We have been to many local pubs in Sussex, but always come back to The G & D in Houghton - staff are so friendly, Gavin & Carole that run the pub always on hand for a warm welcome & a chat. The roasts are amazing, plentiful & so very tasty (highly recommend the roast beef!). Great pub, friendly atmosphere... More

My children and I went for lunch here, as we were staying locally, and could not fault anything. The staff were friendly, the meals reasonably priced with a broader choice (duck, pheasant etc) than many pubs and we had a relaxed, warm and most enjoyable meal.

We had to book a rather late (2.30) lunch at the George and Dragon as 2 members of our party of 10 ran in the Worthing half marathon. When we made the booking it was suggested that if we informed them of our food main course choices (if they were to be the Roast lunches) then they would ensure their... More

The George and Dragon is a splendid old building located on a hill a short distance from Amberley. The ambiance inside the pub is excellent with plenty of 'nooks and crannies' in which to find a table. The staff were really first class, welcoming, courteous and helpful. there was a choice of three draft real ales, two from the Ringwood... More

Had a fantastic lunch here. The pub was busy but there was room for us to eat. The views over the Downs are fantastic. If we were here in summer we could have eaten on the terrace. Our food was delicious, hot and nourishing. Good portions too. Lovely veg. The dessert we had, bread and butter pudding with marmalade and... More

Warm and friendly. Good menu however advised not all selections available. The meals chosen were very good quality followed by lovely desserts. Only downside was the service a little slow ok if your not in a rush.
