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.

This was my first visit and i was tremendously impressed. It's intimate, homely, and unspoilt. The menu has great choices, the food and the beer were exquisite and the service very natural.

Three of us had a leisurely lunch here on Friday 10 November. We were greeted warmly and given a quiet table, as requested when booking.The dining area was cosy, with two woodburning stoves.Service was attentive and unhurried. There was a good choice of wines by the glass. The food two of us had, pork belly, was cooked to perfection and the deserts and coffee (which came with a biscuit, as it always should, or if not chocolate!) excellent.
