Welcome to the Castle Inn Hotel

AA 3* Inn accommodation, Bramber, South Downs National Park, West Sussex

Close your eyes, and picture the typical inn in the typical English village… Then that’s The Castle Inn Hotel. Nestling in the heart of the South Downs the charming village of Bramber is a beautiful place to visit, and a restorative place to stay. You could feel in the middle of nowhere here, and yet you’re within easy reach of Brighton (8 miles), Worthing (6 miles), Brighton City (Shoreham) Airport (4 miles), Gatwick Airport (22 miles), Newhaven Ferry Port (26 miles) and road & rail links to London.

The Castle Inn Hotel is a family-run business at heart, whose members include the owners of 20 years, and the next generation – drawn back here after successful careers in the military and City of London. Perhaps it is this breadth of experience that helps guests feel so comfortable, whether they be commercial travellers, families, holiday-makers or people hosting family and business functions. We can be your home-from-home, a restful staging point on a longer journey, or even a secluded getaway in which to plan, debate and hatch future business strategy.

Cask Conditioned Real Ales


Inside the Inn there is “Olde Worlde” furnishing, and an exquisitely kept bar. Boasting some very fine ales and an even more impressive wine list there is something to keep everybody happy, from the connoisseur to the casual drinker. The Landlord keeps a perfect cellar which is reflected by the success the family have had in a twenty-something year, three pub career.

Olde Worlde…

If you want Olde Worlde, we’ve got it. The original build is 17th century with nooks, crannies and probably not a right angle in the entire place.

If you want contemporary, we’ve got it. Cuisine ranges from traditional English, to nouvelle, haute cuisine, vegetarian and world foods. Sky TV with all of the sport, film and documentary channels and complimentary wi-fi are provided throughout.
