About Countryman Inn
The Countryman is surrounded by stunning open countryside set close to the small village of Shipley, the 3,500 acres of farmland owned by the Knepp Castle Estate provides the perfect backdrop for a pub lunch in the beer garden or an evening in front of the fireplace.
Inside you’ll find warming log fires in the winter, and cask conditioned Harvey’s and Organic Horsham ales in the cosy bar, together with over 30 wines from around the world.
As we do not have a dedicated play area or family room with high chairs we apologise if you find our restaurant is not suitable for very young children. However, you are more than welcome to bring your own personal booster seats for younger diners/children.

A quiet Monday evening visit but, even so, the food and service were still at their usual high standards.
I had heard about the The Countryman Inn on BBC Surrey (southern counties) Radio. We were not disappointed. The food, drink and service were all top notch. The venison and pheasant pie was to die for. We’ll be back.
Great as always
Very friendly staff. Good quality food. Varied menu.
Never disappointed. We had a lovely family meal here on Christmas Eve. Lovely atmosphere but not too noisy which is important as my Dad has Alzheimer's. Great food and drink, friendly efficient service
Lovely food and very good service. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
Online reviews not accurate unless we caught the Inn on an off day!!!
A find!!! Cannot recommend too highly. Looked for a meeting point convenient for friends and us. Found The Countryman on google. Did additional research and decided to visit for lunch. Glad we did. Will be returning again very soon.
Booked 19 people for a Christmas meal, really easy to book, menu selections made and sent prior to dinner and on the night the service was very good. Polite, friendly staff and a lovely atmosphere, made for a brilliant evening! Great quality food at a really great price - would recommend to others and will be going back again in the future.
Great food and excellent service.
We have been coming here for over 20 years. An excellent meal as always.
We come to the Countryman quote often, Lovely food and great service. You just feel at home.
As always, perfect atmosphere, perfect food and perfect service - thank you for a wonderful experience once again
Thanks lovely fish curry great pub and we love all the fresh produce you have for sale too
Always know I can rely on The Countryman
Lovely pub with very good food and a very friendly if overstretched waitress. Dessert portions were massive
Very helpful owner and staff, lovely food and lovely pub. Consistently good service and food over many years. Deserves its popularity.
Food and service was faultless. We dined with our 10 year old daughter who was treated so kindly by the staff. The landlord came to see us at the table, checking that we were having a good evening and that all the food was to our satisfaction. He then surprised our daughter by returning to the table and presenting her with a chocolate selection box! He was such a lovely man. Definitely going back, on a regular basis.
Lovely country pub, friendly, great service, lovely food will definitely recommend.
My wife and I love the Countryman Inn. The food is first class, the fish here excellent and on a par with some of the best I have tasted. We always look forward to making return visits for food and drinks.
Good as always. Splendid food and excellent and charming service. I wish you would let us back into the quizzes.
Great lunch as always .staff Very attentive. Great service great foid
Has to be the best place for lunch. Always fresh fish on the menu and cooked just right . One of my friends fav at the moment is the pies that are sometimes in filo pastry. As usual the girls are always ready with a welcome smile and great service. How can you not keep going back 😂👍🏽
Thank you for a lovely evening and excellent service. Overall food was good, starters and main course very good but have put 4 * not 5* as some of the puddings were disappointing. Tropical meringue quite dry and not very tasty. Bannofee Sundae also disappointing. Hope comments are helpful. Would definitely go again.
