Badgers Inn – next door

The Badgers is our closest pub (2 minute walk) and has long been one of the most popular eateries in this area.  They offer a wide variety of international dishes and vary their menu often, depending on what is in season. This pub is very popular and we recommend booking to avoid disappointment.  Their number is 01798 342651.

The Cricketers – Duncton, GU28 0LB

Situated just 1.6 miles south of here in the village of Duncton, this pub offers honest, wholesome pub grub.  Lovely big garden for al-fresco eating in summer or a cosy pub with a roaring fire in winter.   Their number is 01798 342473.

The Lickfold Inn – Lickfold GU28 9EY

Fine dining in a lovely old pub.  Unsurpassed service and the best seasonal food.  7.5 miles from here, but worth it for that special occasion.  Telephone number 01798 532535.

Horse Guards Inn – Tillington, GU28 9AF 

Situated just 2.5 miles from here in the village of Tillington, the Horseguards is probably the best place to eat in a 10 mile radius.  A new and varied menu every day, very good food and always fun to eat in this very busy pub.  You really need to book, sometimes well in advance, to get a table here and their number is 01798 342332.

New Street Bar & Grill – Petworth, GU28 0AS

In the heart of Petworth, the New Street Bar & Grill specialises in steaks, using organic beef from Goodwood.  This promises to become one of THE places to eat in town, so give them a call on 01798 345111.   

The Star – Petworth, GU28 0AH

Right in the centre of Petworth, the Star is a very popular pub and eatery.  Their number is 01798 342569.

Meghdoots – Petworth, GU28 0AB

Authentic Indian food in the centre of Petworth.  Very good and rather different from the usual Bangladeshi “Indian” food served in most other “Indian” restaurants.  Telephone 01798 343217.

The Noah’s Ark Inn – Lurgashall, GU28 9ET

Delightful pub in an idyllic village, 7.4 miles from here.  Great food and very popular, so make sure you book.  Telephone number 01428 707346.
