We've lived in these parts for 15 years and consider that the Holmbush is the best pub we've ever been in and that includes the City of London. The food is excellent and the owners so friendly. It's one of the gems of Sussex.

Congratulations, Anna, Martin an all the staff. You run probably the best pub restaurant in Sussex. Excellent food and service. You did us so proud for our recent 60th Wedding Anniversary. Catering without a hitch for 15 persons all with different choices. Well done and thanks.
