Our Food and Drink
The Crabtree food menus reflect the seasons of beautiful West Sussex using as many fresh local ingredients sourced from fields, farms & hedgerows as we can. The majority of sea fish and shellfish come straight out of the English Channel at Shoreham. Fresh fruit & vegetables hail from Sussex, Kent, Surrey and Hampshire. Meat and poultry come from as far away as Surrey and as near as the fields next to the pub. Our good friends at Trenchmore Farm (over the road) not only supply us with beef but cider too!
The Crabtree menu changes seasonally and the Sunday lunch menu changes every week.
When weather allows you can enjoy the delights of either of our gardens to the rear of the pub – both with views over the beautiful Sussex countryside. Whether dining alfresco in our new courtyard or sipping a pint of seasonal ale with friends or colleagues in the flower garden, you will find the Crabtree experience a relaxing and rewarding one.
We serve our tasty bar snacks all day 12noon-9.30pm (Mon-Sat) and 12noon-5pm (Sun)

The Crabtree nestles in the heart of beautiful West Sussex countryside and is the perfect place for a quick drink or an evening’s merriment. Even in the depths of an icy winter our roaring 500 year old log fire & wood burners lend a cheery warmth. While on balmy summer’s evenings the flower garden and courtyard offer stunning views over the local fields and woodland.
The Crabtree’s carefully considered wine list boasts some impressive titles from Sussex, Europe and the world, but ensures all palates and purses are catered for. Rest assured we haven’t forgotten how to pull a great pint either, with two draught ales, two premium lagers and craft lager to choose from. Add to that Mortimers Cider, Guinness and a fair array of bottled beauties including Silly Moo (Cowfold Cider) and a fantastic spirit collection – you are spoilt for choice.The Crabtree Drink Menu
