The Countryman Inn - Shipley
A rural hostelry with a fine A la Carte restaurant.
Inside you'll find warming log fires in the winter, and cask conditioned Harvey's and Organic Horsham ales in the cosy bar, together with over 30 wines from around the world. Free-range meat and vegetables from local farms make their appearance on the menu alongside fresh fish from Shoreham and Newhaven and local game in season.
Menus are frequently changing, but some popular dishes include Shredded Shoulder of Southdown Lamb; Pan-Fried Wild Halibut; and Roasted Loin of Saddleback Pork. These might be preceded by Locally caught Lobster, home-made chicken liver pâté, or scallop and noodle salad. Shipley's historic eight-sided smock mill is worth a visit, and is just a mile's walk along a woodland bridle path from The Countryman. The mill is so called because of its likeness to the farm labourer's traditional cotton smock of years gone by.
New for the Summer in the Countryman Garden there is an open air Garden Kitchen serving a range of ploughman's lunches with home baked bread, various BBQ Grills, Freshly made Sandwiches and snacks.
