With the Riverside being situated next to the historic Houghton bridge on the river Arun, directly along the South Downs Way, we are extremely popular with individual walkers and walking groups alike.
Rain or shine, walkers are always welcome to stop and enjoy the relaxing surroundings and views across the South Downs and river Arun.
We are more than happy to arrange block bookings for walking groups to ensure a quick and efficient service upon arrival.
In June we had a large group of walkers who were walking the South Downs Way for charity, they popped in, fuelled up and then set off on their way! One of the ladies was so in love with our lemon drizzle cake she told everyone she passed on the way back!
20th June saw a visit from Downs Art Group who spent a couple of hours painting and sketching the fantastic views from the lower garden beside the river, the cows even obliged by coming to the riverbank edge to be in the paintings!
Each year the ever popular annual South Downs Way walk http://www.southdownsway.com passes right by the Riverside and is a popular oasis for hungry and thirsty walkers!
