Important Notice - Please be aware that on Wednesday 29th November 2017 The Greatham Inn is undergoing a change of Management. The current owners of the business, Denise and Tony, are moving on to pastures new and new owners have been engaged. The new owners, Marilyn and Alan, will be taking over directly from when Denise and Tony leave. Many of the regulars will already know Marilyn as she has been working behind the bar in The Greatham Inn for the past 6 months. The intention is to close the pub for 1 day only: Wed 29 Nov; this is to allow for all of the administration involved in the handover. As from Thursday 30th Nov until the New Year it is Marilyn and Alan’s intention to open as normal and continue with Denise and Tony’s previously advertised events (Joe Jammer will still be appearing on 23rd Dec). They will also honour any previously booked meals or functions. This website will be updated in due course; but until then any enquiries made through this site will be directed to the new owners.
The village of Greatham is first mentioned in the Doomsday survey book of 1086, where the Manor of Greatham is mentioned - at the time, it then belonged to William the Conqueror, and was part of the area of hunting land now known as "Woolmer Forest". In 1903 the Army moved into nearby Longmoor and now the only pub in the village, The Greatham Inn, suddenly got a whole lot busier.
The pub has obviously changed a lot since those days and now has an excellent restaurant, a child (and dog) friendly garden and a regularly changing selection of real ales, draft cider and beers. Greatham is part of the South Downs National Park, an area of outstanding natural beauty and a favourite with both ramblers and cyclists who are more than welcome to "pit-stop" and refuel at a local village pub. There's a lot to do in the local area so why not pay us a visit and relax for a while - there's also free wi-fi if that's what you need.
We are normally open from 12:00-15:00 and from 17:00 till 23:00 Monday to Thursday, and from 12:00 to 23:00 on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
We have revamped our menus of freshly cooked food for both lunchtime and dinner.. Look it might seem a long way away but our special Christmas Day Lunch menu (click here) for £55.00 pp is very popular and numbers are strictly limited so call now to reserve a place. If you're looking for somewhere to have your family or firm's Christmas Lunch our Xmas Party menu (click here) is now available for booking from 1st December for £25.00 pp, call to book a table and date
We serve food Tuesday to Saturday from 12.00 (noon) to 3.00 pm and from 6.00 pm until 9.00 pm and our excellent Sunday roast lunches are served from 12.00 (noon ) until 5.00 pm. PLEASE NOTE we do not serve food on Mondays.
