Harden's survey result
“Deservedly popular, local chef-run place in the middle of town” – a simply but effectively decorated operation run by Lee & Liz Parsons, which won very consistently high ratings all-round this year for its “thoughtful but relaxed service” and “wonderful” cooking that “makes brilliant use of local produce” to create “fantastic flavours”: “the bread alone tells you the place knows its stuff!” A meal comes “at a realistic price” too.
The “very refined cooking” at this “accomplished” and “cosy” yearling – a first venture from chef Lee Parsons, who worked under Raymond Blanc at Le Manoir, and his wife Liz – has won unanimous praise from reporters. The focus is on West Sussex produce at reasonable prices: “the set lunch is remarkable value compared with many gastropubs”.
Chef Lee Parsons – who honed his skills at Raymond Blanc’s Le Manoir et al – and wife Liz have opened their first restaurant in this picturesque town, showcasing West Sussex produce.
