We were really looking forward to our stay here and left mightily unimpressed after a single night. Lunch booking on arrival was a muddle and staff attitude left much to be desired, noticed a group of 5 arriving at 12.45 for a 1pm reservation being told bluntly that they were too early despite us being the only other diners in that part of the dining room. The pub area is quirky but the quirkiness officially ends there unless you include the following features for guests choosing to stay overnight.
Guests entrance totally overgrown with thorns making an already challenging set of steps all the worse especially at night, you then have to literally kick the door open as it's sticking so badly, you often then find yourselves in the way of guests or staff going between dining rooms, you then have to open a really scruffy, again sticking door outwards again blocking the thoroughfare and climb the staircase to the double or twin room, No offer of assistance with luggage offered. The brass bed was cute and had pretty furnishings, but that was the only redeeming feature in what could have been a lovely room if some thought and money was spent on it. No room information pack. Zero thought with tea and coffee offer in room, only coffee creamer no uht milk or card to say pop down for fresh milk, 2 tiny stale biscotti to enjoy with it. 8 Earl Grey teabags and 4 other mixed bags, since when was Earl Grey the most popular? Clearly no thought just topped up with whatever. Bathroom was large but boring with filthy blinds and window ledge, frosted windows, a grotty toilet seat, deep bath but only hand held weak pressure shower spray, the toiletries looked nice. The bedroom carpet had many bad stains and whilst I love natural features the position of wardrobe behind the beam meaning access is seriously restricted. The kettle which had a PAT test sticker from 2011 on it was an oversized domestic version and it was kept in the wardrobe because the only place suitable to use it, was on the floor. No filtered/mineral water in the room. No proper ironing board available only a dirty table top version. Window frames were in poor condition but forgivable considering the age of property. Staff smoking under window made for an unpleasant smell when we opened it. The extraction fan was clearly loose and faulty as it was a deafening and continuous squeaking and screeching. It was borderline whether we stayed but I thought it will get better when we come back from our first of 2 nights at Chichester Festival Theatre and be more the cute peaceful pub we had expected it to be. We returned at 11.30pm and we were noticed but not greeted as we navigated the thorns and dilapidated doors. There was still some noise from bar as expected but disappointingly the extraction fan was still churning out the incessant noise. The bar closes at Midnight so as Midnight passed I expected the noise to reduce but instead the music went on and the voices got louder, I assumed that it was just getting the rooms ready for the next day but it was clear from the conversations that this was more a social occasion. At 12.45am with the extraction fan now at least muted, this total disregard for guests staying above the pub was too much so I called the number for downstairs and asked when we might get some rest, I was told by Ben that this was a pub and I should expect noise which I would agree with but not way after the official closing time of Midnight. The noise levels reduced after the call to what you might expect from closing down duties. At 4am I was woken by a high pitched squeaking and tiny footsteps almost certainly mice or rats, above, beneath or all around us, we left the light on from then on and the noise stopped so may have been inside the room. We left early the next morning to get some proper rest. There is not a single reason that I could share with you to recommend staying here so I suggest unless you liked the sound of what you have read, that you give this Pub of the year 2017 a swerve for B and B. The Cottage option may be a lot better than the twin/double options as had it's own private entrance away from disturbances.

Tillington is an amazing Sussex village, the pub is is so pretty, in a great setting, beautiful garden, and charming inside.
The parking is very difficult. On the day we visited, a Tuesday lunchtime, they were at least one member of staff short, getting a drink at the bar took ages and servidce was generally poor. One special was off, replaced by a burger, which we ordered; when the two arrived, they has run out of buns and one burger had a'bun' made out of slices of bread with crusts cut off, blatantly different to the other brioche style one. We should have been told, at least apologised to when served. Otherwise, all the food was of a good standard, but expensive, as was the over priced, but well presented. wine list. Such a shame, a gastropub for people with more money than sense, although the bearded barman tried his hardest. I was with a local brewer and restaurateur, who agreed with my every sentiment.

We first visited this pub 40 years ago. It was very good then, and the present owners have created a great ambiance. The food was excellent and we enjoyed it very much. Our second bottle of wine, a Brouilly, was very good, but sadly, the white Douro first was corked, but only commented on by us when one of our party tasted it a bit later. The landlord agreed and it would have been much appreciated if he had offered even a little recompense. We were troubled by wasps, and killed 6. We did mention this but it didn't seem to register! I do think that this needs to be addressed, particularly as one of our party does have an allergy. We would have given top marks for food, but the other 2 issues did affect our overall enjoyment.

Surprise birthday party, booked the three letting rooms for two nights. The cottage sleeps 4 in 2 doubles, the other 2 rooms are en suite doubles. Real country feel, very clean and a bit quirky: beams big duvets, low doors.
The bar is part local pub/ part restaurant and further dining at the side. If poss eat in the gardens. Great atmosphere, staff were welcoming and there's an overall sense of fun. The food is very good in fact we were booked elsewhere on our second night but stayed put! Also a good, safe play area for smaller children.

Room Tip: Although the cottage sleeps on 2 floors it is open plan. The upstairs rooms are bigger

It was such a delight to arrive at this little country pub, after the long and winding road I travelled along the country lane. (There is an easier route!)

Delicious Roast beef, cooked medium rare with local veg etc. We didn't have dessert but having eaten indoors, we took coffee out to the fantastic little garden. Unique setting and very relaxed. I could recommend it more and so glad I found it as it was halfway to meet family.
