Perched on the edge of the beautiful South Downs National Park, and taking its name from the adjacent Fontwell Park Racecourse, The Old Stables enjoys premium views, particularly from its pretty beer garden. With a distinctive partially-thatched roof, the pub serves well-love British pub cuisine, which can be enjoyed from the al fresco dining area or by the welcoming hearth-fire.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Old Stables menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Old Stables ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

A country pub in Fontwell, but close to the coast as well, The Old Stables is only 7 minutes’ drive to Chichester.

    Have been to this restaurant on many occasions. Unfortunately last night's experience was dreadful. Two of the three meals had to be sent back .
    The manager and his staff in the restaurant were great unfortunately on this visit the chef let them down.

    Food was lovely. Service was very slow as there was only one serving. She did her best and was lovely but it was still very slow and not her fault.

    We booked a table for 2:30. We didn't get seated till 3:00 and our starters arrived at 3:30 a full hour after we had booked . We won't be going back. Staff are friendly and the food was good. They just need more staff.

    This was out first visit to the old stables & we wasn't disappointed! The pub had a lovely ambience, great choice of ales & Gin's! The food was superb & the service was excellent. We were particularly impressesd with a certain member of staff who we will email about separately. A very enjoyable visit & certainly will revisit in the near future. Thank you.
