Good Hotel Guide Review
Traditional pub values attract locals, ramblers and overnighters to this dog- and family-friendly 16th-century inn, in a peaceful South Downs village close to the National Trust’s Uppark House. There’s character in the beams and log fires of the wood- and flagstone-floored bar, a setting that’s just right for the range of restorative ales, wines and spirits; in the walled garden, picnic tables and parasols await clement weather. Wraps and baguette sandwiches make light lunches; heartier fare, on frequently changing menus, might include ham, egg and chips or more modern cep gnocchi, artichokes, wild mushrooms. Well-refurbished bedrooms have simple country charm in their exposed timbers, plaids and patterns.
