Pubs in Steyning
The pubs in Steyning are all within a 10 minute walk from Rosebud Cottage!
The Star Inn, in the High Street, is the newest, yet dates back to the early 1700’s! It’s a cosy place in the winter months, whilst in the summer you can relax outside in their garden.
A little further on you’ll find The Chequer Inn – a historic 15th Century Coaching House. The inn today retains many of its original features, including open fires and intriguing timber-framed architecture.
The next pub you’ll see is The White Horse – perhaps the first pub in Steyning. The oldest part of the building – nearest the High Street – probably dates from the 15th century.
All three of these pubs serve food throughout the year.
Finally there the Norfolk Arms in Church Street. The bar is rather like someone’s front living room!
