A roadside hotel-cum-pub rebuilt in 1885 by Southdown & East Grinstead Breweries Ltd to designs, probably, by Samuel Denman of Brighton. The hotel function is firmly proclaimed in the etched glass of the central doors. The pub part is on the right and has a long room with simple fittings. These are much as they were in Victorian times with a wood-block floor, wall seating, panelled counter and bar-back fitting (with cash drawers including two slots for notes discreetly placed at the rear inside) and a series of ceramic spirit casks. Note the hatch on the left of the servery for hotel customers and waiters who would have served the restaurant on the left (now a function room). The small room at the rear has a split door, served via a hatch from the servery. In early 2016 the pub was used for shooting scenes for the British horror film Harbour. Closed weekday afternoons.
