This is a friendly split level bar with a fish & chip shop/restaurant (eat in or take away) attached. The pub is named after a chalk pit (opposite) which used to contain lime kilns (some photos are on display in pub). There's a large garden and car-park. Buskers play every Sunday night. A quiz is held on the first Thursday of every month. Guest ales change regularly. There's no food on Sunday evening or Tuesdays but there's a Sunday Roast on Sundays 12 to 2.30.

There's a toilet for disabled customers.

The pub is actually located in Willisham parish, though it's geographically nearer to Offton. The convoluted boundary between the two parishes here (see the map) adds to the confusion.
