The restaurant has large picture windows overlooking a beautiful copice and the rolling South Downs. We also have an open kitchen so guests can be entertained by the chefs at work. We have an intimate, private dining room which holds up to 10 people so is ideal for meetings, workshops, team building, and celebration meals.

Our chefs are passionate about sourcing seasonal local produce wherever possible from O'Hagan's sausages with Hallgate Farm’s free range scrambled eggs, to John Murray's fabulous steaks, a fresh landed Dover Sole to the old Welldigger’s favourite of Oxtail. Finally a delicious display of desserts will be available on the deli counter for all to see and enjoy.



A country pub serving local beers, ales and cider. Our expert bar staff will stir up your favourite tipple suggesting something to fit the occasion from freshly squeezed orange juice, to Chilgrove Dry gin or a flute of our local award winning Upperton sparkling wine.

The traditional bar is a great meeting place for the rural community and we're working hard to keep the environment that's evolved over the last 70 years by incorporating the oak furniture made by Ted's father, reclaimed art and the fire place enjoyed over the years by so many customers.



When we embarked on this project Johnnie and I decided it would be a fantastic idea to add bedrooms so our customers could relax and stay longer to enjoy the environment and our delicious food. We added 14 sumptuous en-suite bedrooms which are located within the pub and also in a separate annexe, all enjoying the relaxing vistas of the countryside. They offer a cosy individual style whilst also incorporating a comfortable and practical design.

We have five luxury Double rooms with super king beds, one complete with a roll top bath. This is ideally suited for a special occasion such as a wedding night. Eight Double rooms are also available with king or super king beds, and one snug double room. The Snug room has a double bed that converts to twin beds and is also interconnecting with a Double room so offers a great family suite.

Weekday rate (Sun to Thurs) from £80 - £120. Weekend Rate (Friday & Saturday) from £100 - £145. These rates are quoted inclusive of our Country buffet breakfast and VAT. Full English breakfast is available at an additional cost. We have a minimum of a two night stay at the weekend.
