Weekend Escapes
Read our review of The Crown Inn, Dial Post, nr Horsham

There are two main reasons to visit the beautiful village of Dial Post in West Sussex: the world-famous Knepp Estate, and The Crown Inn.

Combine both with a stroll around the landmark rewilding project taking in free-roaming deer, cattle, pigs and ponies along with the odd wild white stork, then head to The Crown after you’ve worked up an appetite. Hashtag perfect Sunday (or Saturday, or any day for that matter!).

The award-winning Crown, run by the lovely Penny and James, has a reputation far and wide for the quality of its homemade food. It’s the beating heart of the village and sits directly opposite the village green.

Expect a daily menu of pub classics and seasonal specials, which will feature fresh, seasonal, local and even foraged produce. The pub itself is warm, classy and welcoming with a mix of diners and locals, and landlady Penny is expert at creating a cosy atmosphere.

Good news for dog lovers – Fido’s welcome too and the beer garden and patio are simply made for sunny days watching the world go by.

Fancy crashing over? There are four gorgeous rooms above the pub, plus further accommodation in the beautifully appointed Coach House for families with a fully equipped kitchen. Coupled up? The Hayloft sleeps two and has a compact kitchen, living space and cosy loft style bedroom, both have a private patio.
