Spacious pub near the centre of Handcross Village. Emphasis is on food. Two guest beers usually available. The original house dates from 1280 but was rebuilt in 1540. Very well known centuries ago as it was one of the best known coaching inns on the famous Brighton road. It was also known for its foreign liquors which seemed to appear during the night with unpaid duties! There is also a small panelled room where Lord Nelson and Lady Hamilton used to have secret liaisons
