Our Local Area

Located in the heart of Fletching, our beautiful pub is surrounded by exciting and fun things to do in East Sussex for all the family.  Take a trip to Bluebell Railway for a ride on a steam train,  or perhaps take the family to Ashdown Forest to play pooh sticks from the home of ‘Winnie The Pooh’, or we have the beautiful Sheffield Park & Gardens looked after by the National Trust just 10 minutes away.

Sheffield Park & Garden

Explore acres of landscaped gardens, parkland and woodland at the National Trust’s Sheffield Park & Garden in East Sussex. Meet some of the people and learn about the events that have been instrumental in shaping the estate that we see today, fun for all the family!

Ashdown Forest

Ashdown Forest is one of the largest free public access spaces in the South East. It is a great place for walking and enjoying spectacular views over the Sussex countryside and is known the world over as the ‘home’ of Winnie-the-Pooh.

Bluebell Railway

Imagine travelling through 11 miles of glorious Sussex scenery behind a steam engine. Bluebell Railway offers that and so much more for the whole family.

Bluebell Railway was one of the first preserved heritage lines in the country, resulting in one of the finest collections of vintage steam locomotives and carriages – many of which were preserved straight out of service from British Railways.
