Ordinary White Swan

This is a typical chain type pub - big, generic menu as a kind of modern Toby Inn. Pleasant enough with friendly service. Attractive from the outside - whitewashed faux olde worlde kind of place. Handy location on the A27 between Arundel and Chichester. Also has rooms but you'd need to drive if... read more

Kids meals were twice the price of yesterday's lunch & didn't include a drink or dessert. Adult lunch was quite bland, lightly slated chips were deep-fried potatoes staff were quite flat and unresponsive we will not be back!

A large rambling country premises which is a hotel/pub/restaurant & with a function room & out door seating area with a charming interior.

After a disappointing visit to another pub nearby and having to leave, The White Swan quickly accommodated our party of 10 with no trouble at all. The service was friendly, efficient and quick. Everyone of us enjoyed our meal.

Excellent freshly cooked food and very good service. This is not a cheap or very expensive restaurant, but the quality of the food and portion size was extremely good. I had the home made chicken & mushroom pie, my daughter had scallops, king prawns & squid with salad, my husband had roast beef and all the trimmings and my nephew... More

Lovely looking large pub situated on A27. I had a ploughman's lunch - cheeses were very bland and the celery was inedible - not a good choice. Asked for some different but still very stringy. Burger looked okay but who wants peanut butter with it!

Stopped for a lunch and enjoyed a burger with peanut butter.......sounds crazy but really tasty!! Also had a good gluten free menu for my wife who enjoyed the fish pie. Pleasant surroundings and good service at a reasonable price, we will visit again when passing.
