As described by others, this Georgian town pub has an open plan bar and a bistro-style restaurant downstairs, plus 2 function rooms upstairs next to the lavatories.  The staff were pretty slow to react when we came in, one of them actually ignoring us for several minutes until the one with the brain noticed us.  Clientele were engaged in healthy discussion, and the female barstaff were happy chatting to foreign visitors.  There were 5 craft beers on keg, all overpriced, as were the 4 real ales on the fork-handle handpumps: Tribute, Harvey’s Sussex Best Bitter, Hog’s Back TEA and Timothy Taylor’s Landlord.  The ales were in good condition, especially the Sussex, a nod to a former eponymous Duke. I’d be very happy to come back some time, perhaps for a Slater’s Ginger Tosser, Beerhound’s Archie or a Half-and-Half.

Refurbished in usual gastro style, but retains a good pub feel in the main bar, if perhaps slightly upmarket, with a dedicated restaurant part in the room behind the bar. Seems also to have annexed much of the pavement outside, with tables and large awnings, which is very popular in sunny weather. There is a function room upstairs. A couple of good local ales on offer and condition seemed fine (Cask Marque accredited)

Nice place, been tidied up a bit since I last visited. Four real ales on tap, all priced at £4.00. The wooden benches have been changed to smart tables. Strange sculptures on the wall, supposed to be sewer/drain pipes I think. The real ale handles are garden fork handles (cue the two Ronnie's sketch, Four Candles). They look easier to pull. Anyway, it nice to see that the change hasn't meant that the outside of the pub has to be painted black. It would have lost a lot of character.
