The Sportsman Pub

a warm welcome, friendly smile & great atmosphere

The Sportsman Pub in Goddards Green, West Sussex. A fresh take on a classic country pub, nestled at the foot of the South Downs National Park. This picturesque setting is the backdrop to compliment good food, a fabulous selection of beers & wine and great memories.

Just 15 minutes away from Brighton & just off the A23, it isn’t far to travel to the countryside for a real sense of escapism. We have a large beer garden for those hot summer months, or two cosy log fires for those cold winter evenings.
