A wonderful pub full of history, it was a heaven for smugglers three hundred years ago.
Lovely upstairs room with Latin inscriptions. Before I talk about the food I must say something about the garden, it is splendid on a Summer's day and full of fantastic flowers. You can have lunch outside if you want to.
Their speciality is shoulder of lamb which is so popular you have to order it in advance, it is delicious. The lamb is locally sourced from Sussex and the tenderest I have tasted. I took overseas customers (cattle breeders from Argentina no less) and they were very impressed with the quality of the meat.
In Winter you should try together a table upstairs but if that's not possible downstairs will do. If you're tall be aware of low beams, this is a really old pub.
I'm glad it is out in the sticks so you don't get too many passers by.
