Our Sunday roast lunch was disappointing. The beef was tough and largely inedible and the gravy was congealed. My husband had the beef and the same beef gravy was used to compliment my pork. The fresh vegetables were cooked but seemed reheated. The staff were...More

Stopped in here for Sunday lunch as was in the area, the food tasted nice but was very pretentious. Rather small portions for the price they were charging for them. The staff were happy and attentive but sorry we will definitely look for somewhere else...More

Attractive old pub which I had often passed when driving between Petworth and Midhurst. Had a chance, one recent midweek evening, to call in for a meal. I hadn't realised that what I could see from the A272 was actually the rear of the establishment....More

I have to mention the rhubarb and crumble rice pudding I had earlier this year. It was just delicious. For someone who is very over-addicted to a good pudding, it was heaven. I can't even remember the rest of the meal it was so good....More

Couldn't fault the food and service. Menu was good, not overlong and offering some interesting dishes, which came up to expectation. There was also a decent interval before our dishes were served, so a good sign that they were freshly cooked. What made us laugh...More

Excellent service and food. I had the guinea fowl and my mother the steak - both were tasty, good portions and I'd say good value. Waiting/bar staff very friendly and helpful. Could not fault it - will try to get back!

Our menu bursts with locally sourced and seasonal ingredients. Fish, game and traditional English and Mediterranean dishes. There is always something to excite the appetite A simple but elegant decor includes fabulous open fires, with dining offered in a choice of intimate nooks. In good weather alfresco dining on our pretty terrace or in the sheltered garden is idyllic. Small group bookings are easily accommodated in one of several private dining rooms. A connoisseur's wine list complements the menu, including local sparkling wines. Many are served by the glass to help you discover a favourite! A fine selection of Sussex ales is also available.
