About the Pub

This one bar pub was renovated & refurbished in 2013. It has a pleasing light & airy bar which makes good use of the available floor space. Lovely log burner used in the winter. The pub overlooks the harbour and is near the river footbridge. There are pictures adorning the pub walls, some are of old steam ships. The pub stands a short distance from where a cross-Channel ferry service of steam packet ships operated from Littlehampton to Honfleur between 1863 and 1882.

Several guest ales available, with an emphasis on independent micro breweries. At least 4 real ciders in stock plus craft cans in the fridge for those who like stronger beers.

Fresh food prepared on the premises, vegetarian, vegan and allergies catered for.
