Lots of people say The George is the best pub in West Sussex. Now I know why! Can't fault the food - starters were delicious, especially the baked Camembert and tuna carpaccio but it was the fish and chips for lunch that really blew us away. Not had anything in the same league for as long as I can remember!... More

Superb location in small village in the midst of the South Downs. Parking is extremely limited. Good menu at high prices. Food we had was quite good but not worth the money or the wait. Not worth the effort.

Met family here for lunch but after arriving just after 1.30pm on a Sat was told they had shut the kitchens as they were too busy. We had drinks and waited a while hoping they would reopen but after a while decided to find somewhere else to eat. Very disappointing as the food looked lovely. Also don't be deceived by... More

We have just enjoyed a really lovely lunch at The George. It is well worth the drive up to the village from the main Arundel road. The welcome was warm, the service was attentive without being intrusive and the food was really good. We had salt and pepper squid, sardines to start followed by pork belly and a smoked haddock...

The George isn't really a pub. It's more a restaurant with a couple of tables for drinkers. The staff are irritated and harried, trying to take multiple orders at once and then forgetting to collect payment from the right people. Staff were obnoxious and seemed irritated that we wanted to have a drink in their pub. I would avoid and... More

Management response:

This review comes from a large group of youths who arrived en masse during a busy Easter lunch. We were not impressed that they brought their own food and drink to consume on our premises, so politely asked them not to do so. Sadly they interpreted this not unreasonable request as unfriendliness! We welcome large groups who behave well and... More

Well this pub just gets better and better, the fish and best chips I have ever had was amazing and my husband had roast pork which was really good followed by treacle tart and custard, we weren't rushed at all and had a leisurely lunch with good service!!

Service poor and staff appeared stressed -waited 35 minutes for drinks to be served from order being taken: in a pub! The restaurant lacked atmosphere; there was no buzz and the continual heavy footed stomping of the manager (I assume - the guy with red rimmed glasses) around the place just ended up being annoying. The menu lacked choice given... More

All had just the main course. I had the chicken and prawn pie asked could I have chips instead of mash no problem would recommend the pie. One friend had wild boar sausages said spicy but not too hot. The other had duck was lovely. Asked were meals ok. Attentative service. Lovely walks also in the area.

We stumbled across the George on Saturday. It was busy and we had not booked but there were tables available. Despite this they said we would need to sit outside which suited us as it was very sunny and warm. The service was slow and the bar service was below what I would expect to be honest. Both floor waitresses... More

This unique 17th century Inn houses a wonderful British restaurant and pub. You'll find it at the heart of the delightful Sussex village of Burpham, just 4 km from historic Arundel, surrounded by the glorious South Downs National Park. The menus are classic “best of British” food with a modern twist. Everything is home cooked with the freshest seasonal ingredients, locally sourced where possible. That means the specials menu changes all the time, so your tastebuds will always be delighted. Open for lunch 12-2 or 12-3 weekends, and from 6pm for dinner. Great wine menu and local Real Ale. This is a very family friendly place; well-behaved dogs are welcome to sit under the table in the pub area whilst you dine. Groups, weddings and private parties love it here and come back year after year. Bookings are recommended especially for Sunday lunch as it's always very busy.
