The good pub guide review

Perched at the foot of the stunning South Downs, this whitewashed country inn does a fine job of satisfying both drinkers and diners. The bar area has a relaxed atmosphere, leather armchairs in front of a woodburning stove and daily papers on the light oak counter where friendly staff serve Tipsy Horse (brewed for the pub by Ringwood), Youngs Original, Dark Star Hophead and Marstons 61 Deep on handpump and 18 wines by the glass from a carefully curated list. Just off here, a room with leather button-back wall seats and mate's and other dark wooden dining chairs has all sorts of country knick-knacks: stuffed animals, china plates, riding boots, flower paintings, dog drawings, stone bottles and books on shelves. The dining room to the other side of the bar has a huge painting of a galloping white horse, a long suede wall banquette, high-backed settles creating stalls, elegant chairs, lots of mirrors and big metal chandeliers. Throughout, there are fat candles in lanterns, flagstones and coir carpet, beams and timbering, and animal skin throws; background music and board games. A two-level terrace has dark grey rattan-style seats around glass-topped tables under parasols among pretty flowering tubs; an area up steps has rustic benches and tables and there are picnic-sets on grass at the front. Each of the 15 comfortable, contemporary and light bedrooms has a little private courtyard (two have a hot tub). Good surrounding walks.
