Based on reviews we picked the Elsted Inn as a ‘halfway house’ to meet some old friends from Hampshire. Perhaps we were unlucky, but none of us felt particularly satisfied after our visit. On a Friday lunchtime we were the only four people in the...More

Description
Welcoming, family-friendly and dog-friendly pub. We have a lovely relaxed, award winning restaurant that seats aprox 26 for lunch or dinner. We also cater for groups (e.g. walkers and cyclists enjoying the beautiful South Downs National Park nearby). We use locally sourced produce and make as much as possible from scratch - as such the menus are smaller than some restaurants, but everything is freshly prepared, made to order, changes frequently, and can accommodate various dietary requirements. Booking recommended to avoid disappointment.
