Middleton-on Sea, West Sussex:
A pub, but only just pubby enough! Clearly very food-biased (“please wait here to be seated”), this was already filling up as we arrived just after midday on a Sunday, and was chaotically busy by 1pm. It’s rated for its carvery, but I can’t comment; we had sandwiches and beer in the garden while the chaos of families with children continued inside. The garden was lovely though, as was the beer, food, and staff.
 A later visit (in the week) saw it a lot calmer, and the carvery was excellent.
