About The White Horse Inn, Sutton

Re-opening from Saturday 4th July!

The White Horse is the very definition of a British inn. A charming pub with elegant garden terrace and eight en suite guest bedrooms all to be discovered in the rolling countryside of the South Downs National Park at the very heart of the village of Sutton.

Our Grade II listed 18th century free house has been recently renovated to create one of the best places to drink, eat and stay in West Sussex.

We know that first impressions really count, and our friendly team offer a very warm welcome the moment you arrive, helping you to relax immediately. We serve an extensive range of beers, wines and spirits at the bar and offer menus featuring locally sourced, seasonal produce, all complemented with great service.

Our rooms provide very high-standard contemporary comfort and the essential dreamlike bed topped with the best linen and indulgent duvet to ensure a comfortable night’s sleep. There are great showers with generous supplies of Noble Isle toiletries.

Visit England awarded us five stars in summer 2019.

Families and dogs are welcome and we’re perfect for walkers, cyclists and horse riders exploring West Sussex.

Begin your escape today. We’re just five miles from Petworth, seven from Arundel, ten from the Goodwood Estate and only an hour and a half from central London.

Lovely atmosphere/location and excellent food. Little expensive but well worth it for the high quality, presentation and service. Sad person that I am I even ordered the hand wash used in their toilets when I got home online. 👍

We really enjoyed our stay in terms of welcome, service, facilities, comfort, quality. Dinner was tasty and nicely presented. Covid-secure protocols were very well thought through. The 4 (rather than 5) stars for atmosphere is just a reflection of the subdued new normal everywhere. We look forward to a return visit.

The management is taking the cleanliness of the place very seriously, from the room to the restaurant/bar area. As a practicing nurse, it is very important to me. We have been eating out since the restaurants/pubs are allowed to open. I must say that the White Horse Inn, Sutton has taken the Covid-19 guidelines to another level. The people in the restaurant are wearing gloves for food handling and taking them off if the they are not serving us. They are also using a hand sanitiser before putting their gloves on. People who are eating out can view their menu on line by scanning a bar code, they also have a hard copy of the menu should people prefer it. Once you’ve finished with the menu, it will get torn and discarded! It really is a great way of preventing transfer of pathogens. There is a good selection of food on the menu and ours is cooked to perfection. The people served us (dinner on 14/09/20 & breakfast on 15/09/20) were very friendly and accommodating. A complimentary shot after our dinner round off our day. The doors to the restaurant and bar areas are open to get a good air flow. The whole area looks and smells clean. The room we stayed in was very clean including the en suite bathroom. A fridge in the room with selection of bottled water was a nice touch. We have enjoyed our stay and we would definitely be back and maybe become one of their regulars!

We walk regularly with the South Downs Society throughout the county and the White Horse is one of our favourite pubs. We turned up one particularly wet day last winter soaked through and dripping everywhere and the staff could not have been more welcoming. The pub is surrounded by great walking, the food is excellent and the beer is well kept. .

Billy is one of the best maitre d's in the area and looks after his customers with genuine concern. One small gripe is the cost of a glass of house rose ... £12 is a bit over the top and doesn't make for an inexpensive pub meal. It's more than most good roses cost by the bottle! Great food though! The pub needs to age by 10 years as it's like sitting in a hotel reception. A log fire and candles would add to the atmosphere.

Restaurant Response

Hi Jules, Thank you for the excellent review and helpful comments. We did want clarify for other readers that a standard 175 ml glass of our House Rose is £5.50. A large 250ml glass of our more expensive Provence Rose is indeed £12, with the bottle costing £36. The pub was extensively renovated in 2018 and is now developing the patina of time as more and more customers return. We have two glorious log fires that we'll be lighting as soon as the temperature drops a little. We think it was twenty-six degrees on Monday evening. Long may the Summer continue!

My husband and I had a fantastic date night at the White Horse. The service was faultless, friendly and welcoming. Creating a great "Friday night" atmosphere as well as adhering to social distancing measures and table placements is quite an achievement. The food was incredible, portion size was good and presentation was appealing. We are looking forward to returning. Thank you to both front of house and kitchen staff for a super evening out.
