Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Wow what a beautiful hotel/pub the Ingleknook is. We stayed over 2 nights at the Ingleknook and can’t fault it one bit we had a lovely room the furniture is lovely oldie country style which fits seeing as it’s an old building. We couldn’t fault our room. The manager Phil was absolutely wonderful nothing was to much trouble, he went out his way to help us with anything we needed and was very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was lovely with a good variety, Dinner was delicious again Phil was extremely helpful with my fussy family. We will definitely be returning.

Stayed over night while working in the area. The room was comfortable albeit with a deliberately i presume dated styling. It was pleasant although the showerhead over bath did leave a little to be desired and would in my honest opinion benefit from a bit of modernisation. It was above the pub and as there was entertainment there were people around till quite late (not making excessive noise or anything) but sound travelled. There was parking through the back and the setting was nice. The pub was pleasant enough and they found me a table outside to eat at. The food was delicious although I was visited by some wasps - the joys of a pub beer garden where they are growing an array of plants. If the dinner was nice the breakfast was fantastic. My only reservation about staying again was the lack of a proper shower and the dated room was not really to my taste.

The website says it's an 18 bedroom, 16th century family run hotel. It has been owned and run by the Honour family for 40 years. ( it's shabby and I believe that family sold it some time ago) We specialise in making every ones visit to us as comfortable as possible. No they don't, no one made any attempt to make us feel comfortable, or even come to the table to check if we were. We are nestled in the beautiful West Sussex countryside and very close to the beach. (No, it isn't it's in a built up area of Pagham, which is attached to Bognor Regis) We have a very cosy bar where we serve fine wines and an impressive selection of ales and home cooked bar food. (Not my idea of cosy, the bar was shabby, smelly and there was nothing at all impressive about it) Our restaurant has table d'hote and a la carte menus proving local line caught fish and delicious home cooked food. (Quite how they have the nerve to say this, I do not understand. This would indicate fine dining. Our experience was not that at all. Don't trust a word of it. Our complaint is that our family Christmas day meal was so awful, due to the extremely bad service and totally unacceptable, meal, especially considering the £80 per head that they charged us. Things did not start off right even upon arrival. We came in via the rear entrance from the car park and firstly we were unable to find our way in and on leaving in the dark the lighting was so bad that we were unable to see our way out across the courtyard. On entering the building, n one was there to show us to our table. It was disappointing that no complimentary drink was offered, which would normally be expected on such an occasion for that price. We were a family group of 7, but had a round table in the middle, which was set for 8. Even when we pointed this out to staff, no one cleared the extra place. In any case, it would have been almost impossible for everyone to shuffle everything round after the table had already been set, so, I spent the evening sitting uncomfortably next to an empty chair with coats and bags on it. This set the scene for what was about to be an absolutely awful evening. Our drinks order was taken and after a while some small bowls of disgusting, insipid thick, beige coloured, garlic smelling, liquid potatoe like soup arrived. None of us were able to identify what it was, so I asked a young 'waiter' what it was. He didn't know and said he would bring a menu! He never did. I only found out that it was supposed to be celeriac soup once I had a reply from the manager. With the soup came a small boring white bread roll, which appeared to be one of those supermarket ‘bake at home’ varieties. No interesting mix of breads, no basket. just a plain boring, sad small bread roll. The managers response to that was that ‘The bread rolls are delivered daily by a local bakery. I don’t believe there is a bakery locally or that a bakery would have delivered on Christmas day. The crackers were cheap and nasty, with rubbish trinkets inside. Still no drinks had arrived, so I told one of the restaurant girls, that we had now finished our soup and