Yes it more "foodie" than "aley" but the licensee is taking an admirable approach to supporting the local economy and this extends to taking beers from local brewers. The usual Hophead and another in good condition (I've forgotten!) were on tap.

We've been to the Plough in the evenings several times over the last couple of years with another couple and really enjoyed the meals on the main menu, with excellent service and prices to match the quality of the food. On a recent evening visit we were shown the "Bar Menu" which looked just right for lunchtime. We therefore went there for lunch with several friends after a local walk. Big mistake - Only 2 of our group enjoyed their meal. The rest were definitely not at all happy. The gammon steaks were like rubber as was the tough substance in the so-called chicken pie. Least said the better for the lasagne. To top it all - when we commented on the stone cold plates, the waiter made a joke of it. By this time were not in the mood for jokes - Never again!!

We stopped here on the way down to Brighton and we obviously were the first people in there as they drew off the last of the cleaning fluid as we waited! Still, that meant that the beer was in excellent order; Dark Star Original and Hophead were available. Everything is modern wooden here, from the panelled walls and floor to the seating (although there was some green leather on the window seats) and it may well be more for diners than drinkers. I agree with previous posters about the noise of the nearby A23 but, of course, that's not too much of a worry if you are inside.

Unfortunately more of a restaurant than a pub. We called in for a drink on Christmas Day lunchtime, but were refused because we were not dining there. Annoyingly there were no notices to this effect on the front door. Won't bother going back there again.

I stopped off recently after a long walk across the Downs, and had great expectations of the pub after wandering through this pretty village (the village guide describes the pub as having been an historic Coaching Inn)

The pub itself is now actually more of a restaurant than a pub, serving Italian food. The staff are friendly and obliging, but it doesn't really feel like a pub, not helped by the rather severely modernised interior. As others have said, it's hard to get away from the noise of the nearby A23, and the front of the pub is dominated by the car park and BP service station. The beer garden and large restaurant conservatory at the rear are more private, although the traffic noise is still noticeable outside.

My pint was also rather disappointing - slightly cloudy and definitely on the turn.
