This pub is well named, sitting as it does right by the River Arun. There's now a fairly narrow terrace at the back running alongside the river, containing a good number of picnic benches. Food now seems to be the mainstay of this place, with the majority of tables inside (many also looking out at the river) now being for diners. Food commences at 6.00 PM during the week, and when I visited on a Thursday evening recently many of the tables were reserved, and all seemed to be occupied by the time we left. I didn't make a note of menu items, but as I recall there was a decent amount of pub favourites on offer at fairly reasonable prices, but the fresh fish specials were a bit more expensive - £12 - £13 upwards.

There were two ales on - Ringwood Razorback, and Arundel Sussex IPA (£3.60 a pint), with a third pump having a London Pride clip reversed. The Sussex IPA was in good nick. Although we were eating, and thus sat in the dining area, there were a few seats near the bar counter for drinkers, as well as on the outside terrace (which of course were well patronised an a warm summer evening).

This pub is just a little way from the center "seaside" area of Littlehampton, and I guess benefits from that (from a punter's point of view). But judging by the number of diners here on a Thursday evening it's not exactly a best kept secret location. Worth a visit if you can bear to be dragged away from the bright lights of Littlehampton.

A riverside pub just a short walk from the railway station and easily visible from the train as it pulls in. Normally a two bar affair with a conservatory overlooking the River Arun however currently the Environment Agency are undertaking extensive flood defence works meaning the riverside part of the pub plus unfortunately for them, the kitchen are closed for the time being. This left the small L-shaped front bar, a pleasant traditional room with an old stone flagged floor, half height panelled walls, framed cigarette cards, metal advertisements and golfing caricatures. There must have been a pool table at some time as a set of rules remain on a wall but no sign of the actual table on Friday afternoon.
Regular seating, Britannia tables plus one old sowing machine conversion, the end wall had a banquette and a few small stools. There are a pair of gaming machines and a juke box which remained unused throughout my stay. A pair of TVs remained off.
A bit of a local feel, it is pretty much off the tourist trail here being the opposite direction from the station to the town and seafront, a gaggle of chatty locals were perched on bar stools and engaging in lively conversation while someone's Labrador sprawled across the floor.
Obviously no food while the kitchen endures the enforced closure, only one ale, Ringwood BB which was served very cold indeed although it wasn't bad after it had warmed up a bit.
Only having part of the pub open means that the full picture cannot be shown, on that basis I'm not leaving a rating however I thought it was a proper convivial and lively pub that is worth looking in. Accommodation is advertised.
