Welcome to The Coach and Horses

The Coach & Horses is a delightful old pub popular with walkers, country lovers and those in search of good food and drink. Established as a coaching inn around 1660 it sits on the main square of Compton, one of the most beautiful villages in West Sussex.


Run and owned since 1985 by David and Christiane Butler it offers everything you would expect from a well-managed, traditional country inn. There's always a good selection of well-kept beers, and a menu that features many local delicacies such as game and South Downs lamb.


David served his apprenticeship working as a chef at the Ritz and several top class Continental hotels, and brings his culinary skills to a menu uniquely inspired by this experience.


The Coach and Horses is also renown for its ever-changing selection of real ales, sourced from local micro-breweries. Find us in the CAMRA Good Pub Guide.


Whether you're after a decent drink, fine, three course dinners, a sandwich or just a bowl of chips, the Coach & Horses is simply a great place to be.
