The Fox & Hounds is located in the charming village of Funtington, West Sussex, and within close proximity to the historic city of Chichester and was first listed as a public house in 1878.
This delightful building and garden was fully renovated in 2007, with the intention of sympathetically maintaining as many of the period features as possible, while at the same time creating an inviting and comfortable space in which guests can enjoy the wide range of reasonably priced drinks and food come rain or shine.
The Fox & Hounds benefits from a truly fortunate geographical position, with the coast and its beautiful sandy beaches (such as West Wittering) a mere stone’s throw southwards, and the stunning South Downs National Park directly to the north.
A place to relax and recharge …
As such, it offers visitors to the county a perfect spot to relax whilst exploring the area; and there are countless attractions in the immediate vicinity, such as the Goodwood estate (home of the renowned Festival of Speed, Revival Meeting and Glorious Goodwood events – a veritable mecca for motorsport and flat racing enthusiasts alike as well as lovers of grand spectacle), the Roman palace at Fishbourne, Chichester Cathedral, or Portsmouth’s historic dockyard and Spinnaker Tower to name but a few.
