The Gardeners Arms

The perfect Sussex country pub opposite the South of England Showground

Dating back to the 17th century, the Gardeners Arms is how we all imagine a country pub should be - cosy in the winter, with roaring log fires and traditional oak beams, and glorious in the summer, with a beautiful garden. The pub even has its own grape vines and wild deer visit occasionally! Just minutes from the beautiful botanical garden at Wakehurst Place and opposite the South of England Showground (which regularly hosts events such as the International Antique and Collectors' Fair), it is a quintessential English country pub that celebrates the joy of horticulture. In fact, you’ll find pin-ups of famous gardeners in the loos, along with a host of other quirky décor touches that bring the character of this pub to life.
