This small pub consists of a single room wrapped around the bar, with a couple of booths at the back on one side. The floor is bare boards and the walls are pale cream. Wines are written up on a board on the wall; at least 16 choices of each of white and red on Kake's September 2011 visit. There are picnic benches on a large outdoor patio to the side of the pub.
Kake visited on a Thursday late afternoon in September 2011. There were only a few people in, but the place is small enough that it still felt quite lively, especially as one of the people was a cheerful (but well-behaved) child. '80s music (David Bowie, The Cure, Adam Ant, Erasure) was playing, fairly quietly.
Four real ales were available: Deuchars IPA, Harveys Sussex Best, Spitfire, and Brains Best. They also had various things on tap including Leffe, Hoegaarden, and Addlestones Cloudy cider. A pint of lime and soda was 90p.
Food is served at least some lunchtimes and evenings (Tuesday evening food started at 7pm on Kake's September 2011 visit).
According to a notice seen in September 2011, quiz night is every Tuesday at 8pm.
Accessibility: Step-free to get in, though this necessitates a tight turn just in front of the door. Step-free to bar, seating area, and toilets once you're in. There was a door which might have had an accessible toilet behind it, but I didn't get a chance to check.
