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 went for lunch to celebrate my wife’s birthday. We were made welcome and quickly shown to our table. There is a lovely selection on the menu and quite an extensive wine list. My wife had a glass of wine and I had a lager. We only went for a main course and desert each. I had the lamb and my wife had the veggie burger. For desert she had sorbet while I went for the dark chocolate torte. We enjoyed everything and the goal came to under £50 which is very reasonable for the quality of food. There is a very relaxed atmosphere and well behaved dogs are welcome everywhere. There is a large car park to the rear and a pub garden which has several tables. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and will definitely go again in the future.

I booked a table for 3 online and also received an online reminder a couple of days beforehand. When we arrived there was no record of our booking, although thankfully the restaurant were able to accommodate us. There is a nice atmosphere in the pub and the young waitress prepared our table and gave good service. The food was only average and nothing that I couldn't easily have produced at home. We were a little underwhelmed, but it was a good spot after a long walk.
