Settled in the sleepy village of Tillington, near Petworth, West Sussex, The Horse Guards Inn is a 350 year old pub in The South Downs National Park.  With rolling views down the Rother Valley, the Horse Guards got its name in the 1840’s, when part of the household cavalry would frequent the Inn, while their horses rested on grass in the grounds of the Petworth Estate under the watchful eye of Lord Egremont.

The pub is relaxed, friendly and informal with wooden tables and chairs, oak beams and stripped floorboards.  In winter you can roast chestnuts foraged from Petworth Park on one of the open log fires, play board games at the bar and forget about outside with a warm glass of spiced cider.

On sunnier days, enjoy the hidden garden slumped in deck chairs or on straw-bale seats or have lunch at shaded tables on benches covered with sheepskins, eating beside the herbs and vegetables you’ll find on your plate.
