This 200 year old inn is in the heart of a beautiful West Sussex village close to Goodwood Park and the fabulous cathedral town of Chichester. It is renowned with locals for offering glorious food in a chic yet rustic restaurant with a buzzy atmosphere. And for out of towners looking for a country escape, there are six sumptuous ensuite rooms complete with the latest technology including wi-fi and complimentary toiletries. If you need more space, want to stay for longer or are looking for a fully serviced home-from-home, there are also two two-bedroomed cottages with fully fitted kitchens, living and dining areas and private gardens.
