5/5 Excellent

Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
There was a warm welcome from the staff and the room was also warm and cosy. The pub is on the edge of the South Downs National Park in beautiful countryside but unfortunately it was wet during our stay so we did not see the full beauty of the surroundings. The pub itself is cosy and had an open fires at one end and a wood burner at the other. The bar itself is quite small but there is a spacious dining room as well. The bedrooms are at the rear/side and are accessed through a smal courtyard which I imagine would be busy on a warm summer night. This is nicely furnished and also had a cosy booth to one side with the car park accessed from the rear. There were four rooms available but I think we were the only guests staying. Our room was clean and recently decorated to a high standard with modern bathroom facilities en suite. The bed was comfortable and the area quiet at night. The staff were friendly and helpful throughout with local recommendations for places to visit. We ate in the pub for dinner and breakfast and the food was good and plentiful. We would definitely recommend.
