The Half Moon in Plumpton is a beautiful two hundred year old traditional country pub nestled at the foot of the South Downs National Park, in an area of outstanding natural beauty, ten minutes from both the historic county town of Lewes and the charming village of Ditchling.
A "quintessentially English pub" The Half Moon offers a menu that changes with the seasons and uses only the finest locally sourced produce. At the helm in the kitchens is award winning Chef Richard Willis, who has spent the past decade refining his skills in Sussex and brings with him an unrivalled knowledge of the best ingredients that the County can provide. The cellar is well stocked with the finest local beers from Harveys of Lewes to the local vicar's famous Rectory ales. There is also an extensive wine list of Old World and New World wines that has been chosen to compliment the menu.
The Half Moon is also well equipped to cater for any wedding or event.

We are a fairly frequent visitor to the Half Moon and can honestly say that it continues to tick all the boxes. From the enthusiastic greeting to the friendly service it's a thoroughly nice place to be.The choice of drinks are varied and the beer well kept; the choice and quality of food are also 5*. Clearly whoever is in the kitchen knows how to cook and our choices of Pulled Pork salad and a Crab pasta dish were deserving of the gastro pub title. Honestly a well run pub a cut above the average.

A most enjoyable lunch with friends. The fish were excellent and very well cooked. We were very well looked apart from having quite a long wait for our meal and had to ask twice for the coffee.
