Cosy log-fired community-led inn with views of the South Downs. Go for seasonal food, cricket and spit-roast BBQs in summer. One of the best

A proper inn, posh with a hint of scruffiness, a community local that draws a devoted crowd. You get open fires, 400-year-old beams, oak panelling and prints on the walls. There's a lively bar, an attractive restaurant and a club room for racing on Saturdays. In summer, life spills onto a pretty terrace for local meat cooked in a wood-fired oven. There are weekend barbecues, too, and deckchairs scattered across the lawns for ten-mile views over Pooh Bear's Ashdown forest to Sheffield Park. Bedrooms are nicely-priced and full of country-inn elegance: uneven floors, the odd four-poster, lovely old furniture and free-standing baths. Rooms in the coach house are quieter, those in Griffin House quieter still. Some in the main house have timber frames, all have robes and colourful art. Back downstairs, seasonal menus do the trick, perhaps rabbit gnocchi, local pheasant, dark chocolate tort with honey ice cream; breakfast sausages are divine. The pub has three cricket teams that travel the world in pursuit of glory – you may find them in the bar on a summer evening after a hot day in the field.
