Outside of The Sportsman

Come rain or shine

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

Breakfast at The Sportsman

Serving breakfast from 8.30 in the morning The Sportsman is a good spot for early risers looking to make the most of a day in the Sussex countryside. Those looking to grab a quick bite and go can enjoy some excellent Horsham coffee with a bacon or sausage sandwich or a continental pastry. Lingerers can settle into The Sportsman pub’s own full English, a hearty plate overflowing with butcher’s sausage, streaky bacon, black pudding, baked beans, very naughty fried bread, fried eggs, hash, mushrooms and tomatoes. Vegetarian breakfasts are also available and they can all be made a little tipsy with a drop of brunch punch, either mimosas or bloody Marys, or in fact anything from the bar.

    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
