Very popular 17th Century inn with lots of character and very good ales. The feel is basic, but very friendly, with bare floorboards and sawdust. Also known as the sausage pub even though the menu says fresh local fish a speciality - but there's one main reason most people visit the Sussex Brewery - the range of sausages supplied by Bill O'Hagan Located next to the Hampshire border the Sussex Brewery is surrounded by the magnificent Chichester Harbour, Mill Pond and surrounding marshes.

We'll admit that we are a bit biased as far as the White Horse is concerned as Fat Badger Kilo designed the oak frame bedroom barn at the rear of the inn. The White Horse serves excellent food, great wines and lovely well kept ales. Located in a picturesque valley in the South Downs National Park and ideally situated for Goodwood and exploring the south coast.
