I had traveled for 5 hrs arriving late at 21:05 to be greeted by a young lady who was pleasant enough. Gave my details and waited. Initially I was asked at what time did I like to have breakfast and then it all started to unravel, and after much looking in the diary and whispering I was told there had... More

Booked a table at the last moment and staff were very accommodating, reserving us a table in a shady spot, as requested. Being a Friday evening on a hot summer's night the beer garden was busy and there was a good atmosphere. Our order was taken promptly. Food arrived piping hot and was delicious - spaghetti bolognese for me and... More

My bedroom was lovely, but the toiletries should have been replenished. The bathroom wasn't cleaned or a dirty towel replaced. Breakfast was good - plenty of toast and coffee. Not a great selection of veggie evening meals. Beware - no pub or food on a Sunday evening.

The only okay thing about this place is the dinners - nice cooking. But the staff is rude and resentful if you ask for anything. If you can't find key for room they are put out - and let you know this. Comment if the room looks messy. When asked why breakfast so delayed they snap at you and say... More

This is a genuinely dog friendly pub/hotel. The rooms are very good in a block attached to the pub. We had an evening meal which was very good (generous portions too!) and a substantial breakfast! Recommended.

Just needed somewhere to change and sleep as I had a party nearby, and this fit the bill perfectly. Welcoming staff, comfy & clean bedroom, delicious full cooked breakfast the next day, nice pub bar area, and we were given a door-key so we could come in at 2am - so all good. 10 mins' drive to central Chichester.

We visited for our 40 Wedding Anniversary. Both women fussy eaters and chose this pub as the menu looked suitable. We all chose something different and I can honestly say I would quite happily eat any of the meals served. Good wholesome food served nice and hot (a bugbear of mine - hate luke warm food). So often the food... More
