If your party at home is going well then the likelihood of running out of alcohol is probably quite high. In the past this would have meant trudging out at all hours to the nearest off-license or finding a non-drinker to do a beer run. In the bad old days if the alcohol ran dry past closing time then the options were very limited indeed. However, since the licensing laws changed the options for late-night drinkers have expanded greatly with both late night off-licenses and home alcohol delivery options available throughout the West Sussex area including: Worthing, Angmering, Rustington, Littlehampton, Bognor Regis, Tangmere and Chichester. This means revelers can raise a glass knowing that the night doesn’t have to fall flat due to lack of alcohol.
The main off-licence options in West Sussex are the supermarkets, namely Tesco and Asda. Some other providers, like the Applegreen petrol station in Crawley, have applied for 24-hour licenses but met with opposition from the police and other responsible parties which put a stop to later opening times.
Late Night Off-Licenses in West Sussex
Tesco Littlehampton: Broadpiece, Littlehampton, BN17 5RA – 01903 547 00 (open 24 hours Mon – Fri; 12 am on Saturdays).
Asda Crawley: Pegler Way, Crawley, RH11 7AH – 01293 663400 (open 24 hours Mon – Fri; 10 pm on Saturdays).
The other option for late-night alcohol is to buy from one of the home delivery providers that operate in the area. Home delivery is usually slightly more expensive than collecting from the supermarket or off-license but then, you are paying for late-night availability along with the convenience of someone delivering to your door. For those who have yet to order a delivery of alcohol the good news is that is fairly straightforward – a bit like ordering a pizza. However, remember that the licensing laws still apply so you may be asked to provide I.D. when taking receipt of the delivery, especially if you look under 21.
