So many reasons to love our Sussex gastropub

 

One of the things we love about being one of the finest pubs for families in Sussex is the way we’re able to offer something for everyone. There are some pubs in our region that offer a great range of wines and beers at the bar, and some that are famous for their superb food while others are great pubs for cyclists in South Downs. Here at the Shepherd & Dog, we’re all those things and so much more.

 

We never forget that with so many pubs in West Sussex to choose from, every one of our customers has a choice. It pleases us immensely when they choose to spend some of their valuable leisure time here, relaxing in style with friends, family members or work colleagues, or of course on their own. The best Sussex country pubs are perfect for all occasions, after all.

 

The Shepherd & Dog offers a wonderful combination of the modern and traditional, and that’s just how we like it. We have a glorious garden for summer get-togethers accompanied by splendid views, while inside we offer original fittings, log fires and the warmest of welcomes. And, of course, we bring you the type of fine dining Sussex has become famous for.

 

Pure indulgence at perhaps the best place to eat in Sussex

 

As well being a wonderful place in which to eat and drink, we’re also keen to promote the gentle art of indulgence. We love the fact that we’re regarded as one of the most cycle friendly pubs in Sussex, for example, and that we enjoy our status as perhaps the best of all dog friendly pubs in Sussex as well. We feel, understandably, that our position in the South Downs National Park gives us a unique location.

 

If you are yet to discover the Shepherd & Dog, why not come and join us soon for a few drinks and perhaps a bite to eat as well? We have built up an excellent reputation for our culinary journeys, so now would be a good time to come and see what all the fuss is about. There’s something special about all Sussex pubs these days, but we think ours is even more magical.

 

The Shepherd & Dog is a classic example of the finest family pubs near Brighton. Located in Fulking, it’s well worth a visit. Come and see us soon.

One of the best Sussex pubs of them all, but don’t take our word for it

 

We are proud to be thought of as one of the finest gastropubs in Sussex, and we get a great deal of pleasure from playing host to customers who are visiting for the first time. Whether people are just popping in for a couple of drinks before leaving to explore the area, or just settling in for a long afternoon accompanied by a fabulous meal, we are always happy when they tell us how impressed they are by the Shepherd & Dog.

There is no such thing as a typical day in the life of our country inn. At weekends, we cater for a huge number of ramblers, dog walkers and cyclists. In recent times, we have become one of the most popular pubs for cyclists in South Downs, for example, and we are understandably proud of the reputation we have earned among the two-wheeled community. Cycling has attracted many more men, women and children over the years and we love the fact that our pub has become a regular refreshment stop for riders from across the south-east of England. On a daily basis, we compete with some wonderful pubs in Sussex, and we feel that we can match the very best of them.

 

Warm weather, cold drinks and happy times in family pubs near Brighton

 

If you enjoy a few drinks alfresco when the weather is good, the chances are you will fall in love with our large pub garden. There are a number of superb rural pubs in Sussex, but few offer outside facilities that can match ours. On a warm Sunday afternoon, the ultimate quality time can be found at the Shepherd & Dog, where comfortable seating, refreshing drinks, a warm welcome and some stunning countryside views can be enjoyed by all.

Needless to say, our evenings are spent providing the type of fine dining Brighton has become famous for. The region has a reputation for superb food served amid the most convivial of atmospheres, so if you are yet to see why our reputation is so well deserved, pay a visit soon to perhaps the finest of all Sussex gastropubs. As we take those first tentative steps towards the spring season, the need to unwind in style becomes ever more pressing.

The Shepherd & Dog is an award-winning Sussex gastropub located in the tranquil and picturesque village of Fulking.
