Suzanne Davies achieves licensing success for the first “Sit and Sip”

We are delighted to have acted for JJB Bars Limited in obtaining a premises licences for Sit and Sip at 2A Northgate in Chichester, West Sussex. During that process, Suzanne Davies was able to successfully overcome initial Police concerns about the concept.

James Mattingley, the young entrepreneur behind this exciting new venture, describes Sit and Sip as “A boutique tasting room and bottle shop offering a range of craft beers and artisan spirits”.

Both beers and spirits will be served in taster, as well as regular, sized glasses and, in addition to tasting and consuming drinks on the premises, customers will be able to purchase drinks they have sampled to take away for consumption at home. Sit and Sip will also offer Taster Evenings, with guest speakers offering new craft ales and artisan spirits.

Trading throughout the week (including Sundays) from 9:00am until 11:00 pm, Sit and Sip is presently scheduled to open within the next couple of months. For more information and news of the opening, see

We wish our clients every success with what we believe will be a highly innovative and successful new addition to Chichester’s retail business sector.
