Under new management for two weeks, visited at lunchtime for a drink and to check out the food and were not disappointed. Usual pub standards both hot & cold on the menu plus specials (beef & merlot casserole, liver & bacon, pork & mustard casserole), we both had an excellent fish pie, and friendly and efficient service. Sunday roasts come in small, medium and large sizes.

Dog friendly too.

Home made chicken kiev with baked beans featured on the menu on my last visit, how odd...

I last ate at the snowdrop inn late June and must admit as a chef myself I was very impressed with the upkeep and overall vibe of this little abode in the outskirts of Lindfield but had not given it a review which I was meaning to do like many places before me the drinks were faultless I believe there lines are cleaned on a regular basis as the ales were crisp and clear service was okay but could be improved on,
The food which I'm usually pay more attention to being a 3 rosette chef myself and many years of experience was by all means such a delight, possibly the best pub/gastronomic experience I had in this type of establishment.
BUT and I feel saddened by this in the past few months I visited mid September and at the beginning of this month I feel let down from such a high and been given such high expectations from my first visit that this former little gem seems to be letting standards drop, the staff are not as welcoming my first visit and seem disorganised in there work place but I could not fault the ales as they still are outstanding quality and very refreshing, but the biggest disappointment being the back of house in the creation and presentation of the food has dropped ten fold, which I cannot understand the reason for this the menu is hardly the reason as my first visit was outstanding but recently the food lacks love in the look and taste being very bland and not tasteful by any means whether it was the chefs day off that I had on my first visit or change of staff I do not know as I asked the waitress but she stated uses the same chef that has ran the business of the kitchen for the past year which I believe cannot be true as in my experience no real chef drops his standards that much in 3-4 months, anyway I can honestly say I shall be avoiding the snowdrop inn until I hear that standards have been raised once again and the food is once again a taste sensation with the return of there most amazing gravy I had ever tasted out of a pub kitchen in which now seems to be 3rd grade in comparison.
I hope to be writing a better review in the future for this ONCE extravagant country retreat.
So please don't lose what you once had otherwise it's a shame we add another restaurant to the list of broken dreams and giants that once were.

From memory, a really out-of-the way pub with a good atmosphere.

Called in with an old friend today and we both enjoyed our lunch. The pub was beautifully clean which we both commented upon. Staff were very welcoming and very helpful. The lunch time menu didn't have a great deal of choice but what we had was cooked and presented nicely. I had no idea this place existed until I saw it in LIVING magazine and am now glad I found it down a little country lane. I will definitely go back again to see what is on the evening menu. Car park at the rear and flat easy access for my elderly friend made it a very good choice all round.
