It seemed newly refurbished with good, helpful, courteous, staff and a good choice of well cooked dishes. Our wine and beer was good too. The menu is a cut above typical pub food and so it is not cheap but it is reasonable value. Gluten free was not a problem. Worth a visit! There is no carpark.

We enjoyed great cooking this evening - creamy green asparagus and samphire risotto, crisp pork belly, beautifully cooked duck among many others. Staff kindly turned the music down for the benefit of my hard-of-hearing mum, and on a Saturday night. Service not rushed, not slow. The Dukka, bread & olive oil was top-notch as a nibble with drinks. Fab chocolate... More

Yes, I enjoyed my first visit here on a great summers day. However......the pub has no car park and I had to parl 100yds up the road! Friendly staff. Good beer and lagers. Food was very good but overpriced for pub food. A decent Sunday roast but too expensive at £15. The beef roast had run out too. The pork... More

Used to drink in this pub when it was just a neighbourhood local. it is now a gastropub, which was a little off-putting but the food was out of this world. Great taste and excellent, if not a little over-zealous, service. Not cheap but will definitely return. Particularly liked the thick chips, steak and bread

Saturday lunch with a friend. Fabulous menu, good reasonably priced wine list. Really friendly staff. The Barbary duck with fig jus was cooked to perfection. Great cheeseboard (pick any 4 from 8). We shared as I would defy anyone to finish one after starter & main. There is a nice beer garden for warmer weather. Staff also happy to call... More

Situated at the end of an unassuming suburban road in a village in West Sussex is this little gem. We went to this restaurant with colleagues from work last night and had a great meal.

Excellent food expensive for 'pub grub' but this is no basic 'pub grub' so good value for money which gets better with the friendly service. At first i thought of giving a score of 4 because of the limited parking but then realised i would willing walk there or get a taxi. A real pleasure to find a great place... More
