Went up here on a Saturday afternoon, thought I had walked into a crèche, small loud children everywhere, screaming and running around, this is not a pub. I don't go to pubs to have to endure other people's kids, the place was chaos, turned around...More

A year ago I had the Sunday Roast of Pork Belly and it was fantastic. This time however, it was a different story. The gaggle of conspiratorial 'bar staff' behind counter gave me the immediate impression that their time was important than mine. Without a...More

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

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.
