The Stand Up Inn, Lindfield

I suppose, if you were unaware of this pub's previous, Dark Star, incarnation, you might turn up and think that this is a good, relaxed, welcoming pub with a fine selection of ales. To the rest of us, who knew and loved the 'old' Stand Up, what has happened here can only be described as tragic. It's very hard to explain what's lacking here but the renovation has completely expunged the spirit of the place. There is a dazzling array of pumps at the bar but the first one I chose was off (just happened at that moment apparently) and the second one tasted like it was going off. It cost 3.80 for a pint of ale which is basically theft. In a way, this place has turned into the antithesis of the Dark Star original - the way it looks is now more important than what it delivers. I won't be going back in a hurry.

The Half Moon Inn, Plumpton

Excellent pub, this. Went a couple of weeks back for a birthday lunch with friends. Food was excellent (took a while to arrive but they were plainly busy and the quality was worth the wait). Good bustling atmosphere and well kept pint of Harveys. However, if you have something against children, then approach with caution, as this is a family friendly pub and there will be small human beings there.

The Wheatsheaf, Cuckfield

Popped in for a quick pint with the wife on a saturday lunchtime. First time we had ever been to this pub. It was reasonably busy, there is a pleasant seating area outside and there was a good choice of ales (i went for the Banks' Sunbeam). I was reliably informed that the ladies toilets were impressively clean; the gents were average. Overall this is a straightforward pub with no false pretences, putting in a shift for the thirsty masses.
