Harting Downs

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.

Nearly missed it. Down the hill from the car park at Harting Downs and just after the turnoff to North Marden. A small sign which is easy to miss, points to a very narrow country road that drops off the edge, down into the valley and the Royal Oak in Hookways.

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.
