The Hornbrook | Welcoming country pub in Horsham, Sussex.

The Hornbrook Pub

A country pub on the edge of Horsham

Located just outside the town of Horsham or the edge of rolling Sussex countryside, the Hornbrook joined the Hall & Woodhouse family in 2001 when the company acquired Horsham brewer King & Barnes and it’s the only pub in Britain so called.

A great example of a classic traditional English pub, the name dates back to the pre-Norman dark ages, but no-one really knows what it means and although the nine letter word ‘Hornbrook’ has a scrabble value of 18 points, it’s not in the official Scrabble Players Dictionary.    

With a large garden, we’re also dog friendly, as every great pub should be, which makes the pub glorious in the summer and during the darker, colder winter months the cosy interior with roaring log fires, flagstone floors and oak beams, really comes into its own. 

We welcome the Government’s decision that Public Houses can reopen from Saturday 4th July. We have been working tirelessly to prepare for this. Our priority is to reopen our pub in a safe and controlled way for our guests and team. 

It is our intention to reopen week commencing 19th July, to allow for a phased roll out of all of our H&W pubs. The exact date will be dependent on our final preparations to make you and our team safe and comfortable. 

We cannot wait to have you visit after such a long period of closure. Please keep an eye on our website for further details of our exact reopening date and what you can expect.


Opening Times

CLOSED

"The Hornbrook is a medieval settlement to the South East of Horsham.  It is also an Old English Anglo Saxon name from Devon.”

Colourful Coffee

Our delicious ‘Rocket Espresso’ comes from our friends at Extract Coffee Roasters and is the perfect combination of great coffee and good ethics. The special blend comprises 100% Arabica coffee beans from a single farm in Colombia and a co-operative project in Peru, which works to directly benefit the families and communities involved. The result of this is a naturally sweet and full-bodied coffee with notes of chocolate and caramel to finish.

Old Mout Cider

Old Mout was dreamed up 65 years ago by New Zealander Wanda, who, on a cycling trip to England, took a liking to the local scrumpy. On her return to Nelson, she decided to set up a cidery in her shed! 60 years later, cider pioneers Justin and Scottie, inspired by amazing island fruits, developed a range of award-winning flavours in New Zealand.

Our Drinks

Forum Lager

Introducing Forum, the brand new lager from Hall & Woodhouse.

Forum is a 4.2% refreshing Helles style lager, with a delicate flavour from the Weihenstephan yeast and a subtle fruity lemon character from Hallertau Blanc and Huell Melon hops.

The name refers not only to Blandford Forum, the location of the H&W brewery where this new, exciting lager is brewed, but also to a meeting or gathering where ideas and views can be exchanged.  And where better to meet and put the world to rights than in a traditional British pub, where you can enjoy this refreshing drink with friends and family.

So what are you waiting for, make sure you try a pint next time you visit.
