THE BLACK RABBIT INN

Offham - West Sussex

A large 27 acre rabbit warren existed nearby for 3 centuries until 1787. The keeper of the warren is said to have kept a public house there in the 18th century. The inn nearby was named after the warren, and was first recorded as the Black Coney. Before the mid 20th century it largely served the boatmen of the riverside traffic, and later, excursions from Arundel and Littlehampton who came to enjoy various recreations and the view of Arundel castle. In the 1890s there were bowls, croquet, tea gardens, and rowing boats were hired out. The inn was enlarged around 1900 and again in 1990.
