General

  • Lovely paddock located behind the pub
  • Local to Southdowns National Park, Goodwood and Fontwell racecourses
  • Fantastic food and pleasant atmosphere

The Prince of Wales is conveniently located for Fontwell and Goodwood racecourses, historic Arundel, Chichester and the coast.

The camping field is an open plan paddock behind the pub. Caravan and camping facilities are available, including toilets, chemical disposal, fresh water and battery charging. Enjoy nice and simple camping experience.

Join Joe and Ivan in the lounge bar, or relax in the sports bar featuring pool, bar billiards and darts while watching Sky Sports multiscreen. When the weather is nice enjoy the sun in the attractive garden and patio with covered smoking area as well as a bouncy castle for the kids.

In the newly refurbished restaurant, all of the food is home-made, locally sourced and includes a regularly changing fresh fish and seafood board, traditional pub food, full 'a la carte' restaurant menu, vegetarian dishes and a Sunday roast.

This is a dog-friendly pub and campsite. Because your dog deserves a holiday too.

Ideal site for a couple of nights, not a longer stay. 28/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Louise S. Mobile phone icon Confirmed

  • Non-electric grass pitch

  • Liked: 

    Pitches are well marked out and numbered,ground is very level, very quiet site apart from the trains which cannot be helped, shop nearby for basic shopping. Pub garden has things for young children to do. Gated site.
    If your happy to get back to basics then this is the ideal site,for you, and for those just beginning camping.
    All in all a nice site for short stays but not ideal for long stays.
    Where left to our own devices.

    Disliked: 

    Lack of toilets and showering on site, the only toilets are in the pub itself which you have access to during opening times, water tap is not signed but is present within the pub grounds.

Great value for money, lovely pub and grub. 22/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Ian P. Mobile phone icon Confirmed

  • Non-electric grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The pitch was ample size for my 8person tent. We only booked a standard pitch so was surprised at the size. Pub food was lovely. Owners had a lovely way about them and were very welcoming. Bouncy castle in the pub garden was up on the Sunday, so the kid's loved that.

    Disliked: 

    Train track right next to the site/pub. We knew about this before booking and was a but busier that I imagined, but you get used to it very quickly. Toilet block not available. You have to use pub toilets. Also the chemical disposal is only accessible when the pub is closed.

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Suzanne W. Confirmed

  • Non-electric grass pitch

  • Liked: 

    Grass pitch, not always the best of course, but certainly adequate. Luckily the weather was lovely. Although there is a nearby railway running past the pitch this was not a problem, fairly quiet otherwise. The cost was very reasonable as there are no facilities, but toilets are accessible at the pub (at night also, if keys are requested).
