MON – SAT 12 – 9pm

This is where our team of experienced chefs get to unleash their passion.

The board changes daily to reflect the season and the seasonal produce of our suppliers. Our meals are all home cooked and freshly prepared on the premises.

We believe in using quality ingredients and imagination to bring the best, most flavoursome pub food to the table.

All of our meat is free range as are our locally laid eggs.

We have our own hot smoker in the garden (called Sally) so we can produce our own house smoked meats and fish, we are passionate about vegetarian and vegan cooking, we make a mean curry and bake some beautiful desserts.


MON – SAT 12 – 5pm

Everybody loves a sandwich, and who in their right mind doesn’t dream of the perfect buttered baked potato.

These are things we do, and do deliciously well.


SUN 12 – 5pm

For a Sunday think delicious, home-style, traditional Sunday roasts (think lashings of gravy and giant Yorkshire puddings) plus some sandwiches, smaller meals, a full kids menu and a desserts board packed with delicious homemade puddings and local icecream.

Our Sunday roast meats are all free range and locally sourced from Holmansbridge farm, Lewes.

Although the menu is subject to change, we roast four meats as standard (roasted pork loin, free range chicken off the bone, slow braised top rump of beef and roasted leg of salt marsh lamb).

Our meals come with a giant yorkie, herby roast potatoes, honey roasted carrots and parsnips, buttered greens and cheesy cauliflower and leek. We start the day with four different vegetarian roast dinner options, two of which are vegan.

We cook the vegan side dishes separately for maximum freshness.


MON – SAT 12 – 9pm
SUN 12 – 5pm

Our kids menu is served all day, every day. We aim to give the kids what they want… simple, uncomplicated, easy to eat food best served with ketchup.

Thank you all so much for supporting us the last month's and we can't wait to see you all again as soon as possible for some festive fun! ☃️🎄
