A Guide to Woodgate

Woodgate, situated on the outskirts of Chichester, is a charming village offering a peaceful respite from the bustle of city life while maintaining easy access to the amenities and attractions of Chichester. Home to our beautiful new Wings Wood collection of two- and three-bedroom Shared Ownership homes, here's an overview of what life in this delightful area has to offer:

Eating and Drinking

The Wilkes Head

A beautiful, traditional pub serving classic English pub fare within walking distance of our Wings Wood homes. The quaint building dates back over 200 years, but the menu has some more modern touches, such as a long list of quality ales and a selection of artisan hand-stretched pizzas.

The Parson’s Table

For something special, The Parson’s Table in nearby Barnham is a cosy but elegant spot serving locally sourced, seasonal food based on classic cooking with a modern twist. Recommended in the Michelin guide, this much-loved eatery serves both lunch and dinner with unrivalled attention, creative flair and a thoughtful wine list.

Ye Olde Fish and Chippe Shoppe

Living so near the sea means great fish and chips are on your doorstep. Serving classic fish and chips for over 80 years, this local favourite in the nearby seaside town of Bognor Regis is a relic that must be enjoyed.
