Stayed here on Bank holiday weekend. Accommodation really clean, spacious as stayed in room 1 and restuarant very good. One thing that was difficult was the car park the pub is always busy so parking was always an issue which was annoying. Definitely would stay again though.

This is a favourite of mine. Excellent local produce, delicious fish and seafood. A fair price for great quality food and a lovely selection of wine! Service is friendly and warm. Very reliable highly recommend.

Chose for an anniversary stay & meal. Really beautiful location, accommodation nice but so it should be at a starting £175.00 ... Meal in restaurant was disappointing ... Didn't deliver on descriptions and too overpriced for the actual dishes delivered ... 3 miniscule scallops on plate for £13.50 - when questioned if this as normal got told scallops were just... More

Whilst staying at the Lockgate Dairy my wife and I ate here. I had the thai fish cakes to start which were incredible homemade sweet chilli sauce was lovely. Steak main course was perfectly cooked and the chips were crispy on the outside soft in the middle. Quite expensive but worth the money.

If you like to wait for one hour forty minutes for your lunch(on a Tuesday), are impressed with drizzle on you plate and would like to pay London prices for your food then this is the place for you. A very pretty setting near the water.

We dined in the garden on a lovely day and it was a very pleasant location. However, the food was very expensive. The crab was excellent and the scallops were good. The fish soup was as expensive as a top end Paris cafe and was little better than a very ordinary fish stock with a single king prawn dumped in... More

Great location , great pub and even better food. We celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary here with supper and B&B. Cracking place and really friendly staff , they all seem to enjoy working there. Food was excellent , amazingly fresh and succulent lobster which was a brilliant main course. My only regret is that we were only there for one... More

Greeted by friendly staff. Lovely old pub situated beside the water. Table we were shown too was very near to 2 other tables and unfortunately we had a 'braying horse' (very loud lady giving us a blow by blow account of her day at Goodwood, whether we wanted to hear or not!) sitting next to us. however this did not...

Went with my family dinner and the staff made us feel very welcome. Modern decor with a relaxed atmosphere and great food. My husbands duck starter was delicious as was my Halibut for a main. They catered for my 7yr old and nothing was a problem. A bit expensive but well worth a visit.

This was the most wonderful meal. All the food was superb as was the service and presentation. I had a turbot main course which was one of the best main courses ever. It is a lovely summers evening place to go, near the water and only a 20 minute drive from the centre of Chichester. It is pricey but worth... More
