The Firle Estate has remained intact for
over 500 years and encompasses several
picturesque downland villages with
traditional pubs, a highly regarded farm
shop and of course Firle Place itself. Firle
derives  from the Anglo-Saxon word ‘Fierol’
meaning ‘oak covered land’ and sits on
ancient downland chalk landscapes at the
foot of the Firle Beacon.

Firle is proud to be home to the
wonderfully atmospheric Ram Inn, the
perfect setting for an ushers’ lunch, serving
delicious English food with an emphasis on
locally-sourced ingredients. Here, you can
also enjoy excellent local beer and ale,
including those from the international award winning Burning Sky brewery,
located a stone’s throw from the pub
