Not as good as you may expect. Ok beers but often warm, not cool.

Not a bad pub with ok but expensive beer from Fullars, Youngs etc. Worth a look if passing, but don't go out of your way.

Went to this pub at 18.30 tonight. I'd read previous review so assumed I could have a pint in a chav free environment.
I struggled with a warm pint of Harveys and had to leave half in the end.
Chavs can be any age Bisley and this pub had plenty of them aged 50+.
I won't be rushing back.

This is a top class pub right in the middle of town - yet neatly tucked away (a good thing insofar as it doesn't attract hordes of chavs).
Does a steady trade both day and night. A good selection of ales, Landlord and HSB among them and the food is both hearty and filling. Very generous portions and good value with a varied specials board.
Traditionally decorated, with ceiling beams, litho prints and horse brasses but don't let that fool you into thinking "old man's pub" as the pleasant, agreeable clientele range from 21 upwards. Out the back is a small, but pleasant sheltered garden - be advised it does get very busy, especially on a breezy night with the smokers as its nicely canopied and fully heated.
Events include Jazz night on a Monday - now I'm not a huge jazz fan, but I recognise talent when I hear it, and this is probably one of the best Jazz nights I've been to. There's a music quiz on a Sunday night for which you'll need pretty good musical knowledge, and a general knowledge quiz on a Wednesday - there's been some really oddball (a la QI) rounds in this one, so well worth a shot as even if you don't win, you're likely to come away with a truly odd snippet of information to bemuse friends!

All in all, a great pub either for a short lunch or evening out, and the central location can make it a good relaxed start if you're out a bit of a tour.

We've been looking for a 'proper' local since we moved to Worthing, and now we've found it - although it was a quiet night when we visited, the atmosphere was excellent, the staff pleasant, and the menu looks good enough for us to come back for a meal. A lovely, traditional pub. So glad we dropped in.
