The Fox Goes Free has a lovely setting in a nice West Sussex village. It was certainly quite popular. Cars had spilled over from the car park and were either side of the lane, which appeared to be annoying the local residents. The entrance door is slightly strange in that you have to open it to get in and then close it in order to head to the room on your left. I held the door for a lady coming from that direction, only for her to leave the door wide open. This didn't appear to be appreciated by the locals (it was fairly cold on our Christmas Eve visit) and I was abruptly told to close the door, even though I hadn't left it open! It was a good job I was in a reasonable state of mind. The interior has a number of different rooms, with open fires. Ales were Goldmark Secret Santa & Liquid Gold & Arundel Fox Goes Free Bitter. Addlestones cider is also served, which I always enjoy. It is becoming a rare sight these days.

Visited with friends after takingg part in a local walk, and what a lovely find!

This feels like a real pub, the food is good, if perhaps a pound or two overly priced. For me, any pub that serves Otter Ale (the red clip) is already a winner and it was in great condition! Budweiser, King of Beers, I think not!

And for those anoraks amongst you, cast your minds back to Tom Baker's Dr Who battling the Zygons near Loch Ness, well this is the pub that was used for the Brigadier's base!

This is a 'Posh Peoples Pub' set in a twee hamlet at the foot of the south downs conveniently close to the Goodwood Horse Racing and Motor Racing circuits so if you crave a peaceful pint away from the 'wah wahs' and the petrol-heads and the Londoners with nearby week-end holiday homes, go mid-week. Plenty of space inside and nice gardens outside when the weather is fine. Expensive but worth a visit if you are thirsty.

Popped in after Goodwood races - choice of Ballards, Fox Goes Free (Arundel Brewery), Wadworth Horizon and Otter.

Horizon and Otter tried - both good but 3.40 and 3.75 respectively.

Called in here in July.Didn't plan to eat, but did. Good but pricey-well it is next door to Goodwood. Beer excellent. As good as it was a couple of years back.
