About the hotel

When William III came to Goodwood he used to come to The Fox Goes Free to refresh the Royal Hunting Party on their breaks from London. The Fox Goes Free prides itself on the preservation of many of the original features, including, the bread oven, inglenook fireplaces, low beamed ceilings and brick floors. With this and the good range of real ales, fine wines and our extensive menu it will make your visit to a memorable one.

Goodwood is at the bottom of the South Downs, the pub is set in the beautiful countryside of the Goodwood Estate, close to the Weald and Downland (Singleton) Open Air Museum, Goodwood racecourse (for Goodwood Ladies Day) and Goodwood motor racing course (home of the infamous Festival of Speed and Revival) and the West Dean Gardens. A Sculpture Park and Golf Course are also close by. The nearest City to Goodwood is Chichester; a beautiful, quaint city boasting an impressive Gothic Cathedral and a large variety of shops and entertainment. Whether you’re in Goodwood and Chichester to enjoy a break in the countryside, to visit the sites of Chichester or to join in one of the events held at the Goodwood Estate, stay at The Fox Goes Free and enjoy the beautiful countryside surrounding us in the peaceful setting of the South Downs in West Sussex. With views over the countryside, The Fox Goes Free offers a high standard of bed & breakfast accommodation whether you’re visiting the area for business or pleasure. Our restaurant provides diners with a wide range of quality meals and obviously a tasty meal to start your day.

Lovely character pub, full of charm

We stayed at The Fox Goes Free as we were going to a wedding a few miles away.

When we got to the pub our room wasn't quite ready but the staff were so accommodating in letting us into the room early so that we could get changed into our wedding clothes and leave our luggage there. The staff worked around us and we really appreciated that as it meant we were ready when our taxi arrived. The room was extremely charming and spotlessly clean. The en suite very nice, lots of natural light via the window in the sloping roof.

Breakfast was excellent and we were disappointed not to be able to spend longer there and really appreciate the stunning garden and countryside beyond. We will definitely go back to fully enjoy and appreciate this charming place.

Didn't see a Fox but apart from that very good!

Lovely location, beautiful old building, comfortable bedroom and, despite the bendy walls everything worked fine in the bathroom.

The food that I had was faultless service sharp. Got good advice about duration and direction for a morning walk. Go there if you are in the area.
