Dating from 1840, The Steam Packet pub stands on the banks of the River Arun, overlooking the site where the cross-channel steam packet ferry service ran between Littlehampton and Honfleur between 1863 and 1882.

The pub has been closed since 2007 but has been lovingly restored to its original Victorian splendour by the current owners.

The Steam Packet offers a tempting selection of real ales, lagers and fine wines, delicious home-cooked food and holiday accommodation.



Come and enjoy the best of British produce. All our food is seasonal, sourced locally and cooked freshly to order. Choose from a mouthwatering selection of dishes including daily fish specials, utilising the wonderful produce available on our coastal doorstep.


Fancy a few days away? The Steam Packet offers accommodation in two well-appointed self-catering apartments just a stone's throw from the river, Littlehampton's town centre and beaches and public transport links.


If you're thirsty, The Steam Packet offers a range of refreshing lagers, expertly-selected fine wines and scrumptious real ales, including beers from local breweries. Enjoy your refreshments in an historic, scenic location overlooking the beautiful harbour.
