Looking for somewhere to get lunch on my way to an hotel, found this on a rating website. Parking was a bit of a pain, but persevered, the main dining area was full, it looked like a pensioners party (I qualify). The friendly staff directed us to a table and the menu for lunch was really comprehensive, although all we... More

Don't be deceived by the understated exterior - this is a real find! We booked a table for a special celebration and were definitely not disappointed. From the champagne waiting on ice when we arrived to the delicious puddings, this restaurant delivered. The food was all tasty, fresh and hot but the thing that sets this establishment apart is the... More

We popped in on spec on a Tuesday lunch time, and the restaurant was quiet as you would expect. We were greeted warmly and excellently served by Leeanne, who was informative and knowledgeable. Very good menu and wine offering, we enjoyed our lunch very much - compliments also to the chef.

We stopped at the pub on our way back home and stopped when we saw the sign. Great selection on the menu. The food was freshly cooked and was tasty and good value. The service was excellent I recommend this pub

Wednesday night asked for a seat in what looked like a very quiet pub. We were asked if we'd booked and when we said we hadn't were told we'd have to sit by the wedged open door by the car park. Very condescending attitude by the server who was also barman and seemed to be doing everything else. I had... More

Whilst staying in Cocking whilst walking the South Downs Way with a friend we were recommended the Bluebell at Cocking for our evening meal. On arrival we asked the member of staff who appeared to be trying to run the place singlehandedly if we could have a table for food. When we said we had not booked we were given... More

Accidentally stopped here on our way through South Downs. Great atmosphere, friendly service and very good sandwiches. No problem with the size - plenty for a big man. And of course set in a very nice country side setting.

David and I always get a warm welcome from Simon and staff. We were off on a South Downs walk after lunch. D had scampi and I had the trio incl scampi, fishcake and cod. No complaints and we washed food down with San Miguel, nice and cold. Coffee to finish.
