The Swallow's Return, a country pub in Worthing
We’ve got everything you need from a country pub near you.
The Swallow's Return occupies buildings once known as North Barn, next to some important ancient track-ways which linked South Downs settlements from very early times. More recently, in the 18th century a windmill was constructed nearby and it was believed that the miller, John Oliver, used the sails of the windmill to signal smugglers.
Our menus are full of hearty favourites and country pub classics, as well as our seasonal dishes, and we’ll be ready with a well-stocked bar, including cask ales, fine wines and British gin to suit very taste - which will taste all the better when enjoyed either in our beautiful gardens or by our crackling log fires.
Charming country pubs in lovely locations
Our pub is at the edge of South Downs National Park. It is a converted barn and takes its name from the many pairs of swallows that return to the farmyard to nest every summer.
Whether you’re out walking your dog or just exploring the local area, there’s always plenty to do around The Swallow's Return.
