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.

excellent light lunch in the sunshine - thank you for a great first pub experience for well over a year!
Absolutely fantastic food can't remember the last time I enjoyed a ploughman's lunch so much my wife had the individual camberet , amazing 😋
Always great to go there for excellent food, service and, at the moment, fresh air in beautiful surroundings
Really lovely, thank you!
Very Covid compliant, great food and lovely garden to enjoy it in.
Unfortunately due to the "last minute new tier regulations" We couldn't have our meal. However, farm shop still open, and is well worth a visit!.
We had a delicious meal on Saturday evening thank you.
Excellent all round great food and value for money
Great meal from start to desert !!
Food was great and plenty of it .
Despite these tough (Covid-induced) times you're all having to work through, your team continue to provide excellent service and some GREAT food. Thank you for what you do - it's much appreciated :-)
The usual excellent service, food, and inspite of Covid restrictions atmosphere was still there. Lucky to live so near to this establishment. Love it.
Staff were lovely & food was fab atmosphere not really anyone’s fault just COVID issues, had a very pleasant couple of hours
It feels like we’ve been in lockdown forever and to get back out to our absolute favourite restaurant was super exciting! Despite the new restrictions, the warmth and service flowed as well as the food and wine! I have NEVER had a bad meal here! Beautiful food with wonderful service! The only place to eat in Sussex!
Great food. Friendly efficient service. Fab farm shop.
Very nice ,first time I've been out since beginning of march
Well looked after, our first pub lunch after lockdown, superb!
Great food, great service and we felt safe
Our 2nd Visit was as good as the first Very Tasty food. Cooked to perfection. Very Nice Pub/Restauraunt. We look forward to visiting again after lockdown
Lovely service, delicious wholesome food and a warm welcome. We'll be back when we are eventually allowed . Best of luck in the meantime.
my party & I were very impressed with the cosiness of the entire premises & surrounds. T he menu was to our delight & the portions amble. The service was very much to our liking, bit of chatter & banter. We shall no doubt make other visits now that we live so close. Can't wait for lockdown to end.
Excellent management and understanding. Quality maintained. Above expectation experience. Well done
Really enjoyable Sunday lunch. Prompt and friendly service in a classic British pub. Roast was excellent. Will definitely return.
The food and service is always superb! We have been dining here for years and intend to keep doing so. Highly recommended!
