Nevill Crest & Gun – Eridge

Inside this amazing pub at Eridge you will find atmospheric, beamed rooms and roaring fires along with a lighter garden room which overlooks the lawns. This is an extremely popular pub set in a 500 year old building is walking distance from Eridge Rocks and the Broadwater Warren Nature reserve.

The pub also sits just off the Sustrans 21 cycling route. This route takes you on quiet back lanes through to Groombridge where you can then go off-road along the Forest Way disused railway line all the way to East Grinstead….or return in a circular loop in time for some well earned food and a pint perhaps. Time well spent!
