The Crown Inn, in the village of Dial Post, West Sussex is a fine dining, real food and real ale gastro pub run by Penny and James Middleton Burn. Located opposite the village green, the pub has a strong and well-established reputation for the excellent quality of its home-made food. Creative Director and celebrated chef James, for many years travelled the world combining his love of skiing with his love of fine cooking. He eventually settled in Sussex, was instrumental in the development of gastro pubs in the county and formed a passion for Sussex people and Sussex life. Supporting local farmers and producers, James prepares seasonally evolving dishes ranging from classic to innovative. Penny, fourth generation of a local farming family, has an historic involvement in the business as her grandparents owned the same village pub in the late 60's and early 70's, and sister Jo and partner Spike of Clayfield Farm, Barns Green, rear the pigs and lambs that eventually end up in the kitchens… The Crown Inn is a food-led pub and there is a choice of four dining areas - each with a different feel: in the conservatory, the bar, the restaurant and the snug. Bed and breakfast is available in the old stable block next to the garden.

Our neighbour had lit a bonfire so rather than stay indoors we went out to eat. We have eaten before at The Crown and liked he garden. We waited for 6pm opening and well worth the wait. Very tasty food served promptly despite having 6 tables by 6.15. Very busy but service did not suffer. All three courses excellent.

We had a lovely evening at The Crown, Dial Post sitting in their comfy conservatory. Everyone was more than happy with the food we had and it was all delicious. The service was excellent and very friendly, efficient and helpful. Will come again.

The arrangements were great. We were provided with a table in a nice position and the service at the bar and the table was really good. Food was a very high standard.
