Chichester
About the restaurant
Ideally located between the stunning Sussex Coastline and the beautiful South Downs, the Ivy Chichester Brasserie is the perfect spot for anyone taking a break between shopping on the city's bustling high street, or the visitors who flock to see its famous cathedral and art gallery.

The ground floor includes a round bar area while the restaurant's stained-glass windows take their design cues from the history that surrounds this beautiful cathedral city. Lavish furnishings and other eclectic design touches will appeal to theatre-goers here for the acclaimed Chichester Festival. The brasserie's outdoor terrace features comfortable seating, plants and lanterns, so when it's cold outside, you can still dine alfresco.

About the restaurant
Bill’s Chichester can be found smack bang in the middle of the Butter Market (we promise we serve more than butter), in our beautiful Grade II listed building. Our walls may be old, but our menu, and ingredients, are always fresh. So, take a seat, rest your feet after a day out on the cobbles, and let Bill’s take care of you.

About the restaurant
The Shepherd & Dog has maintained all the traditions you would expect in a country pub but has added some lovely touches. The fabulous Sunday Roast on offer from noon, last bookings at 6 PM is just one example that will delight your taste buds.

Locally sourced, seasonal food menus showcasing the best of the local area. Craft beers are all local, exclusive or unusual in some way - no run of the mill here!

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Horsham
About the restaurant
After a mosey around the market and a good test of your haggling skills, you’ll have worked up quite an appetite. In the heart of town, our Horsham Bill’s is as pretty as its streets so you can feast your eyes whether you sit inside or out. Bags down, feet up.
