Our final stop of the day in West Sussex was the White Lion. The car park at the rear is very tight and with the pub's popularity, you may not get a space. We ended up parking way down the lane. Although our consideration to not block others in was later to cost us, as others drove in afterwards, parked with a lack of consideration and got served before us. Ales on were Harvey's Sussex Best Bitter, St Austell Tribute & Langham Godiva & Arapaho. The real cider was Mole's Black Rat Dark Fruits. The interior is quite small, with the main room laid out for diners. However, there are a couple of tiny drinking areas. We enquired about food. But, the only tables they had were in the garden. We agreed to this, as it was a nice summer's evening. However, after over an hour waiting for 3 burgers, the sun had gone down and it was getting decidedly chilly. On going back to the car to get some jackets, I decided to get it back into the car park. Although getting back into the steep entrance of the car park from this direction proved to be a little more problematic and I ended up grounding the car! Bar/waiting staff were very apologetic about the wait, as it appeared that our order had gone into the kitchen after a large party of 8, who were most likely the ones who had arrived after us in the car park! They ended up refunding the price of one of the burgers, which was much appreciated. The food itself was good. Nice village pub overall, only let down by the parking problems!

A late afternoon visit (one of a few over the years) found this pub welcoming and relaxing. Cottage Bristol Bulldog was sampled and in good condition and served well. Harveys Sussex Best and Fuller's London Pride was also on tap. Harveys drunk in previous visits has always been well kept. Worth the visit and no doubt, won't be our last.

My partner and I had a Valentine's Day meal and I had the Kobe beefburger as my main course. It was excellent and worth the expense. We both enjoyed our 3 course meals and Anne got a complementary single red rose, as did all the ladies having a meal that night. We thoroughly recommend this pub, whether you are eating, drinking or just socialising with friends.

A great traditional village pub, unspoilt and with a good atmosphere about it. I will definitely go back when next passing.

Very friendly small country pub that sells four real ales, together with the usual lager, cider, spirits and a comprehensive wine list. I can't comment on the wines as I am not a wine drinker but the real ales are well kept. My other half does drink wine and she says the quality is good There is no printed menu but the blackboard menu changes daily and includes many unusual items. The prices are mid-range but reasonable considering the freshness and quality of the produce used. This pub has the usual quota of "characters" but they seem friendly. Dogs are welcome and the pub has three of their own. Unfortunately, I am not a dog person but, nevertheless, we thoroughly recommend this pub.
