The History of the Anglesey Arms

The 1st Marquess of Anglesey was a celebrated hero due to his charge over the British cavalry during the battle of Waterloo, in which he sacrificed his leg! Lord Anglesey’s courageous battle achievements are honoured through the coat of arms.

The five lions represent dauntless courage, and the shield is surrounded by the collar of the Order of the Garter (his most senior order of Knighthood) which is specific to the 1st Marquess.

Lord Anglesey’s daughter, Caroline, later married the 5th Duke of Richmond who also fought in the battle of Waterloo, and to no surprise is the man behind ‘The Richmond Arms’ sign at the entrance gates to Goodwood.

End of Summer Party

Friday 23rd September

That's a wrap folks, the end of summer has arrived and it’s time to close the season with a bang. Join us for an evening of entertainment to see off the summer and welcome the Autumn.


Our recent renovation has refreshed this enchanting pub, whilst keeping the traditional charm of the original ceiling beams and herringbone floor.

Settled on the Goodwood estate makes for an obvious coupling of horse racing and classic motor curiosities, both of which are featured throughout the interior.

With a cosy snug upon entrance, snuggle up in front of our open fireplace, or retreat into our intimate dining room, you won’t be short on hideaways.


Goodwood is home to a whole host of fantastic events; world famous for its Festival of Speed and competitive horse racing, the electric atmosphere is guaranteed at every occasion.

For those lesser speed demons, the Estate is also home to two golf courses and a cricket pitch.

Not to forget the historic 300 year history of the Goodwood House and Estate that boast stunning panoramic landscapes all year round!
