Pubs in Steyning

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!

“Digging up our school French at Chez Joel was a hoot and the food deliciously oozing with butter and cream. Fantastic value too.” (Written a recent guest at Rosebud Cottage).

The fabulous French evening is every Thursday night. Ooh la la!

The cafe is open during the day and Friday and Saturday evenings too

It is in Steyning High Street Just a 5 minute walk from Rosebud Cottage.

Easy walk along Mouse Lane

Easy walks

If you would like a short easy walk head along Mouse Lane…. this runs from Steyning High Street to Wiston House. It is just around the corner from Rosebud Cottage and can be seen in my photo.

There are several footpaths going off Mouse Lane which you can explore. You’ll find a more challenging one on the left that leads up to Chanctonbury Ring

Do watch out for traffic as cars drive along the lane.

The Downs Link Path

If you are would like a longer walk on mainly level paths The Downs Link path could be just right for you. It goes between St Martha’s (near Guildford in Surrey) and Botolphs (near Bramber and Steyning) following old railway routes for most of the way. Where the route ends at Botolphs it joins the South Downs way and The Coastal Link path to Shoreham by Sea.

The route passes through a variety of countryside areas well worth seeing and at Loxwood it is very near the Wey and Arun Canal.

The route is approximately 36 miles long and is suitable for walking, cycling and horses riders.
