I have the challenge of staying away from home for three nights a week for work and thus look for a place to stay where I can relax and feel at home. The White Horse is a great spot. In the middle of nowhere basically, you can kiss your mobile phone signal goodbye, the bar is cosy with a great...

Arrived to find very pleasant and welcoming staff and were shown to our boutique room. A short stroll to the Restaurant where we enjoyed a fast class dinner from a varied menu. As...

Luckily they had a cancellation so we were able to book in last minute. Lovely stay, nice room, good food, although it could all have been a little warmer! Sadly we couldnt stay for long but would have loved to have walked in the area and visited Upark. The restaurant was really quirky and I really enjoyed my bath before...

Visited as a get away from London for the weekend. A beautifully renovated pub with very tasteful decoration within the restaurant and bar area. The location feels very secluded and as if you are in the middle of nowhere and was so quiet. The food was outstanding and original. Yes, expensive but of such a good standard you really don't...

Visited The White Horse on 31st October, we booked a Stag Room after seeing on the Internet about having your own private Jacuzzi, and my fiancé and I have agreed it's probably the best night away we've ever had! The Pub/Inn is in the middle of the countryside, about 15 minutes drive out of Chichester. Very quiet and peaceful and...
