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.
For Groups of 10 or more please contact Alan on: 01403 741383
Lovely food is a great setting with attentive staff. Think the owner was on that night who greeted us and took our payment at the end and was really nice and gave the evening that added touch. Will return!
Worth the trip. Food very good as usual, always a good choice of specials and pub favourites.
Lovely Country Pub, which is hard to find these days.... Varied Menu, food good, we had the roast beef which was plentiful but veg a little disappointing but would def go back without hesitation
Excellent all round, lovely lunch and would definitely recommend
We enjoyed a really excellent meal in comfortable surroundings with first class service. What more could we have asked for? Till the next time!
Delicious food and friendly and efficient service. Thank you for a lovely evening. We look forward to our next visit.
You had a very busy evening, but your staff did well in bringing the food to our table.
Thank you for another lovely evening.The food as always was great and the atmosphere welcoming.Great value.
We took two visitors to lunch and they were absolutely delighted with the food and the service is the lovely countryside setting.
Always a reliable excellent meal.
Never disappoints. Alway good food and service.
always welcomed by staff food lovely fresh and hot. The pub is charming a lovely place to visit.
Very enjoyable meal in great surroundings
Never fails to deliver excellent food and friendly service. We usually have a mix of diners with us including vegetarians and those following a gluten free diet. The Countryman make it easy for us all to dine together and all have three courses if we want. It is actually a rarity to follow a gluten free diet and be able to have a choice of three courses!
Very pleasant landlord and staff. Nothing is too much trouble. Made to feel welcome.
My wife and I have been to The Countryman several times now. Every time, the service has been excellent and the food outstanding. Quality produce cooked to perfection and served with a smile. We'll be going back soon, I'm sure!
Great food and service. We will return very soon.
My wife enjoyed her pate starter & steak meal as she needs to be careful with food combinations. I thought my sesame prawn toast starter was top price for what I had.My crab meal with a salad was straightforwardly presented. Enjoyed the music and atmosphere.
As usual,the food was excellent-slight criticism parsnips with fish seemed odd-my wife left hers.Unfortunately our waitress forgot the jug of water I ordered with our wine.She also forgot our dessert,and I had to go to the bar where she was having a chat to get her attention.She rushed to the kitchen,and we waited a total of 35 minutes for our dessert.The music was good,but due to forgotten water we watched it for an hour with nothing to drink.
Food was excellent, will certainly be back.
Amazing food as always.
Delicious food and great service!
we had a fabulous meal as usual at the countryman, dissapointed with one first course, but that was explained to us by the lovely young lady who served us. Excellent service, and as usual a fabulous meal. thankyou lynn
Please please change the music!!
Friendly and welcoming. Sunday lunch was good and although busy the meal came promptly.
