My wife and I stopped here for a drink. We were going to have dinner but food was not being served on Saturday evening. It looks like a great venue for a night out. We will come back to try the food another day

It was a cold night and we nipped in here to wait for the taxi to run us back to the hotel. We loved the layout and the small room at the front with comfy seats....liked the idea of selling second hand books for charity....More

Don't let the slightly run down exterior put you off. Really nice friendly staff who couldn't be more helpful. Good tasty food, freshly cooked, at a reasonable price.

Went here to grab a quick bite to eat told it would be half an hour after we'd paid for the food 45 minutes later still nothing. Got our money back and left! They don't have a clue!

I like coming here for a drink and there's a lovely beer garden but staff need to work on people skills. Aren't very friendly here and unless you are known to them then you tend to be ignored

Hi I am very sorry that you had this experience. Staff training is something that we take very seriously here, can you let me know roughly what time you visited our establishment on the Sunday?

The inside is very boring. People sit outside overlooking London Road, the main shopping street. Seating outside at the rear. No atmosphere inside.

One of Bognor's best known and well loved pubs, The William Hardwicke has something for everyone!

We have just launched our new restaurant 'Little Italy' serving authentic Italian cuisine seven days a week, from 12:00pm until 3:00pm. All food is freshly cooked and prepared in our kitchen by our experienced chefs.

Our coffee shop is open all day, everyday, with our trained barista’s making the finest Illy coffee and Damman Freres tea with delicious cakes and pastries.

Our cocktail bar is open Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 6.00pm. Alex and his team are excellent mixologists and create heaven in a glass. Cocktails are 2 for £8 from 6-9 each night. Please check our reviews................ lots of people say we are the best cocktail lounge on the South coast!

In the Evening we like to provide you with entertainment, ranging from a fun quiz and bands on a Sunday, karaoke on a Tuesday and DJs at the Weekend. We have 2 huge outside spaces, separate drinking and eating areas, plus a coffee shop......we can guarantee you will have a great day and night.
