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.

We had a fantastic stay at the Prince of Wales, ... 05/07/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Lauren G. Confirmed

  • Non-electric grass pitch

  • Liked: 

    We had a fantastic stay at the Prince of Wales, great little pub and perfect position for Festival of Speed. A little peeved by huge hike in cost to stay for the FOS weekend but I guess that's par for the course around there that weekend (£60 for 2 days camping is a little steep, particularly with no showers). We ate in the pub Friday and Saturday night and the food was great, lovely to see a proper pub menu with prices to match and service was great. Ideal when spending days walking around festival, meant we could really relax in the evening with a few drinks. Will definitely be back.

A good site for short stays, cheap and cheerful in a pretty meadow. 03/06/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Kath F. Confirmed

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

    A friendly relaxed campsite, no overbearing 'rules and regulations' and also a cheerful and helpful pub landlady. The site fees were nice and affordable for families on a budget and this was a good place to pitch after a day at the seaside with the children, being near Bognor and Littlehampton . The pub served food which was also convenient as we therefore did not have to drive anywhere once we had pitched our tents.

    Disliked: 

    It was a shame the railway line was very close as the trains were frequent and loud which made it hard to sleep as they ran through past midnight and started early it seemed around six in the morning.
