We’re a true country pub serving local beers, ales and cider. Our friendly bar team will stir up your favourite tipple, whether it’s a Chilgrove Dry gin and tonic, a glass of red or a flute of our sparkling English wine.

The great British countryside is at the heart of our pub and we’ve worked hard to incorporate the natural environment and the building’s history into our interiors. Inside you’ll find bespoke oak furniture, reclaimed art and a roaring fire to cosy up by.



The spacious restaurant features large picture windows overlooking a beautiful coppice and the rolling South Downs, and an open kitchen so guests can watch the chefs hard at work. We also have an intimate private dining room which seats up to 10 guests and is ideal for special occasions, meetings and workshops.


We are passionate about using seasonal, locally sourced produce in all our dishes. Our regularly changing menus are rich with ingredients sourced from our bountiful surroundings, including game, fish and British vegetables and herbs.

Sometimes an afternoon or evening visit simply isn’t long enough to soak up our scenic surroundings and savour our delicious food; so why not stay the night as well? Our pub features 14 sumptuous en-suite bedrooms which are located within the pub and in a separate annexe, all enjoying picturesque vistas of the countryside. Each cosy room is individual in décor, combining a charming cottage style with all the mod cons you could need.


We have five luxury double rooms with super king beds, one complete with a roll top bath. Eight double rooms are also available with king or super king beds, and we have a larger Snug room featuring a double bed that converts into twin beds and is interconnected with a double room; making it perfect for families.


Weekday rate (Tuesday to Friday) from £90 - £130. Weekend Rate (Saturday) from £105 - £155. These rates are quoted inclusive of our country buffet breakfast. Full English breakfast is available at an additional cost. We have a minimum of a two-night stay at the weekend.
