Goodness knows how this pub won W Sussex Pub of the Year, I can only think they voted for themselves, just as I feel the other reviews here have been written by the landlord/staff. Admittedly from the outside it looks like an interesting old place, indeed the main room is, but its put over to 'meal' use so you cant sit there for a drink and are thus forced into a small, smelly area next to the toilets, which isnt pleasant. As for the toilets themselves, horrid. How can a place keep running with such an old, unkempt and frankly nasty facility. Then there's the restaurant staff - we were told in no uncertain terms by a large blonde woman that we would have to wait and wait we certainly did. She could have said it in a more friendly and welcoming way, by way of apology, but no, it was a threatening snarl. Again no apology when she took our order and another expression of superiority with a haughty "what do you want". My partner asked for his meat to be very well done, but it arived a pink mush, which needed to be sent back, again with no apology.
Horrible place and horrible service.

The Star Inn @ Rusper........ recently crowned West Sussex Pub of the year, and I am not at all suprised. The Landlord is exremely likeable and keeps his beer well. The staff always look as if they are enjoying themselves and this translates to a great atomosphere. After eating there a number of times it is clear that the kitchen team are very good at what they do, good selection of meals, very well presented and brilliant flavours.

Nice atmosphere pub, strange layout of rooms inside. Although my last visit was with a group of ramblers and we sat in the beer garden!

This pub can get busy at weekends. Good food and a varied menu with some greek specials on (the landlord is Greek and a real diamond). Staff are friendly. There is a fairly large dining area and reasonably priced menu (considering it's a countryside pub.) A smallish sized sun terrace garden to the rear. As a beer drinker this pub is second to none for it's Fullers London Pride, kept to perfection. A great pub for a quiet drink in the week but does get busier as the weekends approach. The Sunday roast, (food after 6pm) is great.

What a lovely friendly pub. Excellent selection of drinks and fantastic food. The food is a bit pricey but par for the course in this area. The atmosphere is very warm and friendly with a warm welcome from all the staff.
Beer is served at perfect temperature. Its very busy so booking is recommended at weekends. Well worth a visit
