We're in the Michelin Guide

We couldn’t be prouder to be featured in the Michelin Guide, for two consecutive years, in 2022 and 2023. Here’s what they say about the Horse & Groom…
 
“Until 1812, this whitewashed pub was the village blacksmiths. Its cosy, characterful bar oozes charm, while the elegant restaurant boasts a terrific collection of early 20th century artwork. Assured, modern dishes range from pub classics to more creative combinations. Well-appointed bedrooms complete the picture.”

Our Favourite Walks and Cycle Rides

We are lucky enough to be right on the edge of the South Downs National Park with some of the finest walking and cycling in the country. It is possible to walk or ride to Goodwood, West Dean, Stoughton or Uppark without barely crossing a road.
 
For the less adventurous we have planned (and mapped) three of our favourite walks lasting from 1½ to 4 hours and directly accessible from the pub.
