Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Old Dunnings Mill

Attractive and interesting Harvey's pub, particularly at the back where the disused waterwheel can still be seen, although this is now bypassed by the stream. The interior has been partly opened-out to leave quite a narrow bar with a larger dining room behind a wall covered in local history photographs, and a number of further rooms branch off on both sides. Most of the garden seating is located under a large semi-open marquee that is used for beer festivals and other events. With two banks of four handpumps, I found Sussex (£4.10), IPA and Armada on, although the clips for Old annoyingly proved to be a mirage... The only other discordant note comes from the use of unsympathetic LED fairy lights in the counter area, but apart from that this is a pretty decent food-led establishment.

This is an old country pub that Harvey's took over in the late 1980s or early 1990s. It is set on a river at the bottom of a long descent from the town centre. It seems that until recently it was run for Harvey's by a small Sussex pub company but is now a full blown Harvey pub again. It's something of a ramshackle building as it seems to have been added to over the years but is still an attractive looking place. There is a large garden area at the front which you go through to enter a large single room. This has an area of tables and chairs for food at the front and the bar further back with less furniture. There is an enormous fireplace over to the left of the bar. The bar area has polished wooden floorboards with an old rug in the middle. Behind the bar area is a patio and an old water wheel that is visible through a window.
The bar has two sets of four hand pumps selling the same four Harvey's beers, Best, Wild Hop, Olympia and Copperwheat. I tried the Olympia and Copperwheat £3.50) both of which were in excellent condition, the Copperwheat being particularly impressive. I was told that the Best is dearer than these which seems odd as it is weaker.
I thought this was a worthwhile Harvey's pub, perhaps a bit too food orientated but well worth a look.
There is an infrequent bus service right outside the pub which I was glad to make use of to get back to the station.
