About the horse and groom

Good Morning! Welcome to the Horse and Groom

The Horse and Groom Chichester

A Warm & Friendly Welcome

Mike & Michelle Martell would like to Welcome you to The Horse & Groom.

The Horse & Groom is a unique 17th centery country pub, restaurant with bed & breakfast chichester.

At the heart of a good pub you will always find the hosts,this is especially true of The Horse & Groom.

Mike Martell acquired The Horse & Groom in September 1994 and has run The Horse & Groom for over 24 years and has carried out substantial renovations throughout the building during that time, this includes improvments to the cellar and the flint barn which now houses the bed and breakfast accommodation.

Mike & Michelle Martell have worked hard to build a hospitable and pleasant place to have a drink, meal or a pleasant break, making sure that their customers experience good quality food and drink in simple, traditional surroundings whilst enjoying value for money.

A Rustic & Traditional Country Inn

When entering the bar for the first time our guests are immediatly made to feel welcome and at home by our friendly staff. The red bricked walls, flag stone floors, scrubbed wooden tables, inglenook fireplace, wood pannelled bar all help to evoke a cosy, familiar feeling like you have always belonged here.

Mike has built an enviable reputation for his cask beers over the last decade. His secret lies in his constant pursuit of perfection, his cellar skills and the cellar itself. Unlike many 'corporate' and more modern pubs, the Horse & Groom has a traditional underground cellar so the beer is kept at a constant temperature. A constant temperature ensures a better beer taste whilst raising the beer from the cellar by traditional hand pump improves the presentaion of the beer in the glass. There is also a good choice of chilled lagers including the premium brand Warsteiner. No wonder the Horse & Groom is mentioned in dispatches in the Good Beer Guide.

Whether you prefer beer or wine, if the weather is right you can enjoy your tipple in our fully enclosed garden to the rear of the pub.
