There's a good brew-pub somewhere in the vicinity, called "The Gribble".

Chichester is very "Olde Worlde" as the locals like to say.  They put me
up there when I had business in Bognor Regis several years ago.  Big
hotel several centuries old; the floor in my room was on a 15-degree
incline!  I missed Goodwood.
