In the April/May issue of inBritain (follow the link for the mag’s temporary website), I found this interesting blurb:
“Just north of the village of Lewes in the village of Offham you’ll find The Blacksmiths Arms (4-star), an old world inn famous as the place where Simon de Montfort prepared for the Battle of Lewes in 1264. These days it’s more renowned for its comfortable accommodation and great food. Tel: (01273) 472971; www.theblacksmithsarms-offham.co.uk. Double room B&B from £60.”
