Beautiful garden - tables dotted around spaciously, with nothing matching to give it an air of higgledy piggledy loveliness... benches have sheeps-skins on them to encourage you to stay as long as possible and trees provide patches of shade and the sense of being in the open air - for real (even the occasional authentic bird-poo on the table!).

Excellent dinner in this very charming and most beautifully decorated restaurant in a small country pub near Petworth House. Very friendly service, good menu selection.

We've heard so much about this pub/restaurant that we simply had to try it. It took a couple of weeks to get a booking and so we were really looking forward to it. Was the food outstanding? .... No. It was good though. Was there plenty of choice? .... No. Very limited menu, "Changed twice a day" we were told....but... More

One of those gems that you would not know about unless recommended. Off the beaten track but worth seeking out. Need to book. Very little parking. That is the "down" side. Once found - quirky furnishings. Comfortable tables separated enough from everyone else without feeling isolated. Exceptional service - (attentive and friendly but not invasive). Everything home made from local... More

Book early here, it's very popular, and rightly so, even midweek. More of a restaurant than a pub inside, but small and welcoming bar area nevertheless. Nice outside garden for pub lunch We enjoyed a friendly welcome, attentive but not intrusive service, and good locally sourced food. Limited wine by the glass, but good selections including a local Pinot Gris.... More

Booked this for an anniversary on a Sunday evening in late May. Found menu very limited. Starters were o.k. though rather expensive for what you had. Ordered two of their 35 day matured sirloin steaks as medium for £20 each, came with chips and some green salad leaves. The steaks arrived very burnt on the outside, looked like they had... More

Great time here, buzzy and full. Shared cod tongue and razor clams to start a hit with all. Then I went for for ribeye and it was very good worth having the onion and horseradish dip, chips were ok had better, managed a taste of the pigeon interesting, but the Bouillabaisse looked the winner. Service little slow, ( they were... More

A gem of a pub--especially when outside in the sunshine-- The starters are imaginative,the main courses, particularly the steaks and pies are fab-- Personally I would make more home made puddings like jam rolly poly,Eaton mess and spotted dick,and use a local ice cream maker like-- Seriously Real from Pulborough Overall fab-- better than all the fast food London pubs,...
