But it's not. The worst pint I've had in years. The food wasn't much better. The whole place is scruffy and tired. The garden could be quite pretty with some attention and a few flowers.More

Ate here a couple of years ago. It was empty then - a Monday evening. This time, a Friday, it was buzzing but the atmosphere was good, as was the food and real ale. Friendly staff so all in all a pub to be recommended.

We ate here the first time with our 6 year old, when looking for good food in Crawley. It surpassed our expectations! The food was amazing and presented so beautifully. The owners were welcoming and friendly. We will definitely come again!
