The Star Inn
Horsham Rd, Rusper, RH12 4RA · Telephone 01293 871264
Rusper has a couple of good pubs and the Star Inn is one. Originally built in 1486, always a pub, it has now expanded into neighbouring cottages. There is a priest hole [a small passage for Catholic priests to hide during the reign of Elizabeth I] in one corner of the pub that leads on to the roof, a large inglenook fireplace, and a wishing well. Lots of history then!
Cosy wood-beamed bar areas with old carpenter's planes displayed. Wide range of food. No garden but there is a paved patio area.
