The Crown, Horsham

Two disappointing pub experiences in Horsham this afternoon. The Black Jug – an occasional venue for me after meetings in the office complex nearby – turns out to be one of those sour-faced pubs that doesn’t let in children under 10, even into the beer garden. They also make some snotty remark about “well-behaved” children, which makes me want to have a tantrum in their saloon bar.

So we headed on to the Crown, a nicely done up pub on Carfax, where we got super-friendly service and very average food.
