Nice room right at the top of the shop, on a Saturday night. Very clean, great friendly staff, excellent bed. Unfortunately even on the third floor the music from a function down in the bar was very audible. Not a real gripe - it was a Saturday night, and these things happen, but I knocked it from 5 stars to... More

Dear David thanks so much for the review, Friday night is normally our live music night sorry if they were loud on your particular Saturday ... unusual for it to run much after 12 so I hope we see you again soon : ) ! More

Dropped in and had a few drinks with friends, good location, reasonable prices and friendly staff. The menu looked ok, basic pub grub. There is a separate room for dining which wasn't very busy on Friday night but the bar was buzzing.

Came here for the first time with some new friends and would come again. Lovely cosie feel to the place with nice decor. Helpful friendly staff who was glad to let me know what they had to offer in their wine selection. Will be thinking of going there when planning another night out.

The room and bathroom were fine and we were on the second floor and not directly above the bar so no noise issues. The double bed was two singles pushed together so lots of room but it made the duvet fractionally too small if you have a tendency to sleep at the edge. The bar seemed nice enough, we didn’t...

I visited in early October for a birthday lunch for my daughter. We all opted for the Sunday roast, and were not disappointed. The staff were very pleasant and attentive, and the decor and table settings were lovely.

I was visiting friends who live in Lancing on Saturday evening and booked to stay here overnight as it's quite nearby. There was a small mix up regarding my room when I first arrived, but this was sorted out very quickly by the manager who was very apologetic and also offered me a complimentary drink from the bar.
