Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Half Moon Inn

Very food-led country pub, located right at the foot of the South Downs, with an attractively refurbished semi-traditional multi-room interior. Further wooden bench seating can also be found outside under cover of a marquee. Three real ales and a cider available from the five handpumps: the ubiquitous Harvey's, Gun Project Babylonia Pale, Far Fetched from Hairy Dog (£4.00) and Rosie's Pig.

Will Larter left this review about The Half Moon Inn

A pleasant roadside pub which seems to have retained much of it original internal layout. The bar is to the right in a second room, and has five hand pumps, two with real ciders advertised. The three real ales were all from local breweries: I made the mistake of going for the product of an unknown brewery called Holler with the words "juicy pale" on the pump clip. I ought to have guessed that the juice they were aiming for was grapefruit and pineapple. Should have gone for the Harveys or the Dark Star. Unusually, the background music here was classical, which I discovered is good for soothing the breasts of those who are drinking beer that is not to their taste.
