A steady stream of visitors & locals wend their way to this archetypal English country pub not too far from East Grinstead, drawn by its off-the-beaten-track location, rustic simplicity & locally sourced food. Light, bright colours add some zing to the interior, while the pretty garden may beckon on fine days. The regularly changing, chalked-up menu could point you in the direction of scallops on a saffron pilaf with pea purée or Stilton & walnut tart with port mayonnaise before chicken & leek pie, venison sausages & mash or local pheasant with bubble & squeak. The noteworthy cheeseboard runs to a baker’s dozen, while the sweet-toothed might veer towards the likes of raspberry tart or bread & butter pudding. A staunch wine list & pleasing service are also worth a mention.
