The Partridge Inn, Singleton

A friendly pub in the South Downs National Park, near Chichester with some elevated food: suitable for mud-splattered families and celebratory occasions alike.

Weekend Escapes

A proper good pub in the South Downs National Park, The Partridge Inn manages to be both the perfect pitstop for hungry dogwalkers, cyclists, and campers, and a foodie destination in its own right; somewhere to drive to for a date.

How? Well, the food is, like, really good. A mix of familiar, seasonal pub fare executed to a high standard and more creative dishes, everything is locally-sourced and plated gorgeously. You can rock up famished after a three hour hike and demolish a roast dinner in your boots, or you can put on a dress and savour a plate of herb-crusted cod and saffron potatoes. Somehow, amazingly, they both work.

Bright and clean in its styling, the pub interior feels restaurant-y, though the three roaring fireplaces and wooden beams maintain some of the 16th century history and classic feel. There’s also an extensive garden out the back, decked out with picnic tables and fairy lights, which nails the summer beer garden vibe, complete with wood-fired pizza oven. And to drink in this charming setting? A wide range of craft beers, fine wines, local ales, and spirits should do the trick.

Dogs are (naturally) welcome, as are kids — there are water bowls and treats for the former plus pub gardens games such as giant jenga for the latter, alongside the afore-mentioned garden for bombing about in.

Planning an event? The Partridge Inn caters beautifully for parties, both inside and in the extensive garden. The pub also puts on biannual music/beer festivals which are well worth keeping an eye out for, as well as general events taking place throughout the year.
