A once vibrant and comfortable gastro type pub has unfortunately in the last 12months deteriorated. Very expensive drinks, rude staff-including the manageress. I have tried again and again to give this place "one more chance" however my visit today summed up my previous experiences recently. Hopefully these new owners will move on soon so we can enjoy the pub once... More

A weekend in Sussex started with a night here. We had a room directly above a busy bar but slept well as there was no bar noise. Big bed. Comfortable room. Excellent cooked breakfast. Highly recommended. Special thanks to Laura of the front of house team. Great service from everyone but she was huge fun. We will be back

Such a shame, this used to be such an amazing place. Amongst all the chain restaurants, this was a real quirky gem. It has been ruined and it is a real shame...

We thought we would start with lunch and liked the look of Trents. We weren't disappointed. The decor is modern fresh and a nice mix of country/industrial with fresh creams blues and greys. There are different wallpapers dotted around, all very classy. Our food came promptly and was piping hot. I am fussy about soups, being a vegetarian I really... More

I was in Chichester to shoot a wedding and was impressed with the look of this hotel online, but it was more of a regular three star vibe. It's pretty much a pub with a few rooms rather than a hotel but it does seem like most of the hotels in this area are like this. The bed was not... More

We both had carrot and honey soup which was very yummy followed by chicken Caesar salad. It was nice to have waitress/waiter service rather than having to order from the bar. We found the staff very friendly and this all made for a very enjoyable lunch.

Trents is a pub in the the middle of a busy street so don't be surprised if your room is not very quiet. In saying that it wasn't that bad especially considering we were there on a warm Friday evening. The staff were friendly and attentive, the room clean, pleasant and well equipped and the breakfast fresh and tasty. The... More

We called in to Trents today as it began to rain as we were in South Street and it was the nearest place to shelter! We were aware that it was no longer as popular as it used to be but I have to say we left very happy. We had the sandwich and drink deal and enjoyed a glass... More

We returned here for lunch after having eaten here about a month ago when both the food and service were really good. As it was a sunny day, everyone had chosen to sit outside which seemed to cause the staff issues with delivering the food (no table numbers, some had plant pots with numbers on but not in use -...
