Sunday lunch here was sensational; the roasts were first-rate as were the "fish and chips". We brought our family of 10 including children to eat here, and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. New ownership meant there was no website - this was a recommendation from...More

Not that I noticed. The back garden is a sort of yard so I suppose children might be able to play there. It's in a very quiet peaceful setting with a green to the front.

The Hollist Arms is at the heart of the picturesque village of Lodsworth, West Sussex. We are a traditional village pub offering local ales, an excellent wine list and simple, high quality food with an emphasis on the best local ingredients. The pub has a bar area that is often busy with village locals, a restaurant, snug, and private dining and function rooms upstairs. Outside there are tables on the tiny village green that are popular with walkers, and behind us a lovely secluded pub garden.
