We hadn't been to the Stonemasons for years, and it has recently been refurbished, so we tried it for a snack lunch. The staff are welcoming and attentive, but there were some issues: the wild mushroom dish was hot, plentiful and delicious; whilst the smokie was tasty, it was a tiny portion and tepid. The coffee had no discernible taste... More

A true find! We went to this pub for dinner only to find they had stopped serving food unfortunately but we were made extremely welcome and the landlady even helped to find us another local pub for dinner! We have already booked to go back for dinner, thank you for your kind hospitality. As publicans ourselves it is nice to... More

A beautiful country pub with a traditional feel with a modern and comfortable setting. With myself being vegetarian and my fiancé vegan we are not the easiest to cater for however having requested a little additional info regarding the vegan side of things the head chef came to speak with us. Not only were we catered for exceptionally well but... More

The Stonemasons Inn is basically a drinkers pub that's trying to be something better. The website looks good but the image it gives doesn't match with the experience. The reality - dirty carpets, dirty toilets and average food. If you like dogs, you'll do fine here but if you don't, beware. The owners boxer dog prowls around watching diners eat.... More

I recently visited for a meal, the food was delicious! All 8 plates were cleared which is always a great sign! All the staff were so welcoming and friendly. What a lovely atmosphere and location too. Will definitely be returning!

We stayed at the Stonemasons Inn when we were attending a nearby wedding. However we would 100% go back, just to enjoy the place itself, its staff, and the local sites. I cannot convey how friendly, kind, and helpful the couple are who run the Stonemasons today. From flexibility around early arrival, to lovely clean rooms, to fabulous classic English... More

Within one year Ian and Tracey have dragged a sad old pub up by its bootstraps and created a friendly, welcoming alehouse serving fabulous food and hosting fun events. The town of Petworth is a joy with all the antique shops and the beautiful South Downs up the road.

I stayed at the Stonemasons as part of my tour of Sussex, and I can honestly say I was impressed. Throughout our tourwe have stayed at many 'pub hotels' and most of them are exactly what you would expect: A pub with some rooms to let. The Stonemasons was a bit different. The rooms were in line with a tudor... More
