Country Drive

It was a toss-up between the Sunday Roast and the Chicken and Ham Pie which wafted pass on it’s way to the table behind me. But it was the Roast Lamb and mint sauce I finally ordered.

Sunday lunch in the South Downs


Nearly missed it.

Down the hill from the car park at Harting Downs, just after the turnoff to North Marden. A small sign which is not easy to see, points to a very narrow country road that drops off the edge, down into the valley and the Royal Oak in Hookways.

Best country pubs in West Sussex


A small country pub, set right next to the South Downs Way. Perfect for sitting out in the garden on a beautiful summers day for a spot of lunch, or for huddling next to the log fire for a roast dinner on a crisp winters evening.