still did not have our drinks. Her response was that 'the bar is really busy'. So even though all the tables were prebooked weeks ago, they were not prepared to have a busy bar. If they accept so many bookings for meals and don't have enough resources to serve at the bar, perhaps they should have closed the bar to the public. We noted that at some point later on in the afternoon, there were only 3 people in the bar area and one person serving at the bar who was unable to cope. Next came some kind of seafood starter with tiny uninteresting prawns, and a nasty tasting pre-made smoked salmon mousse thing. Still 8 of them arrived when we were only 7 guests. No order to who was served first. Plates just shoved in front of us. Does the Ladies first rule not apply any longer? At least they could have served the more senior guests first. Then followed a long wait, during which time we observed the staff. floundering as they obviously had no training, no idea how to clear the tables, taking small amounts at a time, stacking one dirty plate of leftover food. on top of another, on top of another. Must have been their first rodeo. We had to clear our own table of all the cracker wrappers, empty bottles and extra glasses. Main courses arrived and more chaos ensued, with staff appearing with large plates of food announcing turkey and gammon. No one claimed it, so they were all confused and reappeared with some different dishes that were placed in front of us. Then a child's dish, which had to be rejected twice as it came smothered in gravy, which we had explicitly asked not to have. The waitress then proceeded to radio to the kitchen from our table. When the plate came back it was without the ham, only one small sausage, and the potatoes still had gravy on them. So the 11 year old actually only ate a small bread roll, the sausage and some carrot for his Christmas meal. We all know that lots of children don’t eat sprouts or hard parsnips. Some broccoli would have been nice. The sirloin came absolutely smothered in a nasty thick layer of weird chopped mushroom and mini frozen silverskin onions, in a ghastly red wine gravy, a big handful of what seemed to be pea shoots, one large cold, dry yorkshire pudding, some roast potatoes and parsnips, which seemed to have been hanging around for a while. Then came the dish of vegetables. Canteen style large dish of just plain brussel sprouts and chunks of carrot. That was it. What would it have taken to serve a few more interesting well prepared vegetables. One of us had the winter vegetable wellington, which she didn't eat. She said it was 'nasty' it seemed to be one of those bought in frozen ones from the wholesaler down the road. There was a ghastly fish dish which came on a thick bed of something that was described as saffron risotto and shellfish bisque. Was that risotto or soup? Horrid anyway. At no point did anyone come to ask if we needed anything. or to check if everything was OK. They probably already knew the answer to that. When we needed more drinks, one of us went to the bar and came back with an arm full of soft drinks. That seemed to be the quickest way of getting served. Once the table was eventually clear again, we were asked 'Are you ready for pudding guys? What arrived was a shameful excuse of a desert trio with a little slice of sad cheesecake, a small square of dry chocolate brownie and a little glass of something that was probably supposed to be trifle but was actually a horrid mini soggy sponge in thin jelly with watery instant custard on the top. At least the cream served a purpose, to put with the dry brownie. Then followed the worst example an extremely shameful excuse for a Christmas pudding that I have ever seen. There was nothing Christmassy about it, just a tiny patty tin shaped piece of stodgy pudding with some raisins in it. Pity we hadn't kept the cream for what came next. No one has been dealing with front of house, or overseeing the restaurant service, which was chaotic, unprofessional and simply about as bad as it could get. Afterall no one was overseeing the proceedings. By this point we were all far too polite to make any more fuss, not wanting to cause an embarrassing scene, but decided to have a nice cup of coffee before we left, after all we had paid for it. 2 coffees and a tea were ordered. what arrived? not a lovely tasty pretty cup of hot coffee. No, 2 large white pots, one with teabag tea and the other with revolting bad tasting instant coffee in it. Not even Nescafe. We had to ask for sugar and milk. When that arrived, the milk was in a huge glass jug, the sort that is