New Look & New Menu Makes The Cowdray Arms A Top Choice

Are you looking for somewhere new to wine and dine?

The Cowdray Arms located between Crawley and Haywards Heath which was fully refurbished in April is welcoming old and new customers with a home from home atmosphere in the historic pub.

The pub’s staff and décor make it feel homely and the atmosphere is one of relaxation, whilst bringing high-quality, locally sourced produce to a fantastic new menu with fresh and lively dishes for all tastes. 

The exciting dishes have been designed by Michelin star chef Stephen Crane who also is based at Ockenden Manor – the new menu suits the informal homely pub surroundings. 

The menu remains seasonal and working with local companies including Grange Farm Shop and Lindfield Coffee Works, has meant they have really bought together a community feel.

Just five minutes from Maidenbower, Worth, Turners Hill, Handcross and Balcombe, the refreshed, new looking pub is a fantastic asset for the whole community of West Sussex.  

Whether you just pop in for a quick drink, enjoy a tasty hot meal or even take part in their regular weekly quiz night there really is something for everyone at The Cowdray Arms.

The food really does stand out against other local pubs being reasonably priced for the size and quality of the meal, you can enjoy a selection of tapas to support a vast array of gins and exquisite mixes. 

Bar staff do not believe in a gin menu, they create bespoke drinks to suit your taste, so do ask for a recommendation when you pop in and watch them create a beautiful and fantastic tasting drink! 

We liked a fruity flavour and they created a zesty Sicilian creation using Chase Pink grapefruit and pomello!

Along with Panko prawns and some deep-fried halloumi which were fantastically light and full of flavour the salt-beef salad made a light but tasty starter.

The main menu has something for everyone from traditional pub classics like fish and chips to steak to The Cowdray Arms specialties including the fisherman’s scotch egg. With fresh flaky fish and a lovely runny egg, it really is a main not to be missed and often their first to sell out!

Not only did the starters and mains deliver but if you have room their deserts were also a firm favorite with a lovely melt in your mouth homemade chocolate brownie that definitely hit the sweet spot.

So, if you have not tried it yet I would highly recommend visiting The Cowdray Arms and see for yourself what a local pub should be like!
