Merrie Harriers

Quaint, probably horribly expensive, Sussex village. Check out the old red phone box which is now a library, an information booth and someone was giving away iris tubers in a box! Only in England…

This pub is the only one for miles around but it is still fab. A cosy snug with log fire, typical pub-décor dining bit (dark wood, horse brasses, maroon wallpaper), a function room and a massive garden looking out over the Wealden countryside and miles of electricity pylons. Ignore those. It’s beautiful.

The food is great. We only had lunch there on the first day of spring. Huge doorstops and a mountain of filling, plus chunky chips and salad. Scrummy. Other satisfied diners were tucking into venison stew, onglet steak and pheasant and partridge pie. Could have been happily ensconced for hours but we were rambling so we had to walk off our lunch. Go in spring or summer to sample the great outdoors, not only of the pub, but the surrounding countryside. You won’t want to visit a city centre Wetherspoons ever again.
