Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Perfect pub rooms and lovely service
The team were so helpful with accommodating a late check in - they called when it got late and stayed up to get me in to my room. Check out didn't require going into the pub, so was super easy, but I didn't have chance to thank them for such a lovely stay.

Such a cute little room, which was perfect for our family. We even chatted to the owners in the morning who were super friendly with our children playing with their dogs. The pub was beautifully decorated and we were actually disappointed we couldn’t have stayed on a Sunday afternoon for lunch… would highly recommend and reasonably priced compared to everyone else’s extortionate rates.

Great overnight stop for Ardingly
Great place to stay if you are planning to go to the Antique Fair at Ardingly. We stayed in The Stables, which is slightly bigger than the other rooms. Super comfy. Clean. Staff very welcoming and helpful. Nice touches even in Covid. A little breakfast hamper is left in the room, and although simple is perfectly adequate. Food definitely above the pub norm.
