The Steam Packet one of Littlehampton’s iconic, historic public houses has re-opened it’s doors after the previous operator ceased trading some years ago.
Now fully refurbished and including holiday letting accommodation, the Steam Packet offers an exciting and delicious menu including locally caught sea food and meat and produce from local farms and suppliers.
In my view, this is a wonderful example of a regeneration project funded by enthusiastic private entrepreneur, Mr Mark Pester, who really has achieved something special with this development, which adds value and character to River Road, Littlehampton.
From 1863 to 1882, the pub was the departing/embarking point for the cross-Channel ferry service of packet ships which operated between Littlehampton and Honfleur.
Located only a few minutes walk from Littlehampton’s town centre and train station, I’d imagine this will be a very popular attraction. Including holiday letting accommodation in the rebuild is a terrific idea with West Beach only a short walk over the red foot/cycle bridge which is just outside the Steam Packet’s door.
