This was an excellent stopover for our South Downs Way walking holiday. We were made welcome as soon as we arrived. The food was great and the rooms comfortable. The views exceptional. Highly recommended.

Stayed on way though walking South Downs Way ( and it's a reasonable walk from the SDW). It's a nice pub, decent food and accommodation is better than average for an inn. Views are amazing and staff are polite. I'd recommend it.

After reading earlier reviews a party of 5 of us went mid-week for lunch - 2 ham and 3 beef burgers. It must have been the chefs day off - however the ice cream was good! The views are lovely looking out over the valley.

We were lucky enough to obtain a bargain break for 2 couples through Travelzoo. We had lovely rooms overlooking a superb view and there was plenty of hot water for our roll top bath! We had a lovely 3 course meal in the conservatory and I was impressed that although we had come on an offer, we were not restricted... More

Where to begin! For a start the pub itself is lovely and traditional with great views and is easy to get to from the centre of the village. Mark the landlord really impressed us- there is a man who knows how to provide excellent service! We arrived exhausted and sweaty from our days walking, he welcomed us and gave us... More

We stayed here this week and were amazed by the views and welcome. Deers can be spotted from the balcony. The new owner and waitresses were friendly and attentive. The owner, in particular, wanted to ensure we had a great stay and nothing was too much trouble. We needed an early breakfast as we were working the next day and... More

We stayed last weekend and would seriously recommend this great little place. Dinner was excellent with decent wine so was the breakfast. All fresh local produce (the tomatoes are grown a few yards down the road!) Views from the terrace and the room are fantastic and with the nice spell of weather we are having, if you are booked in...

Walking the SDW as a party of four friends, we were looking for two comfortable rooms for the night. The Sportsman is a reasonably well placed overnight stop in Amberley and so we made our booking there. The exterior of the inn has been modernised, albeit some years ago, which makes it appear rather unexceptional. However, as you cross the... More
