    The Swan Inn: 14th Century Coach Inn

    by Acirfa Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Apparently the sign of the Swan is as old as Queen Anne and the building is 200 hundred years older than that. The stables are still standing, once used for stage coaches and horses.

    It is said that John Constable used to go on painting expeditions nearby and possibly stayed at the Swan, which even then was a Constable House.
    Victorian Artists have left their paintings on the panelling of the little lounge.

    The shields at the top of the sign gantry represent the Arms of his Grace The Duke of Norfolk, the Lord of the manor of Bury, and of Lord Leconfield, Lored of the Manors of Stopham, Waltham and Amberely

    Favorite Dish: Roast Sunday lunch.

    Bax Castle: Downs Link Pub

    by Acirfa Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Great Place to stop off whilst cycling or walking the Downs Link (old railway track now used as a walking and cycling track through the countryside.

    Garden and play area for children.
    Friendly and on Sunday's roast pots are placed out as nibbles with your well earned beer.

    July 2008
    I felt the need to update the information on the pub due to the chef presently at the Inn, he is a SA and produces some of SA best dishes, Bunny Chow, Bobotie, Skewered steak, Pap, Wors and there is more to come. The food is fantastic and plenty of it.

    So for all of you local South Africans, make your way to Bax Castle for a taste of home

    The Partridge Inn: Great Gastropub

    by zuriga Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Partridge is just down the road from both the Weald and Downs Museum and the famous hill fort - The Trundle. We had a great lunch there of very fresh and delicious food - a lovely garden and outdoor tables are available in the warm weather.

    The White Hart: Ramblers Riverside Rest

    by Acirfa Written Aug 20, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This pub is set in an idealic spot, aside from the slightly invasive carpark, the scene is set for a country river rest. Approach can be via the main road or as walkers over the beautiful Stopham Bridge and monument.

    Swans glide aimlessly along the river and the bridge is a magnificent work of engineering from the 14th Century I believe.

    The Plough and Attic Rooms: 500 Year old Inn

    by Acirfa Written Aug 20, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This pub is set in the village of Rusper and is over 500 years old. With it's low beams and small doorways and flagstone floors, it retains it's charm of days gone by. Recently it has had it's garden refurbished with plenty of comfortable seating in a large area.

    This is a freehouse pub with good food and the menu changes every three months.

    The Attic Rooms are two function/dining rooms.

    As my companion stated, the favourite pub pastime is to watch people bang their heads on the low ceiling .. and then do it yourself!

    The Fountain Inn: Country Pub

    by Acirfa Updated Jun 17, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dating from the 16th century, the Fountain Inn is a free house comprising several small bar areas with flagstone floors, wooden beams and inglenook fireplace.

    There are attractive gardens with pond - and a skittle alley and function room in a separate building at the front of the pub.

    Some years ago, the pub was used by Paul McCartney to film the video for his song "Wonderful Christmas Time." He was also a regular at the pub.

    Sir Lawrence Olivier was a regular at this pub and had his usual seat in the inglenook fireplace.

    Off Road Cycle Route
    The best off road route is to pick up the Downs Link bridleway at Southwater or Copsale and cycle south. At Partridge Green, turn right on to the B2135 [the bridleway crosses this road] and continue for 2 miles [3.2 km] and the pub is on the left.

    Amberley Castle: Special Occassions

    by Acirfa Updated Feb 10, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a step back into Medieval times, which starts from the moment you enter the grounds. The long drive towards the Castle leaves one awestruck at it's beauty and the smells that greet you on your stroll to the restaurant take you back into another dimension.
    On entering the Castle itself, you are greeted and shown into one of the lounges for pre dinner drinks if you so wish.
    We took advantage of this, ordered a bottle of wine from the vast list and settled in front of the log fire for half an hour.
    We placed our order and were given small pastries to nibble on whilst waiting for our table.
    The menu was excellent, we chose from the Table d'hote which was £20 for two courses or £25 for three. The choice ranged from palma ham, soup and salad with mains such as salmon, a vegetarian dish and duck. Desert offers were a selection of French and English cheeses, pastry or Baileys creme brulee with fruit and shortbread biscuit.
    The ambience of the castle was what made the whole experience, stunning grounds, picturesque castle, the interior was exquisitely decorated and the ladies bathroom was hard not to spend more than a little time in.
    The only downfall was the rather unfortunately mannered male receptionist, sadly he sets the first impression and so one has to override this and see beyond him to appreciate what is otherwise a most romantic Castle to visit.
    Dinner, bed and breakfast is at a cost of £500, this is to be housed in one of the castles 14 rooms....... I advise taking advantage of any offers to at least experience a delightful meal with a special someone.

    Favorite Dish: Butternut Squash soup with roasted sunflower seeds
    Duck on a bed of chilli mash potato in a redjuc with veg.
    Coffee and petit fours.

    The Gerorge and Dragon: Great pub food

    by nigelw6443 Written Sep 23, 2003

    Just east of Arundel this is one of the oldest pubs in the area. Take a walk around the countryside nearby and visit the 12th century church, then stop off in the pub and have a pint of ale and a lovely steak pie!

    Favorite Dish: The steak pie was very good.

    Black Rabbitt: Riverside Pub

    by Acirfa Updated Mar 9, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Set overlooking the River Arun in Arundel, this pub makes a lovely spot to partake of lunch on a summers day particularly, however, it is a popular place so arriving early is probably a must.
