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.

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
