Best Pub in Ditchling

Our 500-year-old pub is set in the very heart of Ditchling –  a picture-postcard chocolate box village with impressive South Downs views and rustic charm by the bucket-load. The epitome of a Sussex country inn, we have six hideaway bedrooms, which are spot-on for weekend breaks, and for those who want to be close to Brighton (without all the hustle-and-bustle)

Our bar is full-to-the-rafters with friendly locals, and you’re always guaranteed a chin-wag. With local ales (yes – we proudly serve Harvey’s) cool craft-y beers, regularly changing cocktails, and some cork-poppingly good wines from around the world.

You’re going to love our food too. Head Chef Henri cooks up a storm in the kitchen, and loves whipping up piled-high-plates of comfort food. From your favourite pub classics – such as crispy fish & chips, hearty pies, and banging bangers & mash – to our specials, showcasing local produce. Oh, and our Sunday roast is blooming lovely too (if we do say so ourselves)

Phil & the team can’t wait to welcome you to our oh-so-cosy, olde-worlde pub.


Reasons to Roast

Sunday roast-ing is a big part of British culture and there’s lots to love about it.

Is it is the not-so-humble crumble? Bottomless gravy? As many Yorkshire puds as you can handle?

We’ve managed to jot down just five of our top reasons for you to tuck-into an all-guns-blazing roast this Sunday.
