Situated north of Hurstpierpoint at Goddards Green, the Sportsman public house has been serving great food and real ales to the heart of West Sussex for some time. Formerly, two pubs, the Magpie and the Sportsman, the Grade II listed buildings were knocked through into one over recent years and this traditional ‘beer house’ has been part of the villages heritage for some years.
Renowned for its warm and welcoming atmosphere, this locals pub provides the perfect back drop for idyllic countryside walks as well as providing a great range of annual events for village folk and visitors alike.
Dating back from 1800, think lovely log fires for warming you up on those colder winter nights, on the other hand this is a great retreat in the summer for those lazy summer days where you can appreciate the best of the Sussex countryside.
