Pubs in Sussex

Vast expanses of deserted rolling countryside scattered with old converted windmills and sleepy villages, are evocative of a county admired by those wanting to seek sanctuary from their busy life.

The South Downs sweep down to the shoreline forming a green backdrop to seaside towns resonate of history.

This county portrays the perfect image of serene rural life scattered with Sussex country pubs miles from anywhere. But from the countryside to the coast, there are also historic towns and seaside resorts chock-a-block with family-friendly things to enjoy.

Dominated by cosmopolitan Brighton, you can sample the enduring charms of the classic English seaside, visit places where history was made, such as the site of the Battle of The Cat Inn, East GrinsteadHastings, and get out and about on the South Downs. Perfectly positioned for enjoying the Downs are delightful watering holes such as the Royal Oak at East Lavant, the Snowdrop Inn near Lewes or, just down the road, the Pelham Arms.

This region also has its fair share of breweries, so it will come as no surprise that there are so many country pubs in Sussex showcasing superb local ales. Pubs like the The Hatch near Hartfield.