used for a hotel breakfast buffet bar. Not a nice jug of cream. Then we realised that we also didn’t have any saucers under our cups or spoons to stir in the milk and sugar. So, it was pointed out to one of the staff that the was something very strange going on here. She agreed. I asked if the coffee was instant. The reply was that it was far too busy to be making coffee for everyone, so they did instant. I don’t mind good instant coffee, but not when it isn’t nice, and the bill was £80 per head. We abandoned the coffee and as we were so disgusted with the meal and service, I tried to find a member of management to speak to. As I approached the bar area, I saw the person, I presumed to be the manager sitting on a stool in the middle, talking to some other men. with which he was called to the till in another room to discuss someone else's bill, before I could speak to him. One of the men in the bar told me that if I needed to speak to him, I needed to be fast! I went back in search of someone and found a lady, who said she was the receptionist. We both waited to speak to the manager, but it took so long that I had to leave, telling them I would email them. In my email, I gave them the opportunity to make amends, but all I got were excuses. After chasing them for a reply to my email, I eventually got the first reply 9 days later and it was full of excuses and untruths. Followed by another with no offer of any sort of compensation. Just telling us that it wasn’t their fault we didn’t enjoy our meal. Please read some of the other reviews on here, especially in August, Sept and October 2023. They reflect our experience much more than any of the positive ones. I do wonder where they came from. It should be mentioned that it’s very difficult to just walk out on Christmas day and go somewhere else and in anycase we had already paid £35 deposits per person. So we stuck it out in the hope it would get better. It didn’t. Some of the response I got was starting with the reason the reply took so long was because he had taken a day’s holiday after the madness, his first day off throughout the whole of December. (What else did he expect) He said, the first sitting was in full swing therefore all the waiting staff were very busy (those that were not absent with Covid) but he was greeting and seating guests. (No one greeted, or seated the 3 of us, who arrived in the second car a few minutes after the others). He apologised that the drink order took a while and said they had full covers at 2pm; the bar was extremely busy with 90 plus guests (and again I’ll mention staff shortage due to Covid). (What did he expect?) Apparently, the soup was enjoyed by all other guests. (I don't think so, there was another group who gave a bad review about that.) He said they were prepared for Christmas day but could not foresee staff absences due to covid, which I’m sure you will appreciate had a massive impact on staffing. Regarding the main meal, no other complaints have been received so this must be down to personal preference. He went on to tell us that 8 meals were ordered, and 8 meals were served. (They were not, there were only 7 of us) and regarding the gravy on the childs meal. On investigating, the ‘note’ was written on the reverse of the returned menu but with no PTO added so was unfortunately missed – surely something as important as this should be added to the front and highlighted? (really) He went on to say; The waiting staff did come to check everything was ok; the tables on the left and right of you confirmed this to me. (I wonder how he checked on that) That We use Lavazza whole brew filter coffee, not instant. (so why did his staff tell us it was instant and why did it taste like dishwater and not like a nice pot of whole brew filter coffee?) Then Regarding my comment about him sitting chatting with men, He said it was actually 2 couples who joined them for the 2pm sitting; as General Manager it is his job to ensure ALL his guests in the whole establishment are looked after. He said these guests were actually sitting next to you in the function room and were commenting how pleasant their lunch and the service was. ( I wonder where he got that idea from. I don’t think he even knew I was there. He certainly did not ensure that anyone at our table was looked after. At no point did we see him in the dinning area). Excuses, excuses. And finally. He said ‘I hope you find somewhere more suitable to your requirements for Christmas 2024’ Well, we certainly will never return there and would be very hard pushed to find anywhere as bad as that. It was positively awful.

