|Usual poor ale offering from GK...why, oh why do they not use a specialist local brewer? Afraid of a bit of competition, I guess. A pity really as they are trying very hard with a food menu that looks excellent BUT is it like their beer offering, flattering to deceive? As no decent brew I wended my way to Ardingly in search of both good food and good beer.|

|Only pub I've ever been banned from. I wonder if the embargo imposed by that nasty little landlord back in 1983 still applies ?|

|This was a recommendation pub from friends - oh dear! The ambience was okay in the bar but was lost in the restaurant side - lights on full created no sense of privacy or intimacy and left me feeling as if I was eating in a village hall. |
I ordered the Rump steak @ 16.95 thinking that as finalists as steak pub of the year it would be good - it was less than 1 cm thick and much less than the 8oz it promised. I asked for med rare it can med well the thick cut chips had run out - this is Sat night with Sunday lunch approaching but they had no potatoes - just goes to showbtgatvthey are really frozen chips - so we got thin fries. My wife's was no better!
The burger was so over garlicked it swamped the table overpowering everything and the bun was burnt! The desserts were a let down and the service very poor yet they still carved £11 for the lack of it. This place is all talk and no substance over priced and simply does not deliver the goods ---- avoid !!!!!

|Oh dear! The Cowdray has become a bit foodie & pretentious. Says everything sourced locally, but no local ales to be found. A real shame!|
