Steve C left this review about The Hampden Arms

The Hampden Arms is a bit of a trek of the main drag so is mainly used by residents of the local area. A couple of picnic benches flank the entrance where opening times of midday until 23:00 (23:30 Fri/Sat) are given. The L shaped interior consists of seating, a large plasma screen and a dartboard to the right and more seating, another dartboard and the local Sussex Toad-in-the-Hole game to the left. At the rear is a room with a pool table. The food is priced under £10 and is available at certain times, but not during my visit on Wednesday night last week when the monthly quiz was in progress. Whilst at the bar I noted that live music is hosted every Friday evening. An advertised beer garden can be found at the rear, but I did not investigate on this occasion due to my late visit.
The usual suspect keg products are available and I counted three hand pumps. One was unused so the cask ale options were Harvey’s Best and Mordie Brewery’s Northumberland Blonde.
I found the service to be friendly and the locals all seemed harmless enough. This pub’s location dictates that I will not be revisiting anytime soon, but if I do find myself in the area I will make the effort to pop in for a pint.
