An old world country dining pub boasting a coveted AA Rosette, The White Horse Chilgrove serves rustic and refined British cuisine. This enchanting rural hideaway features a lush al fresco area for summer dining and is part of The Good Pub Guide's Pub Group of the Year 2016.

Sourcing meats and vegetables form the South Downs wherever possible, as well as fish and game from trusted local suppliers, The White Horse menu is burst with premium natural produce. Classic mains include smoked haddock rarebit with confit tomato, sautéed new potatoes, spinach & caper cream or slow roast suckling pig with herb stuffing. Desserts include dark chocolate brownie with pistachio ice cream & tuile.

Complementing its boldly flavoured menu, The White Horse restaurant offers a host of trusty house bottles, as well as more luxurious vintages from its cherry-picked ‘Red Book’. Rich coffees, silky real ales and a littering of daily papers ensure a community-pub atmosphere prevails at The White Horse in Chilgrove.

Medieval-style fittings are offset by a gallery of mirrors and contemporary artwork at The White Horse pub. Central Chichester is a 12-minute drive away. Located in the barn, the private dining room is the epitome of low-key countryside elegance.

    Excellent, service, food, atmosphere, décor and overall experience. Much of the food is locally sourced, which is commendable supporting other local businesses. We enjoyed crab cakes, goats cheese mouse, pork belly and pork loin, venison with pigeon and one of the specials which was a chicken and smoked ham pie. We then enjoyed lemon posset, ice cream, blackcurrant sorbet and a substantial cheeseboard. We also enjoyed some local Tinwood fizz to wash it down with. Everything that we had was truly delicious, I would highly recommend, I'm sure that you won't be disappointed!

    Fantastic meal, great atmosphere and lovely staff. Really enjoyed the live music. Kids loved it and asked if we can go again. Wonderful meal.

    we have not visited the White Horse before but will definitely be back. The setting is lovely and the decor simply superb, the sort of place you'd be happy to get snowed in at on a cold winters night. The staff were helpful and very attentive, and the food was absolutely delicious. I had the sea bream which came with saffron mash, very yummy, cooked to perfection. The chocolate tart although rich simply melts on your tongue. There is also a very good atmosphere here too. We eat out a lot and I can see this becoming one of my favourite places to dine out.
