Tucked away between the West Hampnett Roundabout and the McDonalds just off the A27 Eastbound likes one of the more unique places to dine out in Chichester. Since 2015, The Pass has redefined the roadside café experience, serving quality food that’s wholesome, delicious and on-par with what diners can expect from full-sized Chichester restaurants at prices that won’t break the bank.
Whether it’s a chance to grab a bite after a day out on the lake with Chichester Watersports or merely a pitstop on the way through to explore the universe at South Downs Planetarium, The Pass is tailor-made for top-notch meals on the go. It’s also popular with locals, who can take a much-needed break from bargain hunting and the weekly shop with Portfield Retail Park nearby.
The little eatery on wheels may not offer the dining experience of typical restaurants in Chichester, but diners will be very glad they stopped by. On warmer days, it’s one of the best places to eat in Chichester for families, who will find picnic bench seating next to the truck where they can dine al fresco. Staff are also very friendly and make everything to order so that it’s the best quality and piping hot.
The international menu at The Pass is certainly one that will please foodies. They have a selection of gourmet burgers such as the spicy Mexican or their Ultimate Ultimate, which is packed with chorizo, spiced pork and two rashers of bacon. They also love to get creative and their changing menus have included the likes of crispy duck buns, pork tacos, Moroccan-style lamb and Korean-style brisket.
From pit-stops with the family to a cheeky treat after work, The Pass is sure to be a winner. Any occasion will be even more of a treat for tastecard members who can look forward to exclusive restaurant savings when they call to book ahead and present their cards upon arrival. It’s a good chance to treat themselves to extra drinks or to tackle their Ultimate burger.
