An ancient and truly beautiful house, the Gardeners Arms is situated on the edge of rolling Sussex countryside.
The Gardeners Arms is to be found in the leafy village of Ardingly, near Hayward's Heath, and close to Wakehurst Place National Trust and the South of England Showground. This listed building is a traditional pub with low ceilings, original sash windows and two cast iron fireplaces that wouldn’t look out of place in a gothic novel. There is also an area to named 'The Cottage’, with its own feature fireplace, which is available for private hire for parties of up to 35 Guests. Outside the pub sits an alfresco dining area and patio, a pretty sun-trap dining area, designed to make the most of the sunniest days of British Summertime.
The Gardeners Arms is blessed with a team of talented chefs who prepare their dishes daily and a friendly onstage team offering the very best welcome. With an excellent reputation for our food and service and a beautifully restored interior and legendary hospitality, this is the perfect place for lunch, dinner and drinks. The team are sure to make you very welcome.
We love dogs, as all good pubs should! Well-behaved dogs are welcome in our bar and outdoor areas. Wi-Fi access is free to all our guests (subject to availability).
The Gardeners Arms is proud to be part of the Hall & Woodhouse family. For more information on Hall & Woodhouse and to find other Hall & Woodhouse houses click here.
