There are so many good reasons to spend time in our area, including of course the chance to spend quality time in the various pubs in the South Downs National Park. There’s something very special about relaxing when you don’t have a care in the world, and here at the Shepherd & Dog we pride ourselves on providing a sanctuary away from the pressures of everyday life. Needless to say, this corner of south-east England has many other attractions to consider.
While you’re touring the region and wondering where to find the best place to eat in Sussex, be sure to head to the iconic waterfront in Brighton. On a sunny afternoon this fabulous city – it ceased to be a town in 2000 – really comes alive, and the streets and promenade are bustling with people from all over the world. And don’t forget that when it comes to evening dining Brighton has just about everything.
One of the most popular activities in the area is cycling, and it’s a particular pleasure away from the somewhat busy streets of the towns and cities. The idyllic countryside to the north of Brighton is perfect, because the roads aren’t too busy and the picturesque scenery is a delight. And don’t forget, the Shepherd & Dog is one of the finest pubs for cyclists in South Downs.
While you’ll have plenty of choice when you seek refreshments in pubs in East Sussex and West Sussex, some of them have the added attraction of a large beer garden to enjoy when the weather is warm. In the summer, the local population is swelled by a large influx of overseas tourists but don’t worry, there’s always plenty of room at the Shepherd & Dog.
We have gained a strong reputation for offering the type of fine dining Sussex has become celebrated for, but we also bring you some stupendous light bites and sandwiches. There are times when all you want from life is a chance to settle back in a comfy chair and watch the world go by, and our garden provides the perfect excuse to do just that.
The Shepherd & Dog is one of the finest pubs in the South Downs National Park. We’re located in the charming village of Fulking, and we hope to see you soon. Call 01273 857 382 for more information.
