We walked past the Gravy Boat and discounted eating there partly because of the plastic menus and also because of the name. However whilst having a drink at the New Inn the landlady recommended it as the top place for food in Littlehampton. So retracing our steps we found a lively lunchtime venue which although doing a carvery had a very interesting menu as well. I’m usually a little sceptical of restaurants with such large menus but I needn’t have been worried. Starters including my excellent goats cheese, pear and walnut salad were top drawe and my main of fish pie was faultless. There were a couple of mistakes: my wife’s haddock had a small bone left in and the fish skin could have been crispy or removed. The pizza was fine as was the sea bass and the only pudding tried, the cheesecake was great. Portions were substantial, the service very friendly and the prices including for the wine were reasonable. All in all an excellent find. I’m no marketing expert but I would change the name as the Gravy Boat sounds a bit downmarket which this restaurant definitely is not.
