I visited The Elsted Inn back in December for my works Christmas party. The staff gave a very warm welcome, especially Malcolm, Lisa and Emma, they were extremely friendly, helpful and attentive throughout my stay. The location is beautiful both in the morning and evening with the countryside surroundings yet it is not far from local villages and activity's. The... More

Went for lunch with two quite fussy relatives. We asked the landlord if there were any other dishes, not listed on the bar menu, and he very obligingly offered us three additions. The rib eye steak was delicious, as were the mussels. The fruit crumble was as good as I've ever tasted, accompanied by perfect home made ice cream. All... More

Brief trip down to Sussex on cold winter's day. Very friendly welcome from Malcolm and Lisa. Glass of warm mulled wine on arrival. Delicious food, including haddock wrapped in parma ham (lots of flavour) and arguably the best sticky toffee pudding I have ever eaten. Very good accommodation and an excellent cooked breakfast in the morning. If you enjoy historic... More

Found this gem of an Inn at Elsted for Lunch. All were very friendly and the food was tasty and fresh. One of us had the organic burger and the other had Lambs Liver, both were excellent plus proper chip potatoes. Mine host was very friendly and the service was excellent.

Needing fresh horizons after a day of computer screens, I nipped out for a pint and a bit of supper. I had a lovely welcome, and despite the late hour 20:45 I was delivered a scrumptious pumpkin ravioli in cream sauce with roasted walnuts. Delicious with a fruity glass of Merlot. This of corse led to temptation, and sticky toffee... More

We had an overnight stay here, with a group of friends for a wedding. The hosts were wonderful...very helpful and considerate. The room was comfy and clean. lovely hot shower too and the breakfast was super. The room was warm, but not too warm, and was nicely decorated. and quiet too. Oh, and a lovely touch...they sat us all together... More

My first trip to West Sussex was undeniably special. After traveling from Los Angeles to work in Maidenhead I traveled to the Elsted Inn based on the Tripadvisor reviews I had read. It did not disappoint. I found the warmth and friendliness of Lisa and Malcolm to be welcoming for my much needed respite. My room was exquisite in its... More

My friends and I shared a portion of Nachos, they were outstanding. I personally like very spicey food and could have done with a few more Jalapenos but the... More
