|This is under new management / ownership.|
There are some differences - previosly it was a restaurant that offered beer, now its a pub, some beer - lacks imagination that does poor food.
No micros - ' what are they ' was the reply.
Clearly had a quick changeover, as they forgot to complete / undertake any cleaning prior to opening.the corners are full of cobwebs and tables are sticky.
Pretty basic stuff really.
Beer , well the usuaul culprits, nothing special, and all a bit dull.
Food - don't bother.The menu reads well, but just doesn't deliver !
Fish Friday [ pre frozen ] & fries ! - described as 'traditional'
Note to Handsome Pig, get a chef or even a cook in, who can actually cook, and deliver what you say ''on the tin''. Mashed pots is simple , but complete with lumps is just unacceptable, and plain lazy !!...& you expect us to pay for that ....
A good drive out to find it - don't bother - just drive on past - or stay with where you know.!

|now called the handsome pig. |
real ale is back on. Gone back to being a pub, but has an odd layout.
worth a visit

|This is not a brewery owned place - which is great ! It is beautifully maintained.|
There is no Fullers , Youngs or any of those awful other so called 'ales ' by the big five out of London.
We enjoyed a good pint of JW Lees, IN EXCELLENT CONDITION, and following some negotiation enjoyed some lovely food, which was excellent value for money.experiencing the specials early bird offer.
Food very good, certainly would not bother with the Red Lion or DOC, both just down the road again.!

|definitely set up for the restaurant goer....however, had ale on pumps when I visited, maybe no more keg beer?|
if a nice day, you can sit outside, though half the garden was sealed off for the barn - whether that was temporary as there was a function due to take place, or whether it is now the norm, can't say for sure.
as there is no bar as such, don't go there for a drink on a wet day...otherwise you'll be sitting in a restaurant supping beer..or getting wet outside..not for a session, but ok if passing by..or on a country pub crawl..

|Now purely a restaurant so you must book a meal if you want a drink. Only keg beer on offer so no real ale or cider (source: Sussex Drinker - Spring 2011).|
