We booked a Sunday night at the hotel, which was quite good, but not the restaurant. Came down to dinner Sunday evening and were offered the a la carte menu. One first course of liver was partially raw, sent back and not charged for. When...More

We dined here twice this week. The first time I would have given an excellent score; this time - poor. Both times our meals were excellent. The first time the service was very good - we loved the shot glass of Smarties presented with the...More

Here I go again - we are so lucky to live in this area and this is another good pub. The food is good, tasty and not too expensive. We went there last week with a Japanese friend who was visiting, as a rule the...More

Stopped in here for Sunday lunch as was in the area, the food tasted nice but was very pretentious. Rather small portions for the price they were charging for them. The staff were happy and attentive but sorry we will definitely look for somewhere else...More

Attractive old pub which I had often passed when driving between Petworth and Midhurst. Had a chance, one recent midweek evening, to call in for a meal. I hadn't realised that what I could see from the A272 was actually the rear of the establishment....More

Our menu bursts with locally sourced and seasonal ingredients. Fish, game and traditional English and Mediterranean dishes. There is always something to excite the appetite A simple but elegant decor includes fabulous open fires, with dining offered in a choice of intimate nooks. In good weather alfresco dining on our pretty terrace or in the sheltered garden is idyllic. Small group bookings are easily accommodated in one of several private dining rooms. A connoisseur's wine list complements the menu, including local sparkling wines. Many are served by the glass to help you discover a favourite! A fine selection of Sussex ales is also available.
