The Ram Inn Firle

Old-fashioned charm in a stunning South Downs village

This traditional 500-something-year-old pub, sitting in the heart of this quaint rural Sussex village, is a welcome site for sore thighs, located as The Ram Inn Firle is, just off the South Downs Way.

There’s ample outdoor seating space, with tables overlooking the lane and soaking up the afternoon sunshine – there’s sometimes an outdoor bar open on busy summer days – however further seating can be found in the quieter grassy rear garden which is equipped with swings for the kids.

Inside it’s a bit of a Tardis with room upon room of sleek, elegant and comfortable seating for diners. The front bar is also a cosy sanctuary whether in summer, or in winter when the log fire is blazing

The menu is varied and impressive, with starters around the £6–£8 mark and mains from £14 to £16. It’s also good to see that on Sunday it’s not all roasts, with some interesting options to tempt you away from the traditional.

Located a stone’s throw from Burning Sky Brewery, which is located in an old farmhouse up the lane, you really must try one of their excellent brews when at The Ram Inn Firle.
