We found this restaurant on trip adviser while we were en route from Dorset to Eastbourne and were in need of a child friendly place to have dinner. We phoned ahead and booked a table for 7pm. When we arrived, the hotel was fairly busy but the waiter/barman was happy to put in our starving 5 year old order immediately... More

I've always enjoyed the carvery at The White Swan. Have to say though that the service seems to be getting better and better. Staff are always polite, attentive and try to make each experience better and better. The carvery food gets better with each visit and the focus is much more on quality now than just quantity. Well done guys... More

On a business trip from Poole, about 2 hours away, we stopped off for lunch as The White Swan is only a short distance from our destination. The place was very quiet but it was Monday! Baguettes were on the menu so I had Steak & onion with Horseradish and My Wife had Pulled pork with BBQ sauce, both washed... More

We just loved this find on our drive south west. The pub itself is beautifully designed with so much attention to detail. It's a 1700s in the old part of the building and the newer additions are so tasteful. Speaking of tasteful - we were really impressed with the menu. Different options to your typical British pub meals which was... 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.

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 you wanted to eat elsewhere. Standard prices.
