Beautiful, busy old pub with one of the best views ever from the garden. Never disappoints. Booking essential. Site of the very first meeting of The WI in England, (attended by my great grand mother and great aunt!)

There is always something going on here. Still called The Airfield locally as it was a wartime airfield and satellite to nearby Tangmere. There are 2 cafes. The Flying School in the middle of the track and The Control Tower inside the gate on the left. They both serve great locally produced, home cooked food and you can watch the cars and the planes coming and going from both.

Head gardener Tom Brown writes in The Telegraph and has really made his make on this incredible place. If the house is open, try and have a look around! Home of Edward James and a favourite of King Edward VII. Oozes history.. the restaurant is a great lunch or tea spot too and used by locals as a drop in.
