We were given room 2 which was a lovely sized room & en-suite bathroom overlooking amazing scenery. Beautiful village and fab location. However, there were dead flies and a woodlouse on the windowsill of our room (& also dead flies along the conservatory window sills.) One of the cushions on the bed was badly stained and the standard lamp and... More

I'd like to keep this a secret so that they always have a table for me in the conservatory. Wonderful views, with thoughtfully provided binoculars. Had a lovely Sunday birthday lunch celebration, food was very good with everyone being very happy with their choice, if you like sweet puds you can 't go wrong with the sticky toffee date pudding....

We stayed in room one with double bunk beds, very romantic. Room ok but cluttered, nowhere to put things and felt rather like a yha setup. Could not fault the bar and the food, very well done indeed and reasonably priced. Breakfast was a little limited on the cereal and fruit juice front and service slow. Our main concern was... More

Charming liitle hotel. Asked for twin room, they only had a family room which they gave to us. Lovely room with a gorgeous traditional bathroom, overall decor in room very tasteful. View from the room and restaurant stunning, across fields as the sun went down. Lucky to get a bargain break, would love to go again.

Can't fault this place, visited with family and although it was a Saturday we still sat right by the window in the sun room, with good views over the Amberley floodplains. Service was efficient and everybody's food was superb.

Have not stayed here but having recently got married not far from the sportsman we visited on a number of occasions to have a meal. Only once was we slightly dissapointed, this was once out of more than 10 visits, food is lovely and staff do a good job even though it is always busy.

Booked a night at this inn via Booking.com. When we arrived the manager said that they had no record of the booking and blamed Booking.com. Meanwhile Booking.com blamed the staff at the inn.The result was that we ended up without a room. My advice would be to contact the pub directly to confirm your booking.

Good pub with very acceptable accommodation and food. Very friendly, helpful staff. Special mention for Michelle, the assistant manager, who was incredibly helpful assisting us to resolve our problem of lost car keys.We'd definitely stay here again.
