A traditional country pub in every sense currently categorised as a 'Great Pub Great Food' outlet. The stag offers great food, excellent beer and a wonderful location in a historic building that attracts a wealth of demographics from near and far.
Located three miles north of the historic market town of Petworth and nestled in the border country of West Sussex, Hampshire and Surrey, the Stag really is set in a beautiful part of Southern England. The area is considered to be amongst the most “walkable” land south of the Pennines with the main two attractions being the South Downs Way and Ebernoe Common (which is now a Natural Heritage site). Many of the locals partake in traditional country sports and the Stag is a frequent meeting place for local hunts, it is especially key on Boxing Day. Other local towns within easy reach are Midhurst in the Rother Valley and Arundel,and the main shopping towns are Horsham, Guildford and Chichester.
An attractive two storey detached property. There is a beautiful garden at the front of the pub and dining/drinking covers at the roadside which are sheltered by a large 4m square jumbrella. Internally the pub is divided into four areas; the main bar with stunning open fire place, ante room, drinking room and the dining room. The pub has historic links dating back to the 17th Century and it is in a location that still feels untouched. There are not many pubs left that are like the Stag, indeed only recently a national CAMRA meeting agreed to add the Stag to ‘Part One’ of the National Inventory of Pub interiors of outstanding Historic interest.
The Stag will be most suited to a couple or a family. The ideal people for this pub will be sociable and dedicated to enabling the pub to be central within the local community. A strong food background would be preferred in order to sustain the trade which the pub already boasts and a love of Real Ales is a real plus.
