where do i begin! i had the pleasure of staying at the stonemasons inn for over 12 weeks due to working in the local area.i have been to many 17th - 18th century buildings, all look lovely from the outside but lack the character inside, the stonemasons inn is a total exemption from this. from the moment you enter the...

We have been driving past here for years and finally decided to give it a go. First impressions Friendly staff nice surroundings beams wooden floors etc. excellent food trout salad and vegetable lasagne well presented and tasty. Unfortunately all of this was somewhat ruined by local clientele rude swearing constantly noisy kids running around in bar .

The Stonemasons is a great base from which to enjoy the beautiful West Sussex countryside around Petworth and Petworth House itself, or even, like us to use as a bolthole for a few days out of the rat race. Landlady Tracy would be the first to admit that the Stonemasons is a work in progress, but it is easy to... More

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

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

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

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

We had had a good lunch here about 3 months ago so we booked a table well in advance for ourselves and our guests for supper on the way back from Goodwood Revival. The restaurant and bar were very busy and the three young, unsupervised, harassed members of staff were struggling to cope. After lots of confusion over our drinks... More
