I was delighted to see this place is still a ten o' clock pub as I walked through the door just after Beer O' Clock. Back in older K & B days this was a very basic place with toilets in the outside yard. K & B upgraded it more than Badger have but it remains a fairly basic drinkers pub. I looked for a TV but couldn't actually see one and would be more than happy if there wasn't one. A big plus point was that their sound system was tuned to Planet Rock.
I'd never noticed the window through to the cellar before but there is now a display of around 8 old K & B pump clips with the only one I don't recall ever trying being their Xmas Ale.
The biggest change here since my visit over four years ago was the presence of three Welton beers on the front three pumps. The rear two had the Badger Sussex and Tanglefoot. The three Welton beers were Horsham Pale, Heatwave and Spinnaker IPA. I had a pint of Sussex (£3.80) for old times sake and then tried the Welton Heatwave and Spinnaker (£4.10). These were a revelation as like the Sussex they were in immaculate condition but the Heatwave was a superb New World hop pale and the Spinnaker more of a Golden Ale but still with a very good hop flavour.
Before K & B sold out to Badger this was my favourite Horsham pub and it gives me great pleasure seeing it restored to that position. Score upped from 8 to 9.



Visit July 2014
In the days of going on the annual Ale Trail bash at K&B brewery this was always the favoured starting point and not just because it opened at 10:00.
I have to give credit to Badger for not ruining the place, it was much as I remembered it from the final K&B days. This was also my first ever taste of the Badger Sussex Bitter (£3.30) and I was pleased to note that it was coming up in immaculate condition. To be fair to Hall & Woodhouse it is a reasonable approximation of what the old K&B beer was like, it certainly has a lot more authenticity than Greene King Ruddles County or Old Speckled Hen. Two other beers were on offer, Tanglefoot and a Badger seasonal called Hopeful Hop. Overall I liked it here on my morning visit and came away with a great sense of relief that the pub was intact and that the Sussex Bitter was better than I expected it to be.

I visited Ye Old Stout House not long before lunch last Saturday morning to find ten locals propping up the bar. This bar supports five hand pumps that, due to this being a Hall and Woodhouse establishment, were drawing King and Barnes Sussex (x2), Badger’s Leaping legend (x2) and H&W’s Tangle Foot. A standard keg selection was also available from the very amiable governor.
The bare boarded front section of the pub houses a bar billiards table and a television that was switched off. I didn’t see any live sport advertised, but there was a radio playing a local station, complete with adverts. The carpeted rear section of the pub continues the traditional décor and adds more seating. A right hand door leads to the side alley where a couple of tables and the smokers could be found.

This is a drinker’s pub and as such I enjoyed talking to a couple of locals during my visit on Saturday last week. Next time I am in the area I will probably pop in again, but probably not at 10am when the doors are said to open.

This is a very attractive looking old pub which still defiantly displays the former King and Barnes logo outside. Hall & Woodhouse though naturally these days, the usual Sussex, Badger and Tanglefoot were on plus a curious seasonal beer called Billy Stinger which apparently includes nettles in the brew. I tried it, very much like any other H&W beer really.
A friendly place though, I liked it quite a lot, a low beamed ceiling with a few brasses, the central bar area has an old stone flagged floor, the front is boarded and the rear section carpeted. Wood panelling here and there, lots of stuff of interest not least the see through leaded window to the "cellar" with the casks on view, a case of clay pipes, framed pictures of Lords Cricket Ground, motor racing in the 50s at Crystal Palace, the old K&B brewery, bottles and stone jars on a high shelf. The front area has a bar billiards table. A shelf contains second hand books to be swapped or taken for a small donation. Seating is of the traditional style mostly at small round tables, there is a TV, this was off, radio 2 played with Tony Blackburn on! Some outdoor seating to the rear side but not popular on a very wet BH Monday. I liked this pub a lot, I'd certainly be back if in Horsham again despite the rather dull H&W beers.
