Four miles from Chichester, and bordering the South Downs National Park, this 200-year-old pub-with-rooms is part proper boozer (upfront) and part tastefully arty restaurant offering ambitious gastrofare. Reporters this year praised the “warm ambience” and a “treat” of a menu that features some “standout courses” such as scallops and venison.

A short drive from Chichester (in the direction of Goodwood), this 200-year-old converted barn is nowadays “a proper boozer at the front and full of local village characters”. “But at the back, in its art-filled restaurant, it serves pub classics like fish ’n’ chips and a proper pie of the day alongside more ambitious fare”.

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
