This pub should have everything going for it: a central
location in a beautiful village of thatched cottages, with a fine old interior
and even a resident folk club. Unfortunately this is all spoilt by an
unadventurous menu, poorly cooked food, a restricted choice of beer of
disappointing quality, and uninterested staff. My partner and I went there for
a meal a few days ago, the last night of a walking holiday along the South
Downs. The "trout with almonds" I ordered had clearly been microwaved
from frozen and was uncooked and only luke warm in the middle. There was no
sign of it having been finished in an oven or under a grill. The almonds had
presumably simply been poured on top from a cook's jar at the last minute. The
landlady looked surprised when I sent it back. When a second one arrived we
were assured the cook had "done her best with it" but it was still
raw in the middle. We sent that back too. Rather than do the decent thing and
apologise in person or offer us something else from the menu, the landlady then
simply avoided us. We paid for my partner's meal (adequate but basic) and our
drinks and left. It seems such a shame that a pub in such an iconic position in
such a pretty village should be run so apparently badly.
