The health and wellbeing of our guests and staff are of the utmost importance to us,
and so sadly the Horse & Groom and the Deli have had to close for the immediate
future in support of the efforts to fight the spread of Coronavirus.


Drink. Eat. Stay.

Ideally located just four miles west of Chichester and on the edge of the South Downs National Park, the Horse & Groom has been East Ashling’s public house for more than 200 years.

Popular with locals and visitors alike, our warm, homely pub and lodgings have been beautifully brought to life under the new owners, who have extensively refurbished this historic former blacksmith’s shop.

Amongst the decorative features you can discover are a striking metre-high bronze horse and jockey sculpture in the entrance hall, an 1840 chestnut serving table from the mountainous area of Andalusia in southern Spain, and an apple green baker’s counter bar that was bought from the Cognac region of France – it even has the original coin slot in the surface.

Your cultural journey continues into our dining room, where we serve wholesome dishes prepared with locally sourced produce against the backdrop of early 20th century paintings and contemporary art. A hand-crafted oak floor has been added to provide a suitably authentic feel.

Great hospitality and food await at the Horse & Groom – we look forward to seeing you soon.
