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.

After a walk from the pub down to Plumpton racecourse. It was great to have a warming and delicious lunch at the Half Moon on our return. A very warm welcome, good food, open wood fire and a great playlist all made for a great lunchtime.

Good friendly service. Food choice excellent. Service excellent - allowed to eat and finish before removing dishes. No rush. Good selection of real ales and wines. Food beautifully cooked, well presented and large portions. Very good value for money. Cosy surroundings with open log fire. Will definitely go again.
