The building occupied by the present inn was one of several timber-framed, partly tile-hung farmhouses in the centre of the village, opposite the village pond. It became an inn under the sign of the Red Lion by 1788, and adopted the name Fountain Inn soon afterwards. In the early 19th century, the building was extended: an extra wing was added on the north side, perpendicular to the original structure, in brick. In contrast to the tiled roof of the older part, the newer wing had a slate roof. At the same time, the façade was altered from its original timber-framed appearance: the Georgian style, popular at the time, was adopted. Author Hilaire Belloc, who wrote extensively about Sussex in his fiction and non-fiction works, mentioned the Fountain Inn in his novel The Four Men: a Farrago; he wrote approvingly about the ale. In 1979, the pub was used to film part of the video for Wonderful Christmastime, Paul McCartney's Christmas song with his band Wings. Actor Sir Laurence Olivier lived just south of Ashurst, and the Fountain Inn was his local pub. The Fountain Inn was listed at Grade II by English Heritage on 9 May 1980; this defines it as a "nationally important" building of "special interest".

Our only requirement of our guests is that they are nice and friendly. (Our licence requires one other thing, that you must be over 18 years of age). Come for a cosy time. Enjoy a drink, have some good honest grub, bring along some old friends and make some new ones. Relax and read the paper, play cards, challenge a group of strangers (sorry, 'friends you have yet to meet') to Monopoly or Cluedo or just sit back and enjoy people-watching. You won't be disappointed. Furry friends very welcome - the paw print on our new coat of arms isn't there by accident.....

This charming family-run country pub between Petworth and Goodwood has a wealth of history dating from the 16th Century when it was a coaching inn on the former roman road from London down to Noviomagus Reginorum (Chichester). It features original wooden beams, a solid oak bar and a large haunted inglenook fireplace that still creates a pleasant ambience. Good real ales, including LocAles and draught cider, are on tap. Locally sourced home-cooked food featuring fish and game, whenever possible, is on the menu. Cream teas and other snacks available in the afternoon. Families are welcome and there is a large garden to the rear. A large function room is available for hire. Additional history:- It was also formerly known as The Swan and until 1814 the inn belonged to the Manor of Duncton. In 1840, the property was purchased by William Gill from a Mrs. Duffell, and records describe a brewery being attached to the inn. The rateable value at this time of the "Swan Inn, Smithshop and land" is recorded in the Duncton Parish Rates as £23-16s. Following William Gill's death in May 1849, his wife Mary occupied The Swan until 1863, when ownership passed to Chamberlain. From 1864 to 1868 it was occupied and leased by members of the Bridger family. John Wisden, renowned Kent, Middlesex, Sussex and England cricketer, who launched the Wisden Cricketer's Almanac, purchased the property in 1867. During his ownership, the property was renamed The Cricketers, and was leased to James 'Jem' Dean. In his will of 1871, John Wisden directed that 'As to the house and premises known as The Cricketer Arms to allow Dean to remain a tenant for so long as he should think fit'. James Dean was born in Duncton in the early 1800s and died in The Cricketers on Christmas Day, 1881, reputedly sitting in the Inglenook fireplace with a pint of beer in hand. Jem Dean gained recognition as a roundarm fast bowler who played for Sussex, All England XI and then helped set up the United All England XI with his long-time friend John Wisden. After his retirement from the sport in 1860, he was appointed as an umpire by the authorities at Lords.

Since then the building has seen many changes of use and has been a private house as well as a convalescent home for the well heeled of London (no change there then). In the 1930s the Village House became a guest house and tea room - a recently found advertisement dating from this time boasted of... en pension terms of 2 ½ guineas to 4 guineas per week-according to room and season... and... rooms with such modern conveniences as electric light. Today our rooms still retain their old world charm and atmosphere, but we try to offer a little more luxury than in the 1930s. If you love walking, we are ideally located for both the South Downs and Monarchs Way, which both offer fantastic views across the south downs and Sussex coast. If golf is your passion there are two challenging golf courses nearby, or if it's horse racing, then Fontwell and Goodwood racecourses are within easy distance. Findon is also the home of the Gifford Racing Stables who produced the famous Grand National winner, Aldaniti.

In the 19th Century accommodation was provided in eight chambers ranging from gentlemen's rooms with curtained four-post beds to the drovers' quarters containing straw beds or palliases. Servants also lived on the premises, usually numbering around six according to the inn's documents from this time. During this period the Chequer consisted of a Smoking Bar and a Gaming Room.

- Bell in Ticehurst
The original part of this 16th century coaching inn on the London to Hastings route dates from 1540 and underwent a major extension and restoration in 2011, all carried out by local craftsmen, with plans for more to come. The history of the pub is represented by contemporary posters and general history is illustrated by an eclectic range of artefacts, such as a wooden back carved tollgate notice, a portrait by the Victorian artist Margaret Carpenter, the first ever female RA exhibitor and a bell dating from 1790, cast in the Whitechapel foundry. Kipling wrote poetry here. There are Graham Sutherland prints throughout the pub, which consists of a main bar including a restaurant area, the assembly room snug upstairs and the old stable converted into a function room, (see attached picture). Outside there is seating on the front terrace ,a rear patio area and garden designed by a Chelsea Flower Show gold medalist. The guest bedrooms are inspired by the derivation of the village's name which means "wooden hill where goats graze" and so each has a silver birch trunk featuring in the decoration. The pub has been developed in an idiosyncratic style to which it is difficult to do justice in words; if you are in the area it is well worth visiting for that reason, in addition to enjoying its beer and ambience. Breakfast is served 7.30-9.30 weekdays, 8-10 at weekends.
