This used be be a lovely pub, with live music, great staff which made it a really nice friendly atmosphere. Then that all changed. Now, the staff are most unfriendly & look down their noses at you if you do not fit what they think of as their clientele. They now also serve thai food, which I was very excited to discover when I first heard about it, but since going there twice & having a less than friendly reception from the manager & definitely not the best thai food I have ever tasted, I would whole heartedly suggest to anyone planning a trip to the pub in Lindfield go to the Red Lion. A much warmer welcome will await you there.

This used to be a smashing little pub, a real community hub with live music and great beer. Dark Star beer to be precise. And then some kind person decided to stop all that, to discontinue Dark Star's presence, to reorganise the bar, and change the beers, stick a load of meaningless kitsch up on the walls to 'provide character' etc. The result? It isn't a bad place as these things go, but the beer is on the whole undistinguished, the drinks cost about £1 each more than at other Lindfield watering holes, the Thai food ain't bad if you don't mind sitting at a tiny round table to eat it. The place has been made bland and expensive, the clientèle has gone from being a true cross-section to mostly the bourgeois young, there's no live music any more, the atmosphere has been ruined. Very sad.

This is one of four pubs situated in Lindfield High Street and is probably the best of the bunch if you want a non-musical social atmosphere in which to enjoy a good beer.
When I moved to the village it was called The Linden Tree and was a proper old man’s pub serving a wide selection of ales to quite a limited audience. However, this all changed when The Darkstar Brewing Co took it over, refurbished it and gave it back it’s original name - The Stand Up Inn.
It is now a reformed pub but still retains the feeling of a good friendly local with many regular faces - and a wide variety of age groups. The ceilings are low, the fireplace roars and there are some seats but, as the name suggests, many stand around the cosy bar.
It is the quintessential English pub offering a wide selection of locally brewed, award winning, seasonal lagers and ales. They are also reknowned for their selection of ciders and perrys which are often promoted as part of a festival (with cheese). I think food is now available and there are a few tables in the rear “garden” which seem to have been offered for the smoking fraternity. Other events are also hosted including a pub quiz.
Overall, well worth a visit if you are in the village.

This is in Lindfield, not Haywards Heath, but Qype doesn’t recognise Lindfield as a place for some reason. The beers are so fantastic, Darkstar, absolutely fresh and tasty. I had the Espresso, in fact I think I may have bought a bottle of it, and there was an Oatmeal stout when I went in that isn’t on the website, but there was a beer festival going on in the pub at teh same time, so things are a little hazy.
The pub is old and charming and has all the papers and so on, but I suggest getting bottles to take away and having a picnic on the huge green (why isn’t this place recognised??)
