Our Story

Our relaxed pub is simply the perfect place for lazy lunches, drinks with friends, sublime suppers, traditional Sunday lunches and our beautiful sunny Sussex Garden is the perfect spot throughout the summer. We have a genuine affection for our customers, many of whom have travelled with us on our culinary journey starting in Billingshurst back in the summer of 93!

Our lovely front of house team will ensure the friendliest, but discreet service and love nothing more than a bit of banter and catch up on what you have been up to.

Nick and his talented team are committed to producing some of the best food in the area and pride themselves on using fish landed daily on the South Coast, Native Lobsters and Oysters from Colchester, Meat & Game from local suppliers and Fruit and Veg from Covent Garden Market.

What’s the secret?

“We simply love what we do” says Becky, “seeing happy customers and getting great feedback still remains a great buzz for Nick and I. We know that we’re only as good as our last meal, so we work hard to be consistent both in terms of the food we serve and the hospitality we offer”.

And the future?

We don’t like to sit still” explains Nick, “we’re always looking at fresh ways to keep our customers coming back. We’ve got great plans for continuing our takeaway service, we are also looking into delivered Seafood dishes and finish at home boxes & some great events over the next year.

 But ultimately, it’s to run a caravan site in the Dordogne! Well according to Becky anyway!
