It does get busy and Friday and Saturday evenings get quite loud, too many people talking at the same time, the conservatory for eating is a bit more peaceful but one can not always be seated there, staff are friendly and waiting for food is quite quick so worth a visit

Always a warm welcome and the food is always amazing and brought many friends along too and they all agree the food is great. Plenty of... More

Very glad we did, Both were very nice but the roast was excellent though (minor criticism is roasties probably microwaved and therefore a little... More

Been here a few times lately and overall a pretty good pub. Experience this lunchtime was not great. Very slow service and some of the main courses were not to their usual standard. Worst thing was that the drinks for the rear restaurant just sit on a tray at the bar for 20 minutes each time, whilst the staff just... More

We had a family gathering after a busy morning there and we were made to feel so welcome. It's so nice to see the manager getting stuck in with delivering food and serving behind the bar. Everyone was helpful with recommendations and the service was surprisingly quick given there was 14 of us! Excellent.

We were meeting up with family from around the country and booked a table for 15 of us. The place was busy when we arrived, but the staff were all really friendly and welcoming. The meal was excellent and atmosphere lovely. The service was excellent throughout our time.

This is probably the best pub in Horsham and it certainly has the best food and staff! We went to celebrate our parents 50th wedding anniversary and found the management so helpful, accommodating and they really could not do enough to help us and make us feel welcome. We were are large party yet the food all came out together... More
