Our View

The South Downs look glorious from the beer garden, where children can play safely, and mums and dads can admire the raised vegetable seed-bed while relaxing with a drink. Inside, walls and beams are painted in beige and oatmeal, a gentle contrast perhaps to the golden colour of a pint of Bedlam, the real ale brewed up nearby Shaves Wood Lane. Local beef from Redlands Farm may be on the menu, specifically a fillet with spicy charred tomato ketchup, spinach wild mushroom jus and duck fat chips. Another possibility is wild brill with mushroom purée, lemon and herb gnocchi, Jerusalem artichoke fondants and truffle velouté.

About The area

Discover West Sussex

Divided from East Sussex back in 1888, West Sussex is so typically English that to walk through its landscape will feel like a walk through the whole country. Within its boundaries lies a wide variety of landscape and coastal scenery, but it is the spacious and open South Downs with which the county is most closely associated.

In terms of walking, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Studying the map reveals a multitude of routes – many of them to be found within the boundaries of the South Downs National Park – and an assortment of scenic long-distance trails leading towards distant horizons; all of them offer a perfect way to get to the heart of ‘Sussex by the sea,’ as it has long been known. If you enjoy cycling with the salty tang of the sea for company, try the ride between Chichester and West Wittering. You can vary the return journey by taking the Itchenor ferry to Bosham. 

West Sussex is renowned for its many pretty towns, of course. Notably, there is Arundel, littered with period buildings and dominated by the castle, the family home of the Duke of Norfolk, that dates back nearly 1,000 years.
