    Stunning garden views and beautiful individually designed bedrooms.
The Griffin is an old pub with the most magnificent garden
in East Sussex near Haywards Heath. Fletching itself is a charming village and the pub is one of the older buildings in it. The bar is well stocked and cosy under medieval beams and roaring fires in the winter. In the summer, the garden has wonderful views over the valley. The food is excellent, and the menu varies often. It is not the cheapest menu but is in line with better pub pricing. Locals from around the area use the pub and the atmosphere is one of jolly fun and games whilst still having a fairly formal staff feeling.
Rooms are not large but have everything you might need to be comfortable. The whole pub is dog friendly as well. Breakfast is cooked to order and there is a very good continental selection offered separately.
              Fantastic atmosphere, locally sourced food and finest real local ales.
  A true country inn, tucked away in the heart of Hampshire’s rolling green.

 A Review of
Pubs with Rooms...
The Anchor is a friendly and ancient pub in-between Farnham in Surrey and Alton in Hampshire. It is surrounded by fields and has a charming and large garden which in the summer is a delight to sit in. If you are a gin fanatic, it prides itself in its selection. The bar is cosy, and the dining area is part of the main bar, so it still feels like a real pub. It is well attended by the locals who are all very friendly and welcoming. The food is first class and not expensive for what you get, and the chef is both imaginative and traditional. If you are a real ale lover, this is a good place to come as well.
The rooms are cosy and well stocked and the beds really comfortable. It is dog friendly throughout the pub which helps to enhance its atmosphere of a proper country pub. Rates vary, but it is not expensive by any means, and provides one with a real break from the hurly burly. Breakfast is excellent, cooked to order and plentiful.
