The New port Arms

welcome to the new port arms

A harbourside pub, kitchen & venue

The New Port Arms, a beautiful harbourside pub, restaurant and function venue in Southwick is an exciting addition to the local pub and restaurant scene.

Arranged over two floors in an extraordinary setting right at the water’s edge, the venue boasts a spectacular south facing terrace with its own moorings right on the water and unparalleled views of Shoreham’s working port, lock gates and leisure craft marinas.

The pub, with its contemporary New England vibe, serves up an impressive range of craft beers, a superb selection of wines and, of course, everyone’s favourite premium tipple.

The Kitchen offers a delicious menu and our daily dishes and Sunday lunches are already getting rave reviews.  All our dishes feature some of the amazing locally produced ingredients that Sussex and the South Coast has to offer.


In the warmer weather, you can expect our quay-side south-facing terrace to be the place to be with al fresco dining and relaxing with a cool drink by the water's edge - it truly is one of the South Coast's hidden gems!

Our upstairs function room is a great size and space for personal  celebrations or business meetings catering for 25 for seated dining and 50 guests for a buffet event and has its own bar, stage and balcony - perfect for anyone looking for somewhere with a distinct wow factor.

But don't just take our word for it - see what everyone is saying!

We are planning outdoor Salsa lessons, a music festival, a beer festival, a wedding fair, a craft fair (following the outstanding success of our Christmas Craft Fair back in December) and we'll also be showing selected sports and major events on the big screen! With Valentine's just around the corner - we're planning something suitably romantic - details coming soon!

St Patrick's Day Celebrations

Ah. St Patrick's Day. And there's nowhere quite like The New Port Arms in which to celebrate it.

A day of Guinness, ridiculous hats (we've got some of those), terrible attempts at an Irish accent, Guinness, laughter, bad Irish dancing, Guinness, appalling Frank Carson impressions, that B*Witched song... come along for the craic!

Did we mention Guinness? Ruairi might just do one of those fancy shamrocks on the top of your pint for you! And there's entertainment planned - with more details coming soon!
