About this property

The Royal Oak is a gorgeous 200-year old dog-friendly countryside inn tucked away in East Lavant, a pretty village at the foot of the South Downs - the ultimate playground for dogs! From high-quality dining with cosy bedrooms and cottages as well as a relaxed bar and terrace garden, this is the perfect getaway for those seeking peace, quiet and an indulgent escape from everyday life. With Chichester Harbour, Goodwood, the South Downs Way and the Roman town of Chichester on the doorstep, The Royal Oak makes a fantastic base from which to explore with your four-legged friend! 

Dine with Your Dog

Described by The Good Food Guide as “very much a dining destination”. Everything on the menu is dedicated to seasonal, contemporary British food and every dish has its own unique twist to allow the natural flavours to sing. The Royal Oak prides themselves on using the very best of local suppliers wherever possible - think fresh fish caught from the South Coast, smoked salmon and Selsey crab, venison and pheasant, ice-cream and cheese. The wine list features more than 100 wines from both the Old and New Worlds, with a wide range of ale, cider and spirits also available. Whether you choose to sit in the contemporary dining area, the relaxing bar or outdoor terrace, you will enjoy the best food and drink on offer. Canine companions are welcome in the bar by the cosy fire and on the terrace in warm weather if you fancy dining al-fresco!

The Royal Oak is perfectly positioned at the foot of the South Downs with fantastic opportunities for walking with your four-legged friend. The South Downs Way, which stretches for more than 100 miles between Winchester and Eastbourne, passes just a few miles north of the inn. The coast, including Wittering Beach and Chichester Harbour, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, are also close by. History and culture buffs should head to nearby Chichester, an ancient Roman city which is home to one of Britain’s most glorious cathedrals and the world-class Chichester Festival Theatre.
