Now Taking Bookings for Christmas 2017! – Christmas Menu Here

Christmas menu available throughout December, however we will be closed on Christmas Day.

Restored in a relaxed and comfortable style with a few quirky twists, guests can enjoy the blazing fire and homely charm of the anvil bar or the snug elegance of the dining room. There are also three uniquely furnished double bedrooms and a large garden area with outdoor seating, fire pits and our own herb and salad garden. Children will also love visiting the chickens, which supply all our eggs.

Located close to the Chichester canal towpath, The Blacksmiths is a perfect stop off point for a refreshing pint, or perhaps an extended afternoon on the terrace. Whether you are visiting by bike, boot or boat – we look forward to welcoming you.

We are currently recruiting for a Chef de Partie , if interested please get in touch 01243 785 578

Please note: On occasion we close for private events and are sorry for any inconvenience caused.
