Rather oddly painted in two shades of green, but I didn't let that put me off. I had taken a wrong turning, due to recent road improvements having made my map out of date, and thought I could combine a swift half of Harveys Sussex Best with checking directions to Ditchling, Plumpton and Lewes. I was successful with both endeavours, though the bitter was nearly as old as my map and only more drinkable by a narrow margin. I didn't complain, because the only other pump clip in sight on the bar was for Old Rosie cider.

I don't know how long this has been a Harvey's pub but my ancient Sussex Beer guide shows it as a Bass Charrington pub selling just the dull Charringtons IPA.
Although it's only a short distance from the main High Street this seems to be the only pub in the vicinity. It's a corner pub with a decked patio at the front. Inside it's a single room with a fairly large island bar. There is a pool table on the immediate left. The three TVs I counted were all off plus a big screen in the rear of the pub. Also at the rear is a collection of football shirts in glass cases.
Although I spotted seven hand pumps just Harvey's Best & a house Heath Ale and Old Rosie cider were all that are available. They claim that the Heath Ale is brewed specifically for the pub. I had a pint of Best (£3.60) and Heath Ale (£3.85) both of which were in very good condition. I don't drink Harvey's beers often enough to tell if the Heath Ale is re-branded Armada but they are the same ABV.
On an early Tuesday afternoon with few in and all the TVs off I found it a pleasant enough place but may not feel the same about it with major sporting event(s) being shown. On the plus side it is a Harvey's pub and the barmaid was friendly.
