Careful restoration breathes modern style and the menu follows suit with great British food both classic and original. Family-friendly too

This country pub looks splendidly traditional, its thatch crowned by a fox stalking a pheasant. The second of Ben McKeller's Sussex Gingerman pubs, it has a contemporary zing. Both its aim (to create modern British dishes from the finest produce) and its look (armchairs, stone floors, open fires) are close to the Hove original – a cool uncluttered style blends with the old. Chalked-up menus are short and to the point: wood pigeon with bacon and foie gras croquette; brill fillet, cuttlefish, creamed leeks and salsify; and Redlands Farm beef fillet with cauliflower cheese purée. For veggies there's a splendid tasting platter: Guinness and cheddar soup; goat's cheese croquettes with walnut pesto; poached egg with spinach and hollandaise, beetroot, celeriac and apple salad. A favourite with well-heeled locals, so make sure you book; it gets busy!

Guest feedback
"What a beautiful pub, I couldn't have found a better place to stop for lunch on a sunny day. The garden was buzzing, but the helpful and friendly staff made the whole experience calm and relaxing. The food was delicious and the set lunch menu was well rounded. They even pointed me in the direction of a public foot path for an after lunch stroll. "
