300-year-old inn with beams, panelling and open fires in rambling rooms, excellent food and charming garden; cottagey bedrooms

Particularly well run and highly enjoyable, this 18th-c inn remains on top form. The neatly kept, beamed front bar has a gently civilised atmosphere, country furniture on bare boards, a chesterfield in one corner and a fine view beyond the village to the Rother Valley from a seat in the big panelled bow window. High bar chairs line the counter where friendly, efficient staff serve 360 Degrees Best and Firebird Two Horses on handpump, 17 wines by the glass, home-made liqueurs and cordials and local farm juices. Other rambling beamed rooms have similar furniture on brick floors, rugs and original panelling and there are fresh flowers throughout; background music and board games. When the weather is fine the leafy, sheltered garden has picnic-sets, day beds, deckchairs and even a hammock, and there's also a charming terrace. Cosy country bedrooms are comfortable and breakfasts are good. Constable and Turner both painted the medieval church with its unusual spire; Petworth mansion and park (National Trust) is nearby.
