The Castle Inn Hotel Exceptional family-run free house, set in rural Sussex
Welcome to the Castle Inn Hotel
AA 3* Inn accommodation, Bramber, South Downs National Park, West Sussex
New Year Lockdown
We really hope that you are keeping safe during this New Year lockdown.
As I am sure you are aware, we are not able to sell take away alcohol, though you are able to walk into Tesco's (or your preferred supermarket) and just buy alcohol whilst you do your essential shopping. No one has been able to explain to me why a supermarket can sell beer but a pub cannot.
As soon as we can open, we shall. Until then please continue to play by the rules. Keep safe,
Mae, Steve, and everyone at
The Castle Inn Hotel

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.
All rooms are en-suite, except one room which has a private bathroom. All rooms have a flat screen TV, Sky with all of the movies, sports and documentary channels, as well as tea and coffee making facilities. Please let us know well in advance if you’re bringing pets, as we have that option too. Prices range from £45 - £110 per night, including breakfast.
For your comfort and relaxation, we have the Bramber Dining Room reserved for adults (+14). The newly-refurbished Coach House dining room with 32 seats serves breakfast, lunch and dinner; this is our family-friendly dining room. We have a spacious bar area that seats 34 and, when the weather is good, we have a lovely English garden that seats a further 72.
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.
