Particularly convenient for Goodwood Racecourse which is just one mile from the village the pub is about seven miles from Chichester with its Festival Theatre muedieval cathedral Pallant House Gallery and Fishbourne Roman Palace. Cowdray Park Polo Club is 20 minutes to the north and Petworth House with its famous collection of JMW Turner paintings is half an hour s drive across the downs. Arundel Castle is in easy reach to the east as are the blue flagged sandy beaches of West Wittering and picturesque Bosham to the south. Slightly further away to the west is the historic naval base of Portsmouth home of HMS Victory and the Mary Rose. br / br / Local real ales from the Arundel Brewery continental lagers and a fine wine list complement the wonderful menus. br / br / The brand new StarGrazing menu offers something a little different.
