Great Pub/Restaurant, super staff, terrific location.
Room was a bit small and limited wardrobe space, but that's simply a petty gripe!
We needed a local base for Goodwood House and the Royal oak served our needs extremely well. Staff were excellent, we didn't use the restaurant for dinner but the breakfast was very good
The Bed was really comfortable, the shower was really powerful, the towels lovely and thick. Really nice toiletries, in fact everything was great quality. Was great having a fridge in the room, and lovely complimentary biscuits. The restaurant food was delicious, I had the venison, which i would highly recommend.
Nothing not to like !
Food, friendly staff, dining room, breakfast
Not ideal for a traveller with international size luggage. Car park is across the road and room has outside stairs for access.
Great food - Good dinner menu with a vegetarian options and wine selection. Many breakfast options ranging from Full English to fresh fruits. Friendly staff. Comfortable room with great bed and very clean.
Wifi was not strong enough in the room. Spiders in the corridor.
Food and Service
The food was excellent and the charming owner
Wifi is necessary in these days, otherwise clients will not return for staying overnight......
Food superb Staff efficient & friendly Location lovely - South Downs Chichester Cathedral very welcoming The Witterings - lovely beach
We didn't find any faults
Position & atmosphere
Standard double rooms with ensuite very small. Distinct lack of storage space and worktop space in bathrooms. Had to change rooms as 1st room was extremely airless...plus it had a plumbing problem. Restaurant surprisingly over priced. Breakfast very amateurish.
every thing really nice , good food , good standard of room .
bit pricey … but great accomadation on the edge of the downs .
Good food and excellent service. The position of the inn is very good for exploring surrounding area. Also very good out door eating spaces at the inn. The bed was very comfortable with good quality sheets. The bath towels etc. were good quality.
Unfortunately our room was disappointing, small and cramped, no drawer space and inadequate hanging. There was constant noise from kitchen extractor fans situated a few feet from window. No ventilation in bathroom. We would recommend this as a place to stay but with a different room. Some of our comments reflect our disappointment with the room.
The food, the location, the room (although why the cushions).
The location, the welcome, the room, the food ... All the boxes were ticked!
Thinking too hard about this so if I could think of anything it would be very minor....
Very comfortable room, beautiful surroundings. Welcoming attentive staff. The food was fantastic. We had dinner there on two nights and breakfast each morning. Just really great food.
The staff were all very helpful and friendly and the food was excellent.
The room was not as big as we thought when looking at the photos and the walls were paper thin. Myself and my husband both had a very bad night's sleep because of someone snoring in the next room. My husband got some sleep I hardly got any!
Food was first class Room was lovely and spacious
Nobody told us our room was directly above main bar, even though I asked if room was suitable for family with young baby. Staff would sit directly below our window smoking and talking after their shift. After the first night, I asked the Manager if it was possible for the bar staff, to sit away from our windows. They didn't and on the third night, at 1am (the pub closed at 11pm), I leant out the window and asked them if they could possibly be a little quieter or sit away from our window (there were plenty of other tables away from our room). But they continued to sit there, talking and smoking and commenting on what I'd asked. Really did ruin an otherwise lovely getaway. Fine if you're a deep sleeper and don't mind smoke filling your bedroom.
Fantastically comfortable room with superb bathroom and romantic view. Delicious food and wine and all served with a smile in a buzzing atmosphere. Perfect.
Charles and the team were brilliant.
No 13amp plug near a mirror in room 5 - very small point!
Great staff good atmosphere, good food
Friendliness of staff, good food, good rooms
Noisy kitchen extract fan in courtyard
Very expensive to stay in a "shed"
The breakfast and food in the restaurant was excellent. We slept well on the very comfortable bed and woke up to the birds singing.
situation very good, with many interesting places close by. Restaurant very good, and with excellent service. A very friendly atmosphere throughout. A most enjoyable stay, hopefully to be repeated in the near future.
Can't really fault anything
Very comfortable room.Generally, a lovely old building. Lovely views from the rear. First rate breakfasts. Welcoming staff. The surrounding countryside is wonderful (and the garden is almost right in the fields), and very close to Chichester.
Dinner decent but not great. View from our room was over the car park. But we would happily return.
