Tucked away in the West Sussex village of Poynings – the Royal Oak is one of my favourite pubs. It is recommended as one of the best places to dine out on a Sunday in the Brighton area & has been featured in the magazine "Absolute Sussex".

There are barbecues in the garden on Sundays in the summer with stunning South Downs views!
