“Lovely meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

We ate here yesterday. Although they were very busy the service was great. The staff explained there was a wait for food, which was no problem for us as we've eaten there before and know it was worth the wait! We had the halibut and a pie which were both delicious. Look forward too our next meal there and too see the refurbishment!!

“Don't go there...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

....unless you want to wait over an hour for food - which is unpalatable. Really not worth the trip.

Only one chef - ovens not working. Three of us ordered Halibut....each got a completely different fish (no idea what sort). Ideal for replacement shoe soles (no pun intended) but not for eating.

“Greasy experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

The pub was virtually empty when we went in which should have alerted us. The food was awful. Very greasy fish and chips (should have been called batter and chips). Looked surprised when ketchup was requested. Fish was tasteless and minute. Dirty menus. Wrote in capitals on bill that service wasn`t included (!) There are so many better pubs to eat in West Sussex than this.
Don`t bother.

“Lunchtime Desserts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

An old favourite pub, but been a while since we have visited.
Good menu, but we only had desserts and coffees, which were very good.
Friendly service.
Will return another time to try the main courses.

“Lovely country pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

This was the perfect venue for a small and intimate wedding party which I attended. The pub is delightful; low ceilings, lots of memorabilia on the walls, great food. We spent a good portion of the evening in the garden at the back where there is plenty of seating and it's a peaceful setting for a relaxed party.

I've eaten here a few times previously in the winter time and it's equally enjoyable for a winter Sunday lunch.
