We travelled 30 miles to go back to The Sportsman as a treat. We were last here in 2009, eve of marriage ar Amberley Castle. Food fantastic, piping hot, generous portions and backed up by great service. We had steak but every dish brought out to other tables looked like a food lovers' dream. Beer excellent :if you're a real... More

This is on the edge of the village, and there are nice views in both directions, either over fields or towards the South Downs. Our room was one of the smaller ones, but it was nicely presented and comfortable. There was a good choice of food for both morning and evening meals, and it was ideally situated for our walking...

My husband tends to phone ahead and when we arrive the staff are ever so accomodating and tend to have a little menu just for me ready. There are always three choices.. And i have... More

We had a Travelzoo voucher and went with friends. Sometimes these deals are not that great but this one was superb. The landlord was very welcoming and everything on the menu and specials board was included. The food and service were great. The place was buzzing and it is obvious that this pub is now a hit with the locals... More

Really good food very relaxed atmosphere and it won't break your bank. This is a relaxed bar resturant with food well above average great beer and a good wine list. It's not posh, a mish mash of oak tables and chairs you could easily spend all night chatting over dinner. The menu is good and the chef really knows what... More

Very friendly staff who made us feel welcome from the minute we arrived. Our room overlooked a fabulous view of the countryside and deer. We had a delicious dinner in the dining room with a blazing open fire and a lovely breakfast in the conservatory where there are binoculars for you to use to spot wildlife. I would recommend The...
