First visit and it won't be the last.Buzzy restaurant with a superb menu and great service.Not easy to find and off the beaten track but really worth the effort.We went on a Wednesday lunch time and it was fully booked-that tells you everything!

This pub has improved immeasurably in the last couple of years. The food is good by any standards, we've always liked the atmosphere and the setting is hard to beat. But prices are pretty steep now, there are too many add-ons and too much "up-selling" by the staff has you wondering if they are on some sort of commission system. For example, the steak comes with a choice of sauces, each one costs £1 for a tiny amount. The olives, £3.50 for a really rather small bowl. Bread, £1 per slice. This may sound petty, but for a family meal you end up with a considerable sum of extras that makes you gulp. Don't want to put you off....just be aware...

Went with nine adults and four children for a special family lunch and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. (booked that morning so they had chane to set up a table)

Service was impeccable, genuinely friendly and helpful without being unprofessional.

Food was delicious, love to see a restaurant genuinely committed to local and seasonal food. Nice to have a good child's selection without losing what the place is about. Got home made fudge complimentary with our coffee, very nice touch.

Thank you for a lovely family lunch.

We live in a part of the world with excellent pubs so to find another tp match would have been difficult. The Horse Guards proved to be amongst the best,service and food top rate and although slightly on the expensive side good value for money.It was very busy on a thursday and parking can be a problem but dertainly worth the effort-and only 100 yards or so off the busy A272 AND NO NOISE!

Food, Out of this world! garden is WOW. chickens and cats and all. . just a WOW if you want to take yourself your partner or kids of all of them. family and all. this is just such a lovely friendly place to visit. but make sure you book to avoid disappointment. the only place i know in sussex with snails on the menu which even my partner who said NO NO and NO again to them tasted them and loved them lots ;) this is just the best pub i have come across in Sussex and we will use it more and more often. food that fills your boots and home made produce should you want to take it away. ..

We Love this pub, its garden and its lovely cloudy Cider.
