Welcome to the Duke of Cumberland

The Duke of Cumberland is a beautiful 16th century pub perched on the side of a hill with breathtaking views. From the gardens, on a fine summer's day, it's just possible to see Leith Hill, the highest point in Surrey.

beautiful gardensToday’s Duke still retains a lot of its original charm. Inside, there are flagstones, brick floors, wooden scrubbed tables and local ales served straight from the barrel. Outside, you will still find fresh trout in one of the many garden ponds.

Come and enjoy a meal, which will be prepared by our award-winning chef/owner Simon Goodman, and choose one of our award-winning real cask ales; wines, spirits, champagnes and soft drinks are also available from the bar to complement your meal.

Our aim at the Duke is to provide you with a peaceful haven in a tranquil corner of West Sussex away from the hustle and bustle of work and everyday life.


Every year, The Good Food Guide team award ‘Editors’ choice Awards’ to eateries who they feel deserve the highest recognition. In 2012 The Duke won this prestigious award!

Pub chef 2010It's hard to think of a more perfect country pub: infectiously welcoming, centuries old, in a glorious location and with all the seasons covered, from winter fires to fantastic alfresco opportunities. Drinkers are truly welcome and Simon Goodman’s menu keeps pace with a nifty mix of the traditional and the cosmopolitan. It’s a simple recipe for success, but not many manage to get it so right
