Come rain or shine – The Sportsman Pub Caters

Originally two buildings, The Sportsman pub dates back to the 1800s, a true country pub. Full of old-world charm, think a lovely village pub with log fires for warming you up on those cold winter nights, or lazy summer days basking in their large country Sussex beer garden.

Or after a long walk

Why not head out of town, enjoy the beautiful South Downs or the many walks around Goddards Green and stop by The Sportsman pub for a lunchtime pitstop afterwards. The menu is seasonal, fairly traditionally based with some modern innovation.

    Nice food, friendly service and there’s a playground for kids to have fun in. Plenty of outside seating for the sunnier days.

  2. Angela Simmonds

    Very good food and a perfect venue for a South Downs walk. Oldie World interior, no frills.. just a good old Sussex pub full of locals and visitors. Just a short trip from Brighton and up the road from Hurste
