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.

Here at The Sportsman, we LOVE our doggies! Dogs of all shapes and sizes are welcome anywhere inside and outside the pub, including our pods. We even have a Hound Wall of Fame; a fabulous selection of pictures of all the dogs that visit. So bring along your picture perfect pooch for a snap shot!
