Visited this pub a few months ago for lunch but left early when the bar staff had a screaming match in front of the customers over boyfriends and who should be doing what in the restaurant. Decided to return there this week as is within walking distance of my parents place. Yep lets just say home cooked food dosn't necessarily mean good. There is plenty of food, the prices are average for a pub but there are just as good or even better deals from other pubs nearby. I opted for boozy fish and chips. Chips great but batter was soggy on the fish so didn't eat it and the steak pie was overcooked with burnt pastry and overcooked veg. Nice staff, no arguments this time but think there are some other pubs nearby also worth trying (tudor close and seaview at east preston).

Have you ever found somewhere that makes you feel so good you want to live there? Well, I know this might sound ridiculous but the Henty makes me want to live in Ferring because it sums up the village and the people for me - really friendly and warm. The landlord is a gent and always give you a really warm welcome. I must say though the star of the show for us is Julie, the lovely lady who works behind the bar. We go to Ferring every year on holiday and amazingly she remembers us every time and what we drink even though it's been 12 months since she last saw us!! You won't get that in Wetherspoons or Yates!! I always think that a test of a real pub is how it stands within the community and every time we've been in there you see the same friendly local faces - if they like it enough to be regulars it's good enough for me. There's a quiz night every week, the food is lovely with a great specials board and they also have a beer festival every year. I can't believe the comment I saw about it looking rough and the person concerned insisting they will never visit again - your loss mate, what an idiot!! Who is this person - one of the Royal family - it's a normal local community pub? How can you possibly judge a pub that is shut anyway? Please ignore their comments and visit this great little pub and see for yourself.

Excellent pub, great beer and extremely friendly.

Really good food, especially the pasties. Beer Festival is amazing.

One of the best pubs in the area.
Good choice of real ales and very good value home-cooked food.
15 minutes walk from Goring By Sea station, alternatively bus 700 Brighton - Portsmouth passes close by.

Love it. Two bars, Public: pool/darts/TV/music/etc & Saloon: newspapers/conversation/etc. Run by a Cornish couple, I use it for a beer after work sometimes. Roaring fire in Winter. The saloon bar becomes a restaurant in the evening. Good honest home-cooked food on the menu, and what you see is always what you get -no more, no less. Food & beer are excellent value for money. Whatever these guys are doing, I just hope they keep doing it!

Wonderful real village pub, with a frienly atmosphere,and a fantasic log fire in the winter. Beer is excellent, food is excellent.(Try their Pasties). Run by a lovely couple (landlord from Cornwall) who give you a warm welcome, and are allways smiling. Prices not bad. Clientele are real people, no bad language, and very friendly. Cheers to The Henty, keep up your values.

Rambling community pub with food selection of ales.
The path by the railway track was not too traumatic.

apa is right, also a word of warning the good beer guide says there is a footpath from the local station, true but its covered in mud and has more mr heinz would be proud of the 57 variety's of dog s**t

Lovely proper local pub - good food at excellent prices, very friendly staff. Unlike the previous poster, have always had excellent real ales here.

Pub not too bad. Quiet with a roaring log fire in the saloon bar. Public bar has pool table. Seperate restaurant. Worse thing about it was the beer. About the worst pint of Deuchars IPA that I have ever had.

I often visit this pub for dinner or lunch and it's one of my favourites.
Really, genuinely lovely bar staff, superb pub grub and a very warm and welcoming atmosphere.
Highly recommended by me!
