The Fox And Hounds, South Godstone

Not impressed at all! Called in for lunch for the first time in over a year and were welcomed very nicely and shown to our table with our drinks. After half an hour a gentleman came to take our order and informed us that because everything was cooked fresh it would be a while before we got our two meals. That was fine so we ordered garlic bread to nibble on whilst we waited. Another half hour went by and we got the bread. We then waited a further hour to get luke warm meals served on cold plates. No explanation was given when we asked where our food was but by some miracle it appeared within minutes of asking. (obviously had been sat in the kitchen waiting for ages to be served) Nobody came to ask if our food was okay and nobody brought the mustard which was politely requested. Needless to say we didn't want another hour waiting for desserts and coffees nor did we want to hang around to pay so we went to the bar to pay our bill. If only the man at the bar had not made the foolish mistake of asking if we had enjoyed our meal! NO WE DIDN'T was our reply. He wanted to know what was wrong so we told him. With this he knocked off the bill one of the meals but we still didn't really get an apology. The dining room was not all that busy when we arrived at 12.30 and there were a few other tables all complaining. Loads of good pubs in this area so think they should buck their ideas up. We won't be going again and certainly will not recommend to friends and family. Would have given it a 0 rating but had to give 2 just for location and quaintness.

The Bell Inn, Outwood

Had lunch here last week and found it to be much more welcoming than others had led me to expect. The food was good and well presented, plenty of choice on the menu including smaller portions which is great if you don't have a large appetite. The bar staff were very nice and extremely helpful. I didn't think it was over priced in comparison with other pubs in the area, all of which I have lunched at with friends. I would go again for sure. Plenty of car parking bays to the rear of a very attractive pub with nice area outside half of which was covered which helps if you fancy sitting outside and not sure what our weather is going to do.

The Snowdrop, Lindfield

Called in with an old friend today and we both enjoyed our lunch. The pub was beautifully clean which we both commented upon. Staff were very welcoming and very helpful. The lunch time menu didn't have a great deal of choice but what we had was cooked and presented nicely. I had no idea this place existed until I saw it in LIVING magazine and am now glad I found it down a little country lane. I will definitely go back again to see what is on the evening menu. Car park at the rear and flat easy access for my elderly friend made it a very good choice all round.
