The Gardeners Arms | A Cosy pub & restaurant in West Sussex

The Gardeners Arms Pub

A cosy pub restaurant on the edge of rolling Sussex countryside

Situated in the heart of the South Downs, opposite the north gate of the South of England showground, the Gardeners Arms is a traditional and homely pub restaurant.  

Dating back to the 17th Century, the pub is cosy in the winter, with roaring log fires and traditional oak beams and glorious in the summer, with a beautiful garden; we even have deer visit occasionally and our own grape vines!

Indeed, the three dimensional Inn sign at the pub recreates the symbol of the Order of Free Gardeners, a masonic group (now extinct) dedicated to sharing the secrets of gardening.

With a focus on great food and hospitality and dog friendly, as any great pub should be, the Gardeners Arms really is a home from home.

"It is utterly forbidden to be half-hearted about gardening.  You have got to love your garden whether you like it or not."
Sellar & Yateman
