They had four ales on in here – Skinner’s Betty Stogs; Timothy Taylor Golden Best; Cotleigh Long-Eared Owl; and Belleville Northcote Blonde (£1.85 a half). I didn’t see a menu, but as the tables at the back and to the right of the bar counter are all laid for diners they surely must do food. The mass of pump clips on the wall also indicate a changing real ale policy.

Judging by the trademark green-banded glazing in the windows, this must once have been a Charrington’s pub. The wood panelling on the walls looks original as well. The front, bar area, is furnished with a couple of very distressed leather armchairs, some basic but very functional plain wooden tables, with a mix of normal chairs and small round stools. It’s bare-boarded of course, like so many pubs now that are hoping to attract a younger crowd. There’s a central island bar now, with a small stillion in the centre bearing spirits and mixers, as well as a coffee machine of course. The ales, with their ABVs were listed on a chalkboard, and unsurprisingly another chalkboard had the wine list.

When I was in on a warm and sunny early Wednesday evening there was a lively, youngish crowd in, mainly occupying the benches at the front of the pub. I reckon this pub has something for everyone - real ale, wine, food, mix of furnishings, etc. I didn’t see any of those tall tables though, which must be a good thing. I’d happily revisit this pub.

Bright modern interior. Sells real ale. Staff are very quick to take your order and are friendly. Outside seating area. Has Harveys Sussex best bitter on tap.
