Everyone seems to be living their lives at breakneck speeds these days, but it’s so easy to introduce a change of pace when the weekend comes around. The pressures of work and home can take their toll on all of us, but Saturdays and Sundays represent a golden opportunity to step back from the chaos for a while.
Here amid the picturesque beauty of the South Downs National Park, the pace of life is fairly slow, and that’s just the way we like it. This glorious corner of south-east England lends itself perfectly to the gentle art of creating the perfect weekend, no matter how stressed you might be feeling.
Our pub represents a sanctuary from the pressure, and we provide the warmest of welcomes to all our visitors. Whether you’ve been hiking in the hills, shopping in the city, inching along in the traffic or working too hard in the office, we offer a stunning range of refreshing drinks and a food menu that’s packed with temptations.
The perfect location for the perfect escape
We love the location of the Shepherd & Dog, because it gives us a unique opportunity to provide a retreat from the outside world. We’re nestled snugly in the idyllic village of Fulking, yet we remain pleasingly close to the exciting city of Brighton and within an hour from the very centre of London. There are many good restaurants in Brighton, and we feel we are as good as any in the region.
Every week, we cater to the needs of a pleasing mix of locals, visitors to the National Park and tourists from all over the world. We like the fact that our customer base is so diverse, and although each of our customers is different they all leave with the opinion that time spent in the Shepherd & Dog is as rewarding as it gets.
If you’re in the area in the coming weeks, come and say hello and discover a luxurious sanctuary away from your other, more hectic life. Whether you’re here for a quick drink or a multi-course banquet, we look forward to seeing you. Here in the Sussex countryside, it’s all about having a good time free of worry and stress.
The Shepherd & Dog is a traditional country pub and restaurant located in the heart of the Sussex countryside, offering superb food and a comprehensive range of cold and hot drinks. We offer the type of fine dining Sussex can be proud of.
