The pub

The present landlords, Andy and Linda Brooks, have been at the pub since 2001 and, despite huge changes in the industry since then, have remained true to their principles of retaining it as an individual village pub, know much for its good quality home-made food.


The pub has undergone a few physical changes under their stewardship - in 2002 a children's play area was part of improvements to the garden. In 2007 the interior was extended, disabled access and a new toilet block were provided, and in 2013 there was a further interior and exterior makeover, providing improved seating and lighting.

Our beers

We now sell six real ales - three of them from local independent brewers such as Burning Sky (Firle), Long Man (Wilmington) and Gun Brewery (Gun Hill), and three of them are nationally available ales.

We also now have two real ciders on tap, in addition to craft lagers and fine keg ciders such as Aspall.


We are well known for our no-nonsense home-made food such as proper shortcrust pastry pies, locally sourced seasonal meat, fish and produce, and a selection of regularly changing meals alongside sandwiches and burgers.

We have a menu that changes on a daily basis that is served lunchtimes and evenings from Monday to Friday, all day on a Saturday, and lunchtime on a Sunday. Our food service times can be found below.

Coronavirus update: We are open as normal for food on Tuesday 17th and Wednesday 18th March at lunchtimes, but the kitchen will be closed in the evening. The pub will be open all day for Bar service.
