PUB and BEER TRAILS.....

Chichester Sth-Nth 2/2

PUB FACTS

Chichester pubs are not dominated by any particular brewery. There is a fair share of free houses.

Almost all pubs offer food at lunch and most also do evening meals. There are a couple who are probably more restaurant than bar.

Several also offer city centre accommodation from Bed and Breakfast to actual Hotel.

There are two trails described for Chichester. The city has a distinct centre and four roads leading from it – North St, South St, West St and East St. The pubs are mainly grouped at the end of these four streets. Thus crawl one will take in the North axis while trail 2 will be the East-West route. The trails will each be designed to start at the train or bus station and visit pubs going from and coming back to the station.

Crawl 1 - North-South continued

TRAIL 1 North-South 12 pubs (or 9 if skipping Macro, Trents and The Ship - more restaurant than bar and no real ale)

Strictly speaking we are now going out of the centre but these next two pubs are worth visiting, and they are not far.
Turn left and make your way around the roundabout taking St Paul’s Rd to find The Rainbow Inn on the right hand side. Leaving here walk back to the roundabout and continue round by going through St Paul’s church (it’s safer). Once on the other side walk up Broyle Rd to The Bell Inn. Return to the roundabout and use the underpass to reach North Rd again. Walk up towards the cross and find The George and Dragon and then The Ship Hotel.
There is now a walk back to South St and half way down this on your left is Trents. Crossing over and continuing to station there is The Slug and Lettuce and then to The Globe Inn at the station.
