Boarded up and stands awaiting what is not certain, but looks unlikely ever to open again.

Pub should be commended for supporting live music. Most of the local covers bands in the area play this one. Long may it continue!

Just to showhow a pub can give different impressions. As strangers to the area my wife and I ( in our sixties) visited on a sunny Thursday afternoon. Greeted by the landlord I found the bar to be occupied by six polite but reserved middle aged regulars. A golden labrador and an old black greyhound or lurcher gave a warmer welcome.Plenty of "Food and a Pint for a fiver " offers and a good menu.Ales on offer were HSB,Wells Bombardier,Sussex Summer Harvest. We felt at ease sat out side admiring the view of Lancing College and Shoreham Airfield. No flower baskets were to be seen and this would have brightened up the carpark. Sadly drug use is common these days and unless the customers are dangerous I tend to ignore it. ( Our CSPO was sacked for dealing . Why when he knew all the users?)
If in the area I would visit again but would also bear in mind Dippergt750 comments.

Their entertainment program is pretty good, as is the food. I was a little puzzeled as to why everywhere in the toilets had a greasy feel, until the bar staff cheerfully informed me that this was due to Vaseline being spread on all flat surfaces in order to prevent cocaine use, with which they have a big problem. Having stayed in the pub for an evening it was also obvious that the staff will serve anyone, no matter what state they were in! Quite a lot of people were so drunk that they could barely walk or talk. This is what used to be called a drinkers pub. Not reccomended for children or the elderly.

Just realised i've made a cock up the music calender for 2006 was great and the one for 2007 is looking just as good.

The Coach has been up and down a few times but is generally a good standard these days the food is good wholesome pub grub and the sunday carvery blows any place for 25 miles clean out the water.
The line up for live music in 2005 was great and 2006 i'm told is just as good.They keep 3-6 ales and those i've tried are exceptional.I bit of a hike from town but worth a visit.
