A perfect pub setting for a perfect sunny day! I've only been once but it really left an impression on me - I'd taken the day off with some friends to spend the day seeing more of East Sussex, and when I got back to work the next day I name-checked this place a few times!
For just over £12, I ordered the glazed rump steak which came with skin-on french fries and seasonal coleslaw. It was spectacular, and sitting outside with the sun shining and the Arundel Castle in the background really made this an amazing intro to the area.
I would love to go back one day in the evening, perhaps in the winter when there's a roaring fireplace and get a different perspective on the place.
I was very impressed by this pub, stunning close up view of the River Arun, just a stone's throw behind you by the outside seating area. The pub itself was a fair size and lots of wooden seating areas decked with a traditional decorated feel to the tables. I will say this pub had one of the most immaculate toilets I have ever used.but just one mark deducted.
Some staff here came across as vain, but folks and the atmosphere was very relaxed and the price was not too cheap but not very expensive either, mid table I'd say for value for your pound .
Well I will cap off by saying this pub is definitely worth checking out, if your in the area plenty there to keep your eyes occupied with pictures s views for the Castle across the River Arun.
Used to be great but modernisation hasn't done it any favours. The food and atmosphere isn't very good. The staff obviously are not happy in their workcomplaining about wages, long hours and bad managers!! All while I was trying to order food and drink!!!! 'Tis true, it is nice sitting out by the river..BUT, that's all its got.Shame, could be a nice place.
Lovely country pub in an idyllic setting. You can drive there but there is limited parking. Many people enjoy to walk although it is quite a way but a very nice route. Lovely to sit outside by the river and enjoy the scenery while the kids can play in the little play area. Food is really nice, often a bit of a wait but it is worth it.
An ideal place to go and sit outside on a hot summers day, and sip a nice cool drink by the river. Watch the swans and boats and take in the beautiful scenery, perfect for families too, as there is a good childrens play area.
The pub has a wonderful cosy atmosphere, so is also great for visiting after a walk around Arundel anytime of year. The menu has a lot of dishes on offer to suit most tastes, very highly recommended.
what a beautiful setting right by river.lots of seating available but does get very very busy in summer and sunny days. even in winter take a walk down by river and end up at black rabbit for drinks and food. menu extensive and good food. order at bar with table number and food is served to you. some parking and car park a short walk away. sit by river and watch river life and boats sail by. recommend for great day out
i love this pub, i used to get taken here alot as a kid and really enjoyed myself. the food is yummy, staff friendly, a lovely playground and its located by a river, so you can watch the boats go by. excellent place for lunch if you are in arundel for the day
