The Jewel of Chichester

Located in the very heart of Chichester, The Crate & Apple has it all. A sun-trap terrace at the front, a hidden garden at the back, and all within a minute’s stroll to the town centre. If you’re looking for a friendly, relaxed pub where you can enjoy traditional British fare with a twist then look no further. The Crate & Apple is the pub for you!

Since 2017 the team at The Crate and Apple have been striving to become the No.1 food destination in Sussex. We have now added award- winning Head Chef Marcus Pingriff to the team and are ready to take the No.1 spot.

Marcus has over 30 years experience as a chef and is heavily focused on offering a traditional pub menu that reflects the diversity of West Sussex.

At The Crate & Apple we are proud to support local suppliers and use only the highest quality locally sourced produce.

The Crate & Apple Sunday Roast

It goes without saying that quality and passion are what drives the team at The Crate. Our award-winning Sunday Roast is testament to that. With a choice of beef, pork, lamb and a vegetarian option, Sundays at The Crate & Apple have become a local institution.

Sunday Roast is served between 12 -5pm

Due to demand booking is recommended

Family friendly

We are a family friendly pub and proud to be a part of the local community. Whether it’s the local knitting group on a Monday morning or the Sunday night quiz, The Crate & Apple is more than just a pub, it’s the heart of Westgate.

And now with the new “Apple Shed” outside area we can seat up to 24 guests in a heated fully enclosed area. 

So if you’re looking for a traditional Gastro pub, a cocktail in the hidden garden or just somewhere relaxing to stop for a while, The Crate & Apple is the place for you.

And remember all pets are welcome. We even have special beers for dogs and cats!
