Christmas in Ditchling

When it comes to Christmas, there really is no place like the pub.

And our olde-worlde pub (nestled in the heart of Ditchling, Sussex) really is the perfect spot to spend the festive season.

With our open fires roaring, the team in good spirits, the scent of mulled wine in the air and all your favourite festive foods a-cooking, our cosy pub is built for the season.

Whether you’re looking for a Christmas sit-down lunch with work colleagues, hosting a seasonal catch-up event with friends over winter cocktails, or you’re dreaming of that eye-popping, traditional Christmas Day lunch with the family, Phil and his team are always happy to host.

If you have travelling family and friends, or simply need to rest your weary head after a night of Christmas celebrations, we’ve got you covered with six country style rooms for you to stay in too.

Merry Christmas indeed.
