Hope you read that title with the tune going on in your head!
Now we finally seem to be enjoying something like a summer, we’re really seeing more of you heading off up the hill to enjoy some of the spectacular scenery we’re blessed with around the pub.
While there are some really nice walks starting from the car park, we have the advantage of also being in easy reach of Devils Dyke (well, easy if you’ve got the legs for the climb up the hill). So you’re not limited to just the dog walks or hikes around us here, there’s plenty of scope for roaming further afield and you can just use us as a base or a pit stop.
If you’re feeling energetic just head South out of the beer garden, climb up to the top of the Downs and you’re only half a mile from the Devils Dyke. For the hardy souls walking along the South Downs Way (which runs along the escarpment just behind us) we’re an ideal place to drop down for a spot of lunch or a well earned pint.
Dog Friendly – Walker Friendly – And Just Plain Friendly
If you do decide to stay, the garden is coming into it’s own again in the fine weather. It’s the ideal place to take a load off once you’ve clocked a few miles and dog Walkers and Hikers all get to appreciate the outdoor bar. So whatever your plans for the day, its well worth stopping by.
