday through to Sunday morning. I thought it was clean and tidy and offered a good menu with nice decor.When I arrived Friday night Simon the owner was behind the bar and was very welcoming as were the regulars. I initially only planned to have dinner Friday night but on the strength of the meal...

Me and a friend stopped here for a drink and later dinner after a long walk on the Downs. We were quite up for spending the afternoon drinking and eating their food, and we're easy customers but the place had a bad vibe and the manager a poor attitude. Sadly we had no choice for dinner so had to go...

I'm sorry you felt the need to write such a review and I am genuinely sorry you didn't enjoy your meal. ( nothing frozen, all homemade). with regard to the person you mention, you were actually talking about me (the owner) not the manager so I know exactly what happened that day. when you entered through the garden room and...

I had a bedroom with shared shower room and it was clean and functional. The host Simon was friendly and helpful. For walkers, it's about 20 walk from the South Downs Way, and was my second stop on the walk from Winchester to Eastbourne. This review is of the accommodation which I would rate 4/5 while the restaurant would be...

I had such high hopes for my birthday dinner out here having read a few great reviews. Despite it being a Thursday we expected some other guests and a little bit of atmosphere but were sorely disappointed. We were one of two couples there but still didn't get a good service. Our starters, scallops, were cooked as should be expected...

I'm sorry but this is just not true I served you that night(the owner) not a waiter, so I know exactly what happened. I spoke to you through your entire meal and asked if everything was ok with your food, during and when clearing. you never once mentioned that you didn't enjoy your food, even when given the opportunity. as...

My friend and I had decided it would be a great idea to cycle the South Downs Way offroad in the winter after a wet spell and a thaw… duuuhhhhh! Bad idea. The mud was horrendous. We had three punctures between us, our only pump broke, one of our headlights failed, the mud had ripped one of our tyres, and...

Simon, thank you for making us welcome after a wet cold day trekking along the South Downs Way, we had a delicious dinner and our room was comfortable warm and provided a good nights rest for the next day's walking

We stayed here for a weekend get away and really liked it. The room was comfortable and a reasonable size with a good sized bathroom with a shower. It was fairly clean but could do with a bit more care and attention there was a bit of painting and general maintenance needed. The room was really hot when we arrived...