3 months ago our Daughter and son -in -law were fortunate to have their wedding reception at this beautiful hotel. It was the most magical afternoon and evening. The decor, food, drinks and not least the attentive service, were all exceptional. From the welcome drinks/ canapés until the last dance of the night, it was simply perfect. Phil Southgate the manager, Sophie and all the bar and waiting staff could not do enough for all of the guests. Sam head chef and all his team also were just superb. Everyone commented on the fantastic spread. Great job to all at The inglenook. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a celebration venue. Phil went over and beyond in every way and made our daughter’s wedding so very special. Thank you all.

We booked a 2 night stay as we were coming for one of their Christmas Party Nights, so decided to make a weekend of it. We seriously had the best weekend, the staff were amazing, the party night was great fun, the staff attentive and the food outstanding. The girls said The breakfasts are the BEST they’ve had, everyone enjoyed the food on the Friday night too, Thankyou Chef Sam. A BIG THANK YOU to all the staff for doing such an amazing job of setting everything up, and clearing every thing away. You guys don’t stop. Such hard workers. We had Spotless rooms, comfortable beds and 2 lovely log fires in the bar area what more could you ask for ♥️ We’ll definitely be booking again for a Christmas Party Night next year. We wish you all a Very Merry Christmas & a Happy and Healthy 2024. Gail, Lorraine, Jayne, Kimmy, Caz & Joy x

Nestled beneath the prettiest backdrop of purples and pinks, is a humble and unassuming building. This building will forever be etched in my heart as the setting of the most joyous and tragic period of my life. This building as you know, is the beautiful and picturesque hotel & restaurant of Pagham, The Inglenook. On the 4th of August 2023, I found out that my father was terminally ill. Due to be married the following year, Dad asked me if I could bring my wedding forward so he could still give me away while he was able. My fiancé and I decided we would have a ceremony in Bognor Regis where Dad lived, as he wouldn’t be able to make the journey to our hometown in Leicester, 189 miles away. An internet search brought me to The Inglenook, a few minutes' drive from Dad's home, and by the 11th of August, we had booked our ceremony for the 16th September 2023. During this time, I met a very special man, a man that I will be forever indebted too. This man is The Inglenooks heart, Philip Southgate. We visited Dad the first weekend of September for my daughter’s birthday, and met Phil, and The Inglenook, for the first time on 2nd September. We were so pleasantly surprised by how pretty and unique the hotel was, and the interesting nook and cranny's of the beautiful gardens. Not massive in size, but expansive in its visual. I was already envisioning the wedding photos. Phil showed us where we could be married in the gardens, where we could have a meal and a little shindig. He was patient with our questions, he was gentle with my emotions and was tender when I cried. If ever you wanted to know the face of true human kindness, it is Phil. Unfortunately, Dad had deteriorated so quickly, he had already lost the use of his legs, and giving me away was most likely not going to happen. We could have given up there, not pursued the ceremony, but it was Dads wish to see me married, and we would find a way. The next two weeks were crippling. Dads health kept declining, and I had accepted that he would not be at my wedding in person. The plans kept changing, and Phil just kept in step with me. It was supposed to be the happiest day of my life, and I was just in constant pain. No matter what news I came to Phil with, he reassured me that he would give me the most spectacular day, and he held up his end and then some. On the day of my wedding, Dad was in a coma. I spent all morning with him, holding his hand, telling him I loved him, and feeling his heart beating in his chest. We had decided to live stream the ceremony, and my brother would stay by his side to play the wedding for him. I know in my heart that he heard it all. I arrived at The Inglenook, and was escorted to the honeymoon suite by Phil and his team with all my belongings and my gorgeous dress. Everyone was so full of positive spirits, it was infectious and warm, and while I was going through some heavy emotions, Phil made sure that this day would be a positive memory in a tragic and dark time in my life. Nothing was too much, everything was available, and Phil had taken care of everything so that I only had to take care of myself. The room was so quaint. I loved the vintage and timely décor, and the huge whirlpool bath was an exciting addition! I was brought snacks and ice-cold bottles of water while I waited for my girls to join me. Finally, the excitement of the day was slowly seeping into me, though Dad was always at the centre of my thoughts. Behind the scenes, Phil had arranged all my ceremony music, set up the chairs and bows and though my guest numbers were small, he filled the function room with meticulous care, thought and love. His staff were just as wonderful, an extension of this man's kindness and generosity, everyone was readily available for anything we needed, and to say they all went above and beyond is simply not enough credit. From the lovely Rachel, whom I spoke with a lot during the booking process, to all the bar and catering staff who served us the most delicious cuisines and kept the tequila shots flowing. My new husband and I went to Dad’s side after the ceremony. I told him that I did it, I got married and that I would be ok. My husband took my father's hand and promised to look after me, now and always. I kissed his cheek, gave him my love, and went back to The Inglenook to see my night through as Dad would have wanted. On the 16th September 2023, I married my best friend, an absolute salt-of-the-earth incredible man. I love you so much, Shaun. On the 17th September 2023, I lost my Daddy. The first man I ever loved, and who ever loved me. There are no words I could form to describe how a person can go to sleep, having been completely fulfilled and filled with love, and wake up to a black hole of despair and emptiness. Though my wedding day was over, the care and support from The Inglenook was not. The chef kindly made us a late breakfast, to which Phil himself brought to our room so we didn’t have to sit in the dining area, crying into my eggs and bacon. Phil kindly let us stay past check-out time, so I had some time to process before packing up what was the most spectacular day prior. He was just honestly, a true gent. To Phil, I will never be able to express my deepest and warmest thanks for all that you did. Your hotel is beautiful, the food is exquisite, your staff are among the best, and you gave us a day that will be deeply loved and appreciated for all of time. But all of that pales in place of importance and of what mattered most to Shaun & I. You made the most tragic period of my life have a little sparkle of joy that would have made my Dad so proud. He would have loved your humour, and he would have had the deepest respect for the man that you are, as do I. It is clear that weddings are a walk in the park for you and the team, you did such a fantastic job, as I know you do for all couples that walk through your door. But what people really need to know, is that you are the special ingredient. You are so present, and so wonderful, a truly delightful slice of Pagham. With Love & Thanks, Holly & Shaun

