     Chichester       East-West 2/2



TRAIL 2  East-West  10 pubs


Across the roundabout is The Vintage. Return and go back up West St and just as the cathedral starts there is on old church on the other side – this is Wests.

Go back to the Cross and straight across to East St. Walk a little of the way down looking out for a lane called St Martins on the right hand side. Go up this lane and find the Hole In The Wall. Return to the pedestrian area and walk all the way down East St to the junction. On the left junction is The Nags Head and then on the straight ahead road is Eastgate.

Come back across the junction and go down to the right to find The Bull. Continue down this road a few minutes, heading back to the railway station. As you get close you should see The Fountain pub which is part of trail 1 but I would be tempted anyway. Or continue round and see The Globe Inn next to the station.


Nags Head is a very traditional looking bar from outside and in the main bar area. The L-shaped serving counter serves a room with booths against the walls. To the right is a more modern area with lots of large wooden tables. Through from the right is a large dining room. Beyond this is an outside patio.

Have a pint here.


Real ale       :Flowers; Summer Lightning; Directors

Lager          :Stella; Heineken;1664; becks; Fosters; Amstel

Eastgate has a wooden floored bar at front separated from a carpeted area by a centre chimney – both served by the bar. This then leads more tables and chairs and sofa in front of fire. There is an outside patio of four tables with a room of it for pool. Really more of a smoker's patio than a beer garden.

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.

Vintage is a modern bar /diner. The bar is straight ahead and serves two seating areas split by a half wall. There is outside seating by the road (not the roundabout) and in the beer garden to the rear. Music Sunday afternoons.
