“superb service, good pub food”
“Excellent food & service, beautiful setting”

Just some of the comments we have recived....




The food (both lunch time and evening) is always delicious at The Squire & Horse. Good traditional dishes, as well as innovative/unusual dishes. The prices are "average/medium". A couple of years ago, I had a very special birthday (ending with an 'O') lunch here -- 46 guests -- all have gone back and eaten there again more than once. That tells you they all enjoyed it!

A lovely restaurant needs lovely people, lovely food, lovely wine and a lovely ambience. This place has it all in bucket loads! Between seven of us we sampled many parts of the menu (we all had three courses) and they were perfection. It would have been nice to thank the chef and his/her team personally but they would have been way too busy with food for all the other customers. The serving staff made us feel like part of the family.

“just Gets better and better”


We have dined here several times now. Even introduced friends to fine dining. 
Always a warm welcome from the staff. We have now become regulars, even though we live 20 minutes away. 
The pub and it's restaurant is worth the drive. 
The menu is varied, with daily specials on the board by the bar. The wines on offer are plentiful and reasonably priced. 
When I dine out, I tend to eat with my eyes first. If the food looks great , it usually is. 
I can highly recommend this place for its warm welcome to its simply delicious cuisine. 
I just wished I had stopped years ago, instead of just driving past.

“Lovely :)”

Visited this pub as a party of 20 walkers walking in the area. We pre-ordered the food and it was efficiently served by the very welcoming staff. All the light and main meals were superb and very fresh: a real find. On a main road so can't be missed. Certainly worth stop enroute to Arundel region. You won't be disappointed by the food and the quaint pub. Some funny framed post cards in the gent's loo.

“CANNOT WAIT TO RETURN it never fails to excel”

Have actually eaten here many times but only twice now in last three months but it never fails to excel. last visit was in passing & intended to get take away Fish & Chips but settled on eating there it was fantastic. We currently have guest from Italy who was dying for a Fish & chip meal so took her here, again it was almost too good to be true Fish was so fresh & batter so light. Menu is very extensive and specials are not far off that too. We went Friday early evening 12th June, it was reasonably busy even at that time. Most meals are around £12.50 and all are well worth it. Deserts still to die for though we settled for their home made ice cream (always a winner). Give it a whirl I think you will be pleasantly surprised!! Can't wait to return

“CANNOT WAIT TO RETURN it never fails to excel”

Old style pub with outstanding food. Came here on the recommendation of my Uncle, travelling from Portsmouth for a family lunch for 8. Super duper food, great service, unusual menu, a really grand day out on a rainy Good Friday. Will definitely be back and will join as a member

“Missed film”
“just Gets better and better”


We had gone to Chichester to see a film, however we were running late and could not find a space in the cineworld car park, so the mission was aborted. As we were both disappointed we thought we should do something and decided a pub meal was the answer.
Last year we stopped on the way back from a Arundel cricket match for a drink at The Squire and Horse, my wife looked at the menu and thought it might be worth a visit. Fast forward and their we were sitting down for our meal.
We shared a Thai starter of satay chicken and Thai fish cakes, the chicken was succulent and the satay with crunchy peanuts was great, the fish case were good and the accompanied chilli sweet sauce had a lovely bite.
I had the fish and chips for a main, and the fish was moist and tasty wrapped in a lovely light batter, very enjoyable. The dessert was a rhubarb frangipane tart with ice cream, both were good.i had a couple of glasses of a Aussie Viognier, very nice.
It was a really good meal. The service was friendly and well paced, I look forward to my next visit.

“Beautiful Food, Beautiful View, great find!”


My fiancée and I were driving down to Arundel for the day and spotted this pub on route and decided to stop for a spot of lunch.

When we arrived, the staff were really welcoming and friendly and let us know that the kitchen was closing shortly but that if we ordered in the next 5-minutes, our order would still be accepted which we really appreciated.

The food was absolutely brilliant (we had Pheasant and Lamb main's) and very reasonable given it's quality. We ended up spending a few hours here admiring the beautiful views and got chatting to quite a few of the locals who had been out walking their dogs (love a dog friendly pub!)

I would definitely stop here again and would recommend stopping here for lunch or dinner if anyone is also on a day trip to Arundel or passing by.

“Perfect food if you've been walking all day”


This is an exuberant, cheery pub on the South Downs serving above-average, eclectic and traditional, pub food. Staff were sweet, portions enormous (perfect if you've been walking all day). Only oddity was a dish of Thai fishcakes, satay chicken and crisp seaweed came with finely chopped iceberg lettuce instead of seaweed, as if no one would notice. An enormous pavlova with passion fruit coulis for pudding was sublime. (The added macaroon with strawberry ice cream was perfectly executed but just too much.) Good selection of wines, including by the glass. Prices do verge towards the expensive.
