The good pub guide review

Muddy dogs and children are welcome at this relaxed pub in the South Downs National Park. The light and prettily decorated bar has dining chairs around wood-topped tables on parquet flooring, a dresser with country knick-knacks, paintings on cream-painted walls above a grey-planked dado and stone bottles and books. The charming, heavily beamed restaurant has high-backed tartan chairs and pale settles on more floorboards, books on shelves and a huge wall clock; background music and board games. In cold weather, three open fires keep the pub warm. There's a beer named for the pub (from Otter) and guests from local breweries such as Arundel, Goldmark and Urban Island on handpump, plus four local craft beers and two artisan lagers. You can also enjoy 13 wines by the glass, over 40 gins and two cocktails on tap ' passion-fruit martini and espresso martini. The large garden has picnic-sets on grass and seats and tables under a gazebo. Easy disabled access. If you want to work up an appetite before a visit, there are some lovely walks and cycle routes nearby in Eartham Wood and along the South Downs Way and an interesting section of Stane Street (the Roman road connecting Chichester to London).

The good pub guide food review
