About Us


Nestling at the foot of the South Downs, The Thatched Inn, with its picturesque roof of Norfolk reeds and oak beams, has spectacular views over the Sussex countryside to the Ditchling Beacon. David and Leisa, your hosts and their friendly staff pride themselves in offering the best hospitality.

Apart from the standard menu which includes chargrilled steaks and fresh fish, our Specials Menu changes daily.

To complement the food, we have a fine selection of Traditional Real Ales, chilled lagers, fine wines and spirits, soft drinks, not forgetting of course a range of non-alcoholic beverages for the driver.

Families are very welcome with the option in summer of relaxing in our attractive garden.
