An accidental find

One of our passengers felt car sick so we headed off track to the nearest pub! A great find! Sandwiches that were brilliant, I have never had a better BLT. great selection of Ales, Magic service from "Ally" (spelling?) I suspect the pub meals would be brilliant based on the quality of the sandwiches

We were staying nearby, we'd just arrived and this was the closest pub. It was Good Friday and happened also to be my partner's birthday - Wow was our luck in! A fantastic traditional pub serving really tasty food and some excellent beers, it is not a gastro pub catering only for diners but a meeting place for the local... More

This was the first visit I made to this pub having been recommended it by family who have recently moved into the area. I ordered a hot burger with onion rings and chips and it did not disappoint!!! The burger meat was delicious and the toppings were hot but not too hot. The chips were great too. Good choices of... More

I don't want this to be too good a write up as it will become too popular. A well kept secret in Sussex however needs to be broadcast, so here it is. Need I say anymore? Great ales, great food and warm log fire as well as a warm welcome. Dogs and well behaved children are welcome. Will definitely return... More

A banquet had by all. We had a fabulous meal that included beef and pork ribs and a game trio roast. The ribs were huge and delicious and the game roast included pheasant that was amazing.

I have been to the White Lion and have never had a bad meal, the last time I went with 2 ex stewardess friends, one was fairly fussy but everything she asked for was produced no problem, a warm welcome and a warm ambiance a traditional old pub with a very good chef, not expensive. A wander around the village... More

We walked here from Abingworth Hall. Not sure what we would find. We found a pub with great beer, and what we would call "bar-B-que". I had the "Jacob's Ladder", a plate of the tastiest ribs ever! Felt like it was a real local, in a tiny town, which I guess it was. Whoever is the chef, has a lot... More

The white lion is a very quaint pub that is very out of the way. Staff are friendly, service is ok, the food we had here was very good with generous portion size and prices were about average. It's definitely a pub with a loyal locals following which can lead the less outgoing people to feel a bit intimidated but... More

We went for an evening meal, and the Pub was busy, which meant long waits for service as there were only two bar staff, who were very slow and seemed in a muddle. There is an extensive menu to choose from, which suggests that the food cannot be prepared there fresh, I have often seen a Breaks van delivering. I... More
