Details

Whether you seek a cosy base from which to explore the area's many charms or the kind of relaxed luxury that lends itself to romance or respite, be assured you'll find it here.

In the heart of the glorious South Downs National Park the 250 year old Halfway Bridge is flanked by two historic market towns: Midhurst, home to the Cowdray Estate, Cowdray Ruins and International polo, and Petworth, the antique centre of southern England with its famous country house and deer park.

The perfect place to meet, mingle, linger and unwind, period beamed ceilings, seductive open fires and beautiful wooden floors create an ambient space that overflows with charm and character. Topped off with the warmest of welcomes, you’ll surely want to return time and time again.

As a rural retreat they know that many visitors will have four-legged friends and the Halfway Bridge welcomes well behaved dogs in the bar and in the garden. Only access dogs are permitted in the restaurant and in Cowdray Barns.

Friendly service and excellent presentation combine to create the perfect atmosphere in which to relish exceptional food and inspired cuisine. The menu bursts with locally sourced and seasonal ingredients. Fish, game and traditional English and Mediterranean dishes. There is always something to excite the appetite.

A simple but elegant décor includes fabulous open fires, with dining offered in a choice of intimate nooks. In good weather alfresco dining on their pretty terrace or in the sheltered garden is idyllic. Small group bookings are easily accommodated in one of several private dining rooms.

An excellent choice of ales includes Doom Bar, ales from local Arundel brewery, and also from the Langham micro-brewery in Lodsworth, just two minutes away from the front door. As exciting as it is extensive, more than fifty carefully selected wines and champagnes feature on the wine list. More than twenty of these are available by the glass. They are proud to serve local sparkling wine from their neighbours in Tillington, Upperton Vinyard. A comprehensive range of spirits, lagers and soft drinks is also available, as well as best quality coffee, teas and tisanes.

Providing deluxe accommodation, six superb en-suite rooms and a suite are housed in Cowdray Barns, the inn’s former stable yard. A cleverly styled mix of restful shades, contemporary furnishings and quirky original features, the suite’s decadent bathroom even allows you to watch a movie while you soak through its sliding glass partition! With emphasis on boutique detail and maximum comfort, tea & coffee making facilities with fresh milk replenished daily and locally produced organic toiletries are indulgent finishing touches.
