The former Kendal Arms was transformed into The George Payne just over two years ago, earning it an award for Best Turnaround Pub of the Year at The Publican’s Morning Advertiser’s Great British Pub Awards. Dog and family-friendly, it ticks all kinds of community boxes with events that include open mic nights, a running club, live music and DJ nights, Halloween celebrations, street parties and much more. They have also designed and built an Astro-turfed children’s play area with a Tardis and cottage play-house. There’s a solid, good value food list with a special celebration of Sussex cheese, pairing the likes of High Weald’s Brighton Blue, Twineham Grange’s Sussex Charmer and Alsop and Walker’s Sussex Camembert, at £2.50 a portion, with a sizeable choice of Ports by the glass. For cask beer lovers Harvey’s is permanently on draught at £3.70 and guest ales come from a roll call of Sussex’s finest – Downalnds, Bedlam, Hurstpierpoint, Langham and Long Man.
