    For me a decent pub either has to have good beer or good food, but ideally both.

    As best I can recall, The Lamb had neither, although I fully concede it served a purpose!
    I can't recall exactly which drinks it served back in the day, but I'm pretty sure it was Foster / Strongbow as their main lager / cider.

    The Selden used to sell Stowford Press as the cider on draught, but it was some abomination (Carling Cider I think) when we popped in. The landlord did say they were changing to Thatchers soon though, which although overly sweet is better.

      I'm struggling to think of any genuinely decent neighbourhood pubs in Worthing.

      I was in the John Selden recently with @Papa Lazarou and @Insider and it's OK, but let itself down badly on the cider front.

      Are there any others?
      George and Dragon in Tarring. Round the corner from me, and the ciders in there are fantastic

      Of course, yes. I like the G&D a lot.

      The Vine always feels like it should be good but disappoints.
      Please buy from Amazon via this link. Thanks.

      On the subject of the Downview, I was a holding manager in the place 9 years ago, when Maggie broke her foot. Awful place, with an awful landlady, only positive to being there was that I ended up settling in the town after the hold. Two months I spent there, and I think I've set foot in the place once since. It's a bloody hole.

      Absolutely. The Vine is a colossal disappointment. It SHOULD be a great pub, but whoever has had it over the past few years have really messed it up. Another favourite of mine is the Brookstead Alehouse, ok it's a micropub, but good god, the beer and cider is fantastic.

      Is there anybody on here who is old enough to remember when it was one of Worthings best and busiest pubs, probably mid to late 60s and very early 70s. Sad to see such pubs be left to go downhill and then closed and become offices or flats.

      I don't know what you mean precisely by neighbourhood pubs but The George & Dragon and The Vines are nice imo.

      edit: others got there first. To be fair I don't go to pubs much now but probably still remembering The Vines as it was in the '90s and early '00s, with the great beer festival, hog roast and the people that used to come in on an evening selling snacks (Pepperamis, prawns, crab sticks etc) out of a basket.

      The Becket has upped its game in recent years with decent food and a reasonable choice of beer. Was refurbed about 3-4 years ago.

      To continue the theme, The Elms in Broadwater has gone and The Southdown seems to be having a lot of building work done so I'm now fearing for that one too. The Old House at Home (Broadwater again) seemed to be a good neighbourhood pub though. I quite like the John Selden although it's a bit dreary. The Selden Arms in town is the choice of serious real ale drinkers (of a certain age).
      The Bull and The Mulberry in Goring both seem to be hanging on in there. The Alex and The Egremont (both in town) have both had some money spent on them. There's also a new bar opening in Goring Road.

      Both need to up their game in my view. Not even to either for a year or so but felt like either could be replaced in the near future by housing of some sort. The Bull has location in its favour and it's not too big so residential development would be difficult. But the Mulberry is on a prime large site that would make a lot sense as a residential development of some sort.
