Bank holiday week

We were pleased with the welcome we had from Joseph.

Very willing and obliging. Went out of his way to give us local walking information. Lovely, clean room. Comfortable.

Nice rooms at inn

Excellent staff - friendly and efficient.

The room was a good size with an excellent quality DOUBLE (not king size) bed with excellent bedding. The bathroom was a reasonable size with a first class shower (not the bath that I had requested but that didn't matter). However, there was no light over the mirror and it was impossible to see well enough for putting makeup on. Also, there was no full length mirror in the room, just a medium size mirror on the table. There was a kettle with tea, coffee and lovely biscuits. No herbal teas though. Our meal in the restaurant was lovely - good quality food and generous portions. There could have been more ciders on offer, especially given the name of the place, but the one my partner chose was superb. Breakfast was very good too with very good quality ingredients in the cooked dishes.

The pub was delughtful, real ale, good wine and excellent food. The staff were warm and friendly, particularly helen who worked like a demon and really gave us brilliant friendly service with a smile. Thank you all at The Dean.

Lovely stay

Located in the small village of West Dean, this is a lovely pub with accommodation.

We stayed here on New Year's Eve as we fancied being somewhere away from the usual crowds. We were warmly welcomed by Mark and shown to our room. Eveything about it said 'quality' from the decor and furnishings, to the lovely bed linen. We then settled ourselves into the pub for a few drinks where Martin sampled the Adnams Ale as well as some of the ciders on tap. It was comfortably busy, not jam packed and although they weren't serving food that evening, they did bring out some nibbles later in the evening for everyone. Breakfast was well cooked and again, Mark was on hand to look after us. We can highly recommend the Dean Ale & Cider House, it's well worth a visit whether you're popping in for a drink or planning to stay overnight.

Pleasant design, comfortable accomodation, good food and excellent service.

Wish The Dean could have accommodated us longer but quite understandably they were fully booked.

Certainly would return. Both dinner and breakfast excellent.

Lovely place to stay, staff very courteous and helpful.

Room was clean and having separate access to the room is a bonus. Had breakfast and an evening meal, the food was brilliant.

Perfect weekend

It was our first trip to Chichester and The Dean proved ideally placed for us to explore the city and harbour.

Our room was in the converted barn overlooking the pretty patio garden. It was clean and light and with low windows and sloping ceilings felt cosy and comfortable and we had a great nights sleep. Breakfast was very tasty too. Altogether a lovely place to stay for a perfect weekend.
