Eat Out

We are very lucky to have so many great local places to eat and enjoy a tasty tipple. 

Here are a few of our favourite places to eat out.


The Richmond Arms

Ten minutes walk.

Our personal favourite, although it is the more expensive of our local gastro pubs, but my goodness, is it worth it!!


 A fantastic menu with local specials that never fail to be delicious, inspiring and with a great wine list and selection of drinks.  It is limited on space though so booking is recommended or you could always try their pizza/tapas add on restaurant, just as tasty with a smaller price tag.


The Horse & Groom

2 minute drive / 25 minutes walk

A very traditional pub with a wonderful victorian range and various fire places making it very cosy.


 A very reasonable menu with all the pub favourites done with excellence and generous helpings!  


A great place for a drink with the locals after a walk on the South Downs.


The Fox & Hounds

2 minute drive / 35 minute walk

This is a spacious and welcoming local pub.  They often have live music on a Saturday night.  


We recommend their carvery on a Sunday, delicious and great value for money.  A well rounded menu for a mid-range dinner.  


Family friendly due to the space and only 2 minutes drive from Oakwood Glamping or a 35 minute walk on a Sunday lunch time.



10 minutes drive

Local's Favourites

Village Pubs

Head in any direction from us and you will soon come to a  village pub.  


There are so many great ones to choose from.   The Hare & Hounds at Stoughton is a pretty Downland village pub with outside seating.  Take a walk over Kingley Vale and finish with a drink or a meal there. 

The Crown & Anchor at Del Quay is another great find.  Tasty food, excellent drinks and a view over the harbour.  Lots of outside seating and ice cream on the green if the weather is right!

Take a drive through the countryside and see which one tempts you in.
