Pleasantly busy Sunday lunchtime.We sat in the garden under the apple trees. A group of locals were discussing a hogroast at someone's wedding. A clean and tidy, well run pub,mainly aimed at the dining market, as are many!

Arundel - Castle3.80ExcellentOn the pumps as Fox Goes Free Best Bitter, brewed at Arundel.I think it was this.Anyway, a pleasant Best, with a bit more in the way of hops and condition than the Ballard's. Brown, not boring.
Otter - Amber4.00ExcellentA different one, this-spicy, with almost a seaweedy tang.Had a quick half : would like to try more.
Ballards (now a sub brand of Greyhound) - Best Bitter4.10AcceptableNot in tiptop condition, but a good best bitter, with plenty of malt.Good chestnut colour.
Otter - Ale4.50Not Tried

Lovely old pub,mostly laid up for meals. Traditional bar to one side.Very popular with diners. Meals pricey but decent helpings.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Ballards (now a sub brand of Greyhound) - Best Bitter4.10ExcellentCopper coloured. Initially malty and one dimensional, but after a few minutes the hops won through, leading to a well balanced traditional Best, well capable of coping with the epic steak and kidney pie that we consumed crammed into the inglenook.
Hop Back - Summer Lightning5.00Not TriedWas tempted for old time's sake,but I had serious business to attend to.
Harvey's - Sussex Best Bitter4.00Not TriedThere was also a HouseBeer-I couldn't ascertain its origin.
