About the hotel

The Dean Ale & Cider House at West Dean, has been the local village watering hole for the past 200 years. Set in the valley of the River Lavant in the South Downs, The Dean is 5 miles north of the Cathederal city of Chichester on the A286, and 5 miles south of the market town of Midhurst. The building itself has been lovingly restored and extended.

This freehouse now boasts a fantastic spacious dining hall, bright and airy conservatory and a warm and welcoming pub. The barns at the rear of the pub have been sympathetically renovated and now house the bed and breakfast accommodation. The pub has its own private car park and an allocated area for bicycles. The beautifully renovated converted barn at the rear of The Dean Ale & Cider House has six stylish en-suite bedrooms, which are perfect for a special break or a business stay. All the bedrooms have flat screen TVs, free wireless internet access and coffee and tea making facilities. Every overnight stay includes a delicious breakfast served in the conservatory. In the warmer months you may like to enjoy your breakfast al fresco on our decked seating area. Whether you are eating in our dining hall or the more intimate space of the conservatory, which has double doors that open out onto the decked courtyard for al fresco dining in the warmer months, the dining experience at The Dean Ale & Cider House is something special. We source the finest, freshest local produce and smoke our own meat, fish and cheese to create superb uncomplicated food that changes with the seasons. Traditional pub food but 'with a twist'. The menu includes regularly changing specials and bar meals are also available for a lighter lunch or a more informal bite to eat. The atmosphere in The Dean Ale & Cider House is warm and welcoming. The open log fire warms and welcomes to keep everyone toasty in the winter months, whilst the decking and garden beckons in the summer.

Highy recommened place to stay

We recently booked three rooms in this fabulous pub/hotel for my Nieces wedding which was at West Dean College literally 5 minutes away.

The rooms are amazing with high quality bedding and towels and they were immaculate. We stayed two nights and both days we had fresh towels and the rooms were cleaned. The staff were extremely helpful and the food was delicious. We had a full English breakfast that had everything you could want and was hot and tasty, we stayed for lunch and used the bar the night after the wedding where there was a fabulous choice of drinks. We cannot fault this hotel and the staff and we will definitely be returning, for anyone looking for value for money in a beautiful location then this is for you, we had a great weekend.
