The Earl of March pub is located in Lavant and serves freshly prepared seasonal food from local sources, a selection of local real ales and a cellar of good quality wines.
The Three Horseshoes at Elsted (pictured), is a little further away but is well worth the effort. The pub is completely unspoilt and has a lovely garden with fabulous views of the Downs escarpment. It also has a good selection of real ales and serves excellent bar food. It is possible to walk there from the carpark on the top of Harting Down. There is a spectacular view from there and the walk back up the steep scarp face of the Down will help to compensate for that helping of their legendary treacle tart which you just couldn’t resist!
