There is a vintage bus running day at Horsham today and this pub is conveniently the first stop for a full Southdown double decker heading to Steyning. Surprised when only two of us get off here for a 45 minute stop before picking up the bus on its way back.

Dark Star - Hylder Blonde4.20ExcellentLovely and fresh and floral.
Dark Star - Hophead (some, if not all, also brewed by Fuller's)3.80GoodI couldn’t resist the chance to drink this in the brewery tap. It turns out to be just a little off colour.

16:00 visit. Our third stop and we soon filled the place up. Came here on our last bus jolly in 2010. Always an excellant pub stop this one with some top ales on too. A current 2013 gbg entry.

The Butcher's Arms Brewery tour stopped here for lunch between visiting the Dark Star Brewery and the Kent brewery. It's a surprisingly big pub and 50 drunk blokes in red shirts managed not to entirely crowd-out the locals.

Dark Star - IPA6.20GoodNice leafy hops. Syrupy and strong. Pale gold.
Dark Star - Partridge Best Bitter4.00AcceptableBrewed for the pub! A light brown bitter. Hints of smoke and nut. Not bad.
