Bustling country local in quiet hamlet with ceasy-going atmosphere, real ales, well liked bar food and seats in pretty back garden
Good Pub Guide Recommended
There's always a cheerful crowd of chatty locals here especially on Wednesday evenings when the bellringers from the church next door pile in. To the right of the door is a small stone-floored area with a couple of tables, a settle, a TV and an open fire. Furniture includes a nice long scrubbed pine table, a couple of sofas and a mix of more ordinary pubby tables and wheelback and mate's chairs on the wood-strip floor; occasional background music, board games and books on shelves. Dark Star American Pale Ale, Harveys Best, and Isfield Flapjack on handpump, farm cider, several malt whiskies and eight wines by the glass. The cottagey and charming back garden has views over the Rother Valley and the summer barbecues and pizzas from the wood-fired oven are extremely popular; a terrace has metal chairs and tiled tables.
Good Pub Guide Food
Food is highly thought-of and includes home-cured gravadlax, chicken liver parfait with chutney, lager-battered fish and chips, spinach, squash and goats cheese pie, burgers with toppings and chips, fresh fish of the day, pork schnitzel with fennel, green bean and olive salad, lemon and thyme chicken with couscous, and puddings such as salted caramel torte and rhubarb bakewell sponge.
