A group of six, we had lunch and were welcomed warmly by the staff who were attentive throughout. All our food was attractively served, tasty and served on hot plates, which is often overlooked by some restaurants.

We were greeted with a warm welcome and a private drink. Great service and wonderful rooms but best of all the Most amazing food. You will find more of a restaurant feel than pub but well worth a visit.

We met friends here for lunch. A really excellent menu and winelist and nice service. I need to go back for dinner to enjoy the full ambience. Good for visiting Mindhurst or walking on the South Downs.
