The Blacksmiths is a recently renovated pub situated on the outskirts of the historical city of Chichester in the old village of Donnington, West Sussex.

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.  We also have dog friendly eating and drinking areas, So whether you are visiting by bike, boot or boat – we look forward to welcoming you.

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