This is a very nice local pub. Great selection of the beers and ales. I'm not sure when this place was established but I've been stopping by here for 15 years. I love the copper mantle pieces in the open wood beam ceiling. Very friendly and helpful staff and a great beer garden in the back.

Stayed here for 3 nights midweek. Staff are friendly and there is a good beer garden. The breakfast is limited but good. My room was large but needed refurbishing and, as it faced the High Street, had a lot of traffic noise.

We had lunch with friends who live in the village who had booked the table. The pub is quirky and seems very popular. Our meals were all cooked to perfection. Our friends fish and chips looked lovely and my husband's omelette was nicely cooked and served with golden crisp chips and salad. I ordered the salmon fillet which was the...

Came here after a long wet and cold walk on the South Downs with my hubby. Sat by the fire and had a lovely avocado and prawn salad (we're on a health kick :-)) The salad was lovely, service was friendly. The pub was almost completely full, all those people can't be wrong!! Probably the most popular place to go...

Stopped here for lunch after visiting nearby Sheffield park gardens. Car park nearly full and very tight spaces, but managed to squeeze in! Found a seat and sat down in the restaurant area, had to wait a while before the waitress brought a menu over, she said she would come back for our order, but we ended up ordering at...

Food is great , probably the best ever ploughmans. To avoid disappointment it is best that you book a table as few times before we have been told the kitchen has stop serving food at 1300hrs and at 1900hrs. Beautiful old pub, great beers and as I said before the food is fantastic.

Very pleasant meal and surroundings. We ordered from their excellent value, set menu. Couldn't fault the food or service, and our Australian guests soaked up, the quaintness and atmosphere of this village pub.

This was my second stay when visiting local friends and whilst Lindfield is wonderful and The Bent Arms as a pub / restaurant is perfect the 'hotel' facilities are lacking. You are paying for the location rather than a sumptuous bed for the night. Usually I stay at The Birch which is outdated also but Bent Arms is certainly the...

Enjoyed lunch here yesterday for the first time and would definitely revisit and recommend. Lovely old pub, good food and prices, excellent service although busy. Gardens very pretty and plenty of parking.

I've been here several times and love it. Traditional old fashioned real pub with a great atmosphere with freshly cooked food. Recommend the omelettes and plough mans. Our guests from overseas loved it ... Typical English pub. Recommend for sure.
