Our menu bursts with locally sourced and seasonal ingredients. Fish, game and traditional English and Mediterranean dishes. There is always something to excite the appetite A simple but elegant decor includes fabulous open fires, with dining offered in a choice of intimate nooks. In good weather alfresco dining on our pretty terrace or in the sheltered garden is idyllic. Small group bookings are easily accommodated in one of several private dining rooms. A connoisseur's wine list complements the menu, including local sparkling wines. Many are served by the glass to help you discover a favourite! A fine selection of Sussex ales is also available.

Excellent place to stay

The Halfway Bridge is an excellent place to stay. We stayed for two nights and had a great meal in the bar as well. The room was well furnished and finished to a good standard. The breakfast choice was better than expected and all round service matched the other excellent features.

We met friends here on a Wednesday evening and it was quite busy. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the food was excellent and well priced. Meals chosen between us: starters - whitebait, salt and pepper squid and devilled kidneys. Main courses - pork belly, risotto, fish and chips, hake and bangers and mash, all were excellent and polished... More

On the last night of a pleasant (yet very tiring!) camping trip with 7 friends, we walked for about 2 miles to this restaurant. All we wanted was a nice, warm meal, and for people to serve us instead of having to slave over a small fire to cook as we had been doing all week. When we arrived, the... More

We have eaten here regularly over the last few years, either as a couple or with friends. There is always a friendly welcome and service is always excellent - friendly, helpful, efficient and professional. We seem however to have gone from always thoroughly enjoying our meals to sometimes questioning the quality (eg on more than one occasion the calves liver... More

We popped in on spec on a busy Saturday evening... Credit to the manager he squeezed us in. One would class the food as very presentable restaurant come pub grub fancying old faves we were not disappointed. Well worth the effort this is certainly somewhere we may revisit.

The Halfway Bridge advertises 'All day breakfast' so 2 friends and I went in at around 8.30am. We were greeted by an extremely unfriendly and, quite frankly 'stroppy' waitress. We said we would like to have breakfast - bearing in mind the restaurant was TOTALLY empty, she said we should have booked, but would check with the chef. She came... More

Good afternoon, Concerned that other readers may come away confused we'd like to mention that we do not offer or advertise, an 'All Day Breakfast' at The Halfway Bridge Inn. We do serve an excellent and enjoyable breakfast to those staying in our rooms. On the restaurant page of our website, near our opening hours, we do highlight that breakfast... More

Atmosphere great. Staff friendly and helpful. Although we only had good tasty English pub grub it was well prepared and presented. As a unpretentious gastro pub it and its young and friendly staff are hard to beat. Only the absence of a wicker gate in the pub garden stops me from rating it as a five star family pub restaurant.

Perfect place for a business meeting which included lunch, the food was excellent as was the service. Because of the awful weather we couldn't eat outside but were given a nice table by a window. It was very busy but not too noisy Will definitely use again next time in the area

It makes a change to stop somewhere 'on spec' and find an excellent welcome, service and good food. Only a couple of miles off a route that we regularly travel and we will certainly return. However, I am told that one really does need to book in advance and I can quite see why.
