The Green Man Horsted Keynes, is a traditional Sussex Pub in a beautiful Sussex village

There are few more quintessentially English experiences than drinking a pint of ale in a century old public house, where the walls could tell you stories of the past.

Tucked away, Horsted Keynes is a sleepy village set in beautiful Sussex countryside.

It’s a wonderful area for walking, cycling and classic car meet-ups, and if that’s not enough, we’re lucky also to have a station which is part of the famous Bluebell Railway.

In fact you can now take a Bluebell Railway train journey all the way from East Grinstead and enjoy lunch at The Green Man.  What a great adventure!

There is extensive outdoor seating both at the front (set under umbrellas, to defend against the summer sunshine) and in the rear beer garden.

The Green Man has been a popular Sussex watering hole since 1851.  In fact, on November 8th 1939, The Queen visited Horsted Keynes to check on the plight of evacuated children during the war years. Green_Man_Horsted_Keynes

We’re not sure whether she found the time to visit the Green Man or not but you can imagine her thinking “well done children, keep those allotments watered” – “right, where’s that pub”.