Haven’t visited this restaurant in a long time so was curious to see how the new hosts were delivering the Sunday menu. The carvery menu is set price for two or three courses Menu is limited for starter but covers meat fish and veggie We had leek and potato soup which was excellent. Carvery is very good with every meat selection. Large Yorkies and rich gravy. Service was very good and a lot of team was working but all kept busy and knew what they were doing. Lovely visit and will go back

When we came to the inglenook we were greeted by a friendly lady on reception - she was very helpful and lovely to chat to; she gave us directions to our room and off we went! The room decor was beautiful, I felt like I’d been transported to a quaint royal cottage haha! Bliddy brilliant :) The girl who served us on the bar went out of her way to make us cocktails ((couldn’t resist ourselves)). Very polite n friendly and lovely pints n cocktails! We then had dinner in the restaurant in the evening, food was to die for and the service again was brilliant 10/10. Special thanks to Sophie for your brilliant service and friendly convocation! Thank you to all the staff that made our stay a pleasant one! X

My son & daughter booked a surprise overnight stay as part of my 70th bday celebrations. They chose The Inglenook as we have historically enjoyed numerous stays there over many years when it was run by the family who previously ran it, and my late brother also worked there. It was intended as a trip down memory lane. Sadly room 9, where my husband & I stayed was, to say the least, in significant need of a decent clean & attention to a number of issues. The first thing was the window was wide open when we entered the room, presumably left like that to freshen the air which smelt very musty. It was impossible for us to close it despite every effort resulting in the window lever snapping in half; someone came & managed to bash & crash it closed after contacting reception. The window frame was in a very poor state of repair. Other faults in the room then became very obvious, some of which I’ve shown in the photos. The twin beds were perfectly clean & very comfortable- but the overall standard of everything else relating to the decor & the bathroom is very very outdated & needing attention. I’m pretty sure that room is the same as it was over 25 years ago- including the carpet that’s in dire need of a good clean if not replacing ! The seating area in the bar is absolutely dreadful - again as shown in one of my photos. To be honest the whole place felt in need of a thorough deep clean in most areas. The staff were absolutely lovely - especially the chef, a lovely jovial Scot who went out of his way to accommodate us. He’s a gem that’s for sure. I left very saddened to see what was once such an iconic lovely country hotel having lost all of the charm it was once renowned for.

Response from Philip Southgate, General Manager at The Inglenook Hotel & Restaurant
Responded 1 Jan 2024
Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel; we welcome all feedback. It would not have been room 9 you stayed as that is our 4 poster room; by the phoptos it looks as if it was room 10 and you are correct in saying the room does need some attention which can hopefully happen over the quieter winter period. We are sorry you did not enjoy your time with us but it was good to hear there were a couple of positives during your experience.
