Tile-hung village pub with interesting food and a good mix of drinkers and diners; bedrooms

With a bustling atmosphere and a good mix of drinkers and diners, this remains a popular pub with our readers. The beamed bar has a couple of standing timbers, brown squashy sofas, pine tables and chairs on the stone floor and a small woodburning stove in a brick fireplace. Downlands Bramber, Hammerpot Shooting Star and Long Man Best Bitter on handpump are served from the attractive herringbone brick counter, alongside eight wines by the glass plus prosecco, champagne and a local cider. To the right of the bar, the restaurant (with more beams) has an ornamental woodburner in a brick fireplace, a few photographs, chunky pine tables and chairs, a couple of cushioned pews and a shelf of books; steps lead down to an additional dining room; background music and board games. The pub dog is called Chops. The straightforwardly furnished dining conservatory, facing the village green, is light and airy, and there are picnic-sets in the back garden. 1Good quality food includes sandwiches and wraps, hand-potted crab with lemon crème fraîche, duck and chicken liver pâté with sweetcorn relish, beetroot, black bean and chickpea falafel with tzatziki and sweet potato fries, steak in ale pie, persian-style chicken with aubergine and saffron rice and pomegranate and walnut sauce, rainbow trout with wild garlic butter and sauté potatoes, liver and bacon with onion gravy, and puddings such as dark chocolate and marshmallow mousse and treacle and raspberry tart with home-made ice-cream.
