The Coach & Horses is a traditional, privately owned country pub located in the beautiful South Downs National Park. We are in the village of Compton, on the border between West Sussex and Hampshire. The pub is popular with visitors, walkers, cyclists, country lovers and anyone who appreciates good food, real ale and a truly authentic pub. It sits on the square in one of the most beautiful villages in West Sussex.
Run and owned since 1985 by David and Christiane Butler, we offer 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.
Our menu is unique, with a distinctly Continental influence.
We run a seasonal menu. In the summer, you'll find lighter foods so you'll see more fish on the boards. Come winter, game sourced from the local estates has a greater presence.
Of course, popular items stay on the menu all year, and others make an appearance depending on the availability of local ingredients.
We sell lagers, wines and spirits, but we are primarily known for the real ales we offer from local artisan breweries.
Our choice of ales is seasonal too. In the summer, lighter beers are available, ideal for drinking in the sun after a walk on the local hills. In the winter, we stock some darker ales and porters - perfect for a winter's evening drink with friends, or getting to know the locals by the fire.
