Picturesque West Sussex village pub on the market with Christie & Co

Specialist business property advisor, Christie & Co is delighted to bring to market, The Coach & Horses, located near Chichester, West Sussex.


The Coach & Horses is a country pub, located in the affluent West Sussex village of Compton. Situated between Chichester and Petersfield in the heart of the South Downs National Park, the characterful Grade II 17th century pub is warm and welcoming.  The pub accommodates 90 throughout the main bar, bar snug and restaurant areas. It also includes a one-bedroom owner’s accommodation and three newly decorated, individually designed en-suite king bedrooms.
Highly rated with a Booking.com Traveller Review Award for 2020, The Coach & Horses is praised for its top-quality accommodation at an affordable price as well as an outstanding service and varied menu.  It also attracts locals with quiz nights and live music performances.
Compton is a remote and charming village which is popular with walkers and cyclists. It also attracts visitors from afar due to its locality to Goodwood, Arundel Castle, Historic Portsmouth and the Octagon Walks through the South Downs.  The village lies on the B2146, six miles southeast of Petersfield, Hampshire and eight miles northwest of Chichester.
Current owners Paul and Dave have run the pub since 2018 and have carried out extensive refurbishments. They plan to sell to relocate.  They comment “We love our pub and the customers and village is great. It is simply shame we need to sell at this time as the pub has grown since we took over. Long term plans will make this pub a great destination place to eat dine and sleep. “
Richard Wood, Associate Director at Christie & Co, is handling the sale and comments, “Since Paul and Dave took over the business, they have carried out significant refurbishments with the addition of three beautiful en-suite letting rooms. These rooms now provide significant scope for a new operator to take advantage of the newly established income stream, capitalising the affluent villagers, walkers and cyclists.”
The Coach & Horses is on the market at a price of £450,000.
