I wish it were possible to award 3.5 on this review, as the venue was a little better than average, but not so much so as to rate as "very good".
Located just a few yards off the busy A27, this pub is easy to find. The first impression is that the pub is a converted detached house. The staff are friendly and welcoming. There is a good selection of cask ales and wines.
The menu is not extensive and is written on chalkboards on the wall. You then order at the bar.
The food was a little bit of a let down. The beef and fish were okay, but nothing special. The vegetables were overcooked and flavourless, and the Yorkshire pudding that came with my roast beef was burnt. I also had to ask for cutlery and some more gravy, which was readily supplied.
The pub seems to be popular with new-age hippies, I suppose because of the proximity to the 'Long Man of Wilmington'.
They also allow dogs into the restaurant. After our starters had been delivered, three people with dogs came and sat in the restaurant to eat. I am not a fan of allowing dogs (or other animals) into restaurants, and had I known this beforehand, would have eaten elsewhere.
One nice touch was the wooden puzzles on each table. Very frustrating!
Four starters, five mains, three desserts, one pint of Guinness, a Malibu and pineapple and a J2O came to £119, which seemed a tad expensive for what and where it was.
