Christmas at The Blacksmiths

With a roaring log fire, cosy interiors and delicious seasonal menus, our country pub is a glorious place to be this winter. Whether you are after the perfect venue for your Christmas party, a Christmas Eve lunch or Boxing Day feast with all of the trimmings, or to warm up after exploring Chichester, here at The Blacksmiths we have your festive season covered. 

In addition to our Winter Menu, this December we are also offering a special Christmas Menu for pre-bookings. Brimming with festive dishes guaranteed to make your mouth water, enjoy delicacies like Cotswold honey and apple cured trout, pot-braised beef brisket with horseradish mash and of course our traditional butter roasted turkey, complete with slow cooked bacon collar, roast potatoes, heritage carrot and sticky red cabbage.

If plant based meals are more your thing, we also have a decadent Vegan Menu available full of festive veggie delights.

For Christmas gift ideas, we also offer vouchers that can be used for a dining experience or overnight stay.
