Great food with generous portions. Can only say good things about the food. The Chef Patron needs support so that now he has bought the Pub, can afford to refurbish the place. The Decor and exterior is definitely scruffy which will hopefully be addressed in time. If you go there on a sunny day and sit on the deck or... More

Had a great 1 night stay with our dog on a voucher deal; food was excellent! The room was lovely, on the ground floor, albeit a little chilly. Clean, nicely equipped, amazing views Large bathroom, roll top bath, shower hand held only. Breakfast freshly cooked, would suggest it would be better if they had a menu - we were offered... More

Came for a drink and a snack over the weekend and it was lovely. Good food and polite service. Beer is also very well kept if you like ale as it should be served. Great views as well. I am saddened to read the last but one review where a very foolish and apparently stupid man decided to turn up... More

A wonderful pub just on the edge of Amberley, with the most terrific views over the plains, and a sun terrace to enjoy them from. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and we enjoyed our meal there too. The room was quite pleasant, and we slept well. We skipped breakfast for an early start, but sure it would have... More

Incredible location and views. However, no concept of how to treat customers. Avoid at all costs. Wish we had... Feel sorry for the staff. They were cringing... and hugely embarrassed. Oh well, at least there's good news; great pubs just down the road...

Management response:

My staff brought this to my attention quoting the rude man that came in an hour before we were open has written something quite unfair and I have to say I whole heartedly agree. Customers that have been here often and those just passing will agree that my manor is really very hospitable and more than welcoming into my pub,... More

On Monday evening my husband and I decided to go out for a meal and visited the Sportsman where we have dined many times before. It was packed but they were really friendly and found us a table in the conservatory which is the best position as it overlooks the wonderful country view of fields stretching for miles and at...

We stayed overnight. Enjoyed dinner in the restaurant with excellent views for miles across the Arun valley. Good original menu choices which did include some pub staples for the less adventurous. Food arrived piping hot and well prepared. Staff friendly and attentive. Had our room been totally up to scratch I would have given a 5 star rating : Whilst... More

The staff are nice and welcoming. I would give this pub a 5💫. The food is awesome and delicious. I love this pub. Lots of lovely walks. Beautiful views and lovely scenery. Very good selection of food at very reasonable prices. The best food I have had there is the roast beef and burger and fish.

We bought a 3 course menu voucher for here without knowing much about it. The views were an amazing discovery and had us gazing just from the car park! Usually with vouchers you are offered an alternative-smaller-portioned menu. Not here. I had scallops with black pudding to start followed by the biggest piece of pork belly I'd ever had. We...

No Sussex. We stayed for one night while cycling the South Downs way. A nice sized room clean and well laid out with a comfy bed. The view from our room was stunning overlooking the Arun plane. Our hosts welcomed us and showed us the rooms and were very accommodating about storing our bikes in the barn. We ate in... More
