Run by the Hamiltons, proudly owned by the Silcocks family!

The Thatched Tavern is a charming 16th century free house. The pub is dog and child friendly, boasting a large range of drinks, private parking, a huge garden, play area and glamping cabins. 

When Martin saw that one of his old favourite pubs was up for sale in 2012, he was quick to sacrifice everything and make the purchase. In 2018, Martin’s daughter Maddie and her husband Tyler took over management of the pub. With the support of family and friends, their vision is to breathe new life in to The Thatched Tavern. Progress has been slow on the renovations, as shortly after they took over the pub, Maddie gave birth to her first child – Oscar. The vision is to increase accessibility, re-start the kitchen and develop a sustainability policy - all helping to make The Thatched Tavern one of the best proper English pubs West Sussex has to offer.
