Good Hotel Guide Review
A 19th-century resting place for the Household Cavalry as its soldiers made their way to Portsmouth, this 350-year-old inn remains a relaxing refuge for today’s travellers. It stands opposite the church of a quintessentially English village overlooking the rolling South Downs. Restored and refreshed, the rambling interior has crooked oak beams, stripped floorboards and a trove of eye-catching curiosities. A short daily-changing menu, well in tune with the seasons and the serendipitous availability of foraged wild foods, is served in the restaurant, along with home-made sloe gin, farm fruit juices, real ales and an eclectic wine list. On a sunny day, retreat to the ‘hidden’ garden strewn with hammocks, deckchairs and straw-bale seats. The bedrooms are stylishly simple: pretty florals add country charm.
