See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

The bar area that is open to the public is known as 'Black Peter' and the hotel featured in Sherlock Holmes' 'The Adventure of Black Peter'. Prior to takeover by Fuller's, this prominent building in the centre of the village was part of Gale's estate. It has since been tastefully re-furbished, providing a large dining area. A function room is also available. The bar area features a display of old bottled beers. Aside from the regular beers, a third handpump is used for another changing beer from Fullers. Fuller's bottled beers are also stocked and a selection of Belgian beers. The hotel makes a good base for exploring Ashdown Forest. 3 Handpumps selling mainstream ales
