There were nine of us, including two children and a baby. We had a great time, the service was friendly, relaxed, unhurried, and engagingly tolerant. The drinks were good value, £15 for a bottle of decent wine, and the food was truly excellent. The vegetarian...More

I was disappointed food tepid and desert was supposed to be pannacotta it was so rich we couldn't eat it and was nothing like a Pannacotta should be. Also was told whist eating desert we only had 25 mins left before they wanted table back.

More of a restaurant than pub to be honest - food very good. However, there are often far too many children running around to provide what I call 'a proper pub'. Having said this its a great lunch time venue when the food prices are...More

Locals and foodies mix in this delightfully bright and cheerful family-friendly food pub – a hidden gem, which has remained busy and buzzy since it opened six years ago. Something of a local institution, this fabulous pub serves good honest food, prepared with skill and passion. Beautifully prepared roast meals are served on Sundays from 12 to 6pm. With superb Sussex reared meats, a vegetarian and fish option as well as small portions for children, it’s hard to find a reason not to visit.
