“Formerly called the Jug & Bottle back in the 1700s, it still has the same old beams that would crack your skull if it were not for the glitter of horse brasses to catch your attention plus an unusual collection of service badges and the odd coin.” James Scott wrote this in 1987 for the West Sussex Gazette . The beams are still there and the horse brasses and an odd coin, as well as some hidden on a beam, but the service badge collection has gone.
The only pub in the village where locals have met and gossiped for centuries is still a popular venue for villagers and anyone passing through.
During the colder Winter months the Inglenook is stacked with logs and lit to warm and provide a cosy glow for patrons to enjoy.
