We d love to welcome you to our 200 year old Inn that now boasts 6 luxurious and individual rooms plus two fully serviced 2 bedroom cottages all converted with loving care from the original barns and cottage buildings. As we are grade 2 listed we have a rather quirky feel everything is unique and everything is individual.
We believe in the best so our sheets are beautifully laundered in crisp white cotton and all our furnishings - a mixture of antique and contemporary are chosen to suit each room. We dont have themes because we dont believe we need them but as you will find out the room names and numbers are related to their individual style. Leather armchairs and widescreen tvs abound and of course each room has its own bathroom with power showers and large baths. Special toiletries and bathrobes go without saying.
Our Food draws people from all over, the Modern British menu offers classy renditions of pub classics such as Beer Battered Cod and Hand Cut Chips or 28 day aged Sirloin Steak with home made Bearnaise, plus we use local ingredients - Selsey Crab and Diver caught scallops to create dishes with a contemporary twist. Do look on our website for our current menu which changes every couple of months. The daily blackboard specials focus on seasonal dishes reflecting what is available and these change each day. Well behaved children are welcome and we will happily provide smaller portions to suit.
