Six of us together with an 18 month old arrived for lunch having already booked. A very welcoming host showed us an ideal table with child seat in place. I saw no less than three log fires roaring away - one in each cosy dining room; there may have been more! I chose a delicious bread selection with unusual dips...

What a great find! We have been passed a number of times, but at last we stopped for lunch. A great menu of rather different things from the average pub menu. Great service and amberanc, with unusual bits and bobs decorating the bar. We will return!

We had a fantastic meal for my husband's birthday. The food was good quality and nicely presented. Definitely up market pub food so the prices were reasonable. The only negative was that our trout main course was only warm when it reached the table. Would have been able to spend longer enjoying it had it been hot on a hot...

I often meet friends at the Horse Guards on a Friday night . The food is stunning and the service amazing .The atmosphere is totally relaxed. You need to book and the parking is tricky . The decor for me is a bit dated but that is a minor detail.

We have just visited the Horseguards in Tillington and had another superb lunch. We started with potted trout and delicious dark bread, fantastic ham hock, chick pea soup, Followed by perfect roast beef? Beautiful vegetables, also, scrumptious pork, and roast shoulder of lamb. Food was amazing Can't wait to go back Great atmosphere full of life Lovely decor.

We're local and after many outings over the years have found that this pretty pub is the most consistent for food for many miles around. It's just won best dining pub in the 2017 Good Pub Guide. Went with discerning friends who chose a light lunch menu. After finding our first choice had sold out (at 1240) we were offered...

Excellent food and service. Burger was very good and venison was delicious. Good cheeseboard. Lovely old pub, cosy. Very busy at lunchtime during the week, so glad we'd booked. Dog friendly too and convenient for a walk in Petworth Park.
