Since my last review in February this year, when I remarked on improvements, the management has changed yet again, but to no detriment. Whether for a quiet beer in front of the log fire in the snug, or a large family gathering in the restaurant,...More

Not that I noticed. The back garden is a sort of yard so I suppose children might be able to play there. It's in a very quiet peaceful setting with a green to the front.

The Hollist Arms is at the heart of the picturesque village of Lodsworth, West Sussex. We are a traditional village pub offering local ales, an excellent wine list and simple, high quality food with an emphasis on the best local ingredients. The pub has a bar area that is often busy with village locals, a restaurant, snug, and private dining and function rooms upstairs. Outside there are tables on the tiny village green that are popular with walkers, and behind us a lovely secluded pub garden.
