Our Heart Is Now Black


As you may have seen on our social media pages it has been a week of big decisions and it is with a heavy heart we are saying goodbye to our old friend Guinness.

But, as one door closes another opens and we are delighted to welcome the amazing Black Heart from Brewdog to The Star & Garter!

With Diageo now believing Guinness to be a “Super Premium Brand”, we have decided enough is enough. Pushing the price of a pint towards £7.50 is crazy but that’s what their arrogance is doing. Having been a lifelong Guinness drinker and kept an excellent pint wherever Jim has served it he is sorry to say “no more”. New abv laws don’t affect Guinness but yet they think it’s ok to increase their price, for a third time this year, and by another 14%? Hopefully other publicans will make a stand too for the sake of our customers throughout the country.

Our alternative as of this week is Brewdog’s Black Heart.

Another delicious, creamy beer this is one not to be scoffed at. so with that in mind, we looking forward to welcoming you with a pint of our new delicious 21st century stout!

This Weekend, We’re Two!


This weekend we’re celebrating two years to the day since we reopened!

Over the past two years we’ve been overwhelmed with the huge support from everyone who has visited both from within the village of East Dean and from further away, with hotel guests coming from all around the world.

We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has helped us get to this point, with the uncertainty of reopening at the tail end of Covid we could never have imagined how well received the pub would be, with amazing reviews and awards we’re excited to see what the future holds!

So again, thank you all again and we look forward to celebrating many more birthdays!

Goodwood Is Ramping Up!


As we move deeper into the Summer, we’re preparing for some of the most exciting events of the year!


With fantastic horse racing, motor racing and more, Goodwood is one of the most exciting hubs in West Sussex and can’t wait for it to roll around each year.

We’ve got the amazing Festival of Speed, Qatar Festival and Revival to look forward to, all in the next few weeks, and with that in mind it’s important to know that our tables fill up months in advance, so it’s important to book early to avoid disappointment!
