Pub number 4 and note quiet in the same league as the Kings Arms in that it doesn’t feel as loved and therefore not like a proper pub that the Kings is.

This is an Enterprise owned pub with a choice of 3 ales on tap, Doom Bar, Otter Ale & Harvey’s Sussex Best...good pint of Best which was nicely kept.

Soft music playing random types of music....a bit of Johnny Cash never goes a miss

Fairly busy on Saturday lunchtime, I sat in the front bar by the main street to watch the world go by!

Nice old fashioned interior with an original fireplace & wood floors throughout.

The Kings has a nicer feel and welcome about it.

Loos are now fab. Tastefully decorated and don't smell of urine like a lot of pubs. Beer well kept and pub grub is more than adequate. Previous poor reviewers should return.

Not much to say about this one. It was 10 o clock on fridy when me and my two girly friends went in here. It was a bit busy but the layout (u walk in and there's about 4 feet of space before you get to the full width bar) made it seem packed. the pavement outside was full of people drinking and smoking. It took 15 minutes to get served, cos no other customers would let us through to the bar. In the end we had to shout thru three people to place an order. my white wine was warm, and within 3 minutes of getting it, we were being accosted by a drunk local, no one seemed to care. Not friendly. Not nice for girls. Had a glance at a menu but it was over-priced compared to what we'd had, and they said the restauarant was in the cellar. My sister's claustrophobic so that well out! 'A locals bar for men'

One of the only two decent pubs left in Arundel. Always a graet pint of Harveys here but I do wish they would embrace a guest ale policy!

Both the street and the pub show unmistakable signs of gentrification. Appearing to have undergone a relatively recent refurbishment, the largish L-shaped interior of the Eagle can perhaps be described as trendy-traditional. There is much un-scrubbed wood, a real fire surrounded by distinctively blackened bricks, and some of the thirty-something-year-old customers may well have patronised the wine bar across the street before it closed down. Nonetheless, all this makes it a comfortable place in which to sup my half of Harveys Sussex Best Bitter (1.20), which is in good condition. Fullers London Pride is also on offer.

Almost directly across the High Street from the Norfolk Arms is Tarrant Street. Down here, on the left hand side, after a succession of teashops and just past Brewery Hill, stands the Eagle (last GBG entry, 1994). Several decades earlier it was the Lambert and Norris Eagle Brewery tap. According to John Eddlestons (1997), Murderous Sussex, it was in this pub, on the evening of Sunday 17th September 1944, that RAF serviceman Andrew Brown drank the last of his five or six pints of beer that night before brutally raping and murdering the elderly Ameila Knowles in her squalid house-come-junkshop at No. 20. Brown was hanged at Wandsworth Prison the following January, his demise perhaps celebrated in ale by that venerable institution, The Arundel Society for the Prosecution of Thieves and Felons.
