We are so lucky to be nestled in a county with so many fantastic attractions and events throughout the Summer. While often we are too busy working to get to many of them, we love hearing stories from our customers who stay with us at The Lamb to head out and explore as many events in Sussex as you can.
We’ve been taking a look at whats coming up this year and offer our pick of the best here:
The Floral Fringe Fair – 1st-2nd June, Amberley Museum
“An eclectic, quirky, foodie, arty, plantaholics wildlife event with classic cars, a vintage and a Steampunk twist!”
The Festival of Chichester – 15th June-14th July
“Over two hundred events will be staged in and around the city, making the Festival of Chichester one of the largest and most vibrant arts festivals in the south”
The Goodwood Festival of Speed – 4th-7th July
“The world’s greatest celebration of motorsport and car culture! Held in the beautiful parkland surrounding Goodwood House, the Festival of Speed is motorsport’s ultimate summer garden party, an intoxicating celebration of the world’s most glamorous sport”
Lordington Lavender Open Week – 8th-14th July
“Every summer the lavender field is full of bumble bees and butterflies and when the sun shines you can imagine being in Provence!”
Wiston Steam Rally – 13-14th July
“More than 1200 exhibits in attendance ranging from steam traction engines to vintage vehicles plus a large fun fair with traditional rides and side stands”
Glorious Goodwood – 30th July-3rd August
“Five days of thrilling action set against the magnificent backdrop of the rolling Sussex countryside, The Qatar Goodwood Festival is one of the highlights of the flat-racing season”

The first of the year is due to take place on Tuesday 5th March, we welcome all guests but booking ahead is essential and spaces fill up fast! The 2 course menu for our first Village Night for 2019 features a delightful lamb shank dish with mash of course, followed by our famous sticky toffee pudding. For all this, plus a pint of beer, house wine or soft drink included, the price is just £15 per head which is exceptional value.
Village Nights have become synonymous with superb food and company with our village customers filling The Lamb with their voices and laughter making it a very special night indeed.
A second night is due to take place in April with the date to be announced soon.
Our rooms, each featuring the name of a landlord in times gone by, are part of our warm and inviting gastropub, featuring an open fire in the bar area and log burner in the restaurant. In such a welcoming environment, it isn’t a surprise that our rooms each feature special touches that make it a home from home. Luxurious bedding and soft furnishings, wonderful bathrooms and coffee machines in each.
Priding ourselves on making our establishment cosy and welcoming to visitors from our village and those who have come from further afield, there is always a friendly face to greet you on arrival at The Lamb. We are happy to share with you a little history of our wonderful pub, or help you find the best walks and places to visit in the area. Angmering is spoilt to be so close to not only the Sussex coast, with its wonderful seafront walks and cafes, but also the endless rolling hills of the Downs. Historic towns of Arundel and Chichester are just a stones throw away and have some wonderful things to see and do.
So if you are looking for that perfect, cosy winter hotel for a romantic break or trip to the countryside, we would be happy to welcome you at The Lamb.
With the festive season almost upon us, the shops are certainly gearing up, many people are now looking at how to see their friends and family during December. We have already seen lots of bookings come in for our Christmas menu and in particular for our Christmas party menu!
For groups up to 8 in size, our a la carte Christmas menu (available from 1st -24th December) features some delicious highlights including, of course, the traditional Roast Turkey, sprouts, pigs in blankets and all the trimmings but also a slow roast pork belly, roast and confit rib of beef, pan fried seabass and a delightful mushroom and potato dauphinoise tart. These festive specials sit alongside some of our usual classics, with plenty to choose to suit all tastes.
Our homemade Christmas pudding is sure to be a hit with lashings of brandy sauce, but the dark chocolate and cherry brownie or the poached pear frangipane tart could be the winning desserts for some.
For groups of 9 or more, guests are invited to choose from our Party Menu. This is a set menu with 2 courses priced at £22.50 or 3 courses for £27.50. Plenty of festive choice including all the traditional options feature on this menu, which will be perfect for your office ‘do’ or when catching up with your wider family. This menu is available throughout December and January, so there is plenty of time to find that date you can all make!
