Dating back to the 1500s, Hangleton Manor is the oldest domestic secular building in Brighton & Hove, and takes second place to the Royal Pavilion as Brighton’s most listed building. With such a rich history, it’s not surprising that this captivating building is riddled with fascinating features, not to mention weird and wonderful stories.
Thankfully, the building’s past is still evident in its many curious features and quirks. With its 16th century wood panelling and floor tiles, Jacobean fireplaces and stunning Tudor plaster ceiling, the manor is a treasure trove of curiosities. Even the hallmarks of its past owners remain – the Tudor ceiling is adorned with the heraldic emblems of the families who once lived there, including the Bellingham’s demi-stag and bugle horns.
The so-called ‘Commandment Room’ on the ground floor contains a Tudor version of the Ten Commandments, intricately carved into its ancient oak panels. Believed to have originally been a private chapel, this room also boasts one of only two piscinas found within private houses in Sussex, which would have been used during the Communion service.
Suffice to say Hangleton Manor offers a truly unique and historical setting for any occasion. With our hearty home cooked food and award-winning ales, come and let the history sink in and the hustle and bustle of modern day life melt away. And if the sun’s out, you can take advantage of the stunning garden… but watch out for the ghost pigeons!
A cosy and charming house, the Hangleton Manor is conveniently located, just a short drive from Brighton & Hove and is the perfect venue for drinks, lunch and dinner.
We love dogs, as all good pubs should! Well-behaved dogs are welcome in our bar and outdoor areas. Wi-Fi access is free to all our guests (subject to availability).
