The Horse Guards Inn
Ranked #1 of 1 Tillington B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 January 2018

A charming traditional old English pub with log fires, delightful staff, good beers and exceptional food. Near Petworth House, opposite the pretty church, a bit off the beaten track and well worth the visit. Definitely one for return visits.

Room Tip: We were only dining, so I have no idea about the rooms!

Having eaten here several times, we found today the food not great and not value for money, the service was obviously without any training. The wine was expensive but the house wine was ok.. We shall not rush back sadly.

Ambiance good but an effort to get menus and then order. Very keen to sell drinks - asked 4 times. We have been eating here for 15+ years. Food standards are generally good but prices peaked a long while ago and now for the wealthy only. We returned for an excellent Bouiliabaise but lousy steak - A Rib Eye at £22.50 was tasty but only half was grisle free and edible. I asked for veg as I don't eat salad and I got a heap of extremely over salted cabbage. I would have expected a small portion of two veg. Didn't stay as we always do for sweet. Not sure I want to return.

I took two visitors from France and Germany for a drink in a typical English pub. They had done their research and were very keen to visit The Horseguards. Unfortunately this is no longer a pub but a restaurant. There was nowhere to stand to drink our beer and despite 50% of the tables being empty we were not allowed to sit down. We stood awkwardly in everyone's way, the bar staff were harried, the waiters and waitresses were busy and kept having to squeeze past us and we were left feeling unwelcome and unwanted. Go here if you want to eat but if you want a pub - forget it.

Room Tip: didn't sleep there

This wonderful little pub provides excellent gastropub food with a number of unique dishes on the menu. There are also some decent real ales. Hospitality and service are excellent. The only downer is that most dishes are fairly pricey and the beer is too. Having said that, we popped in for a light lunch and there is a light lunch menu with some inexpensive dishes. I had a bap filled with masses of pork and apple accompanied by fries for only £8.50. So do give this place a try!
