“A relaxed rural delight”, this “convivial” 17th-century inn on the edge of Petworth Park has won high ratings for several years now, and “just can’t be faulted”. There’s “an interesting menu” of “beautifully executed, adventurous dishes”, many of them using “excellent locally sourced ingredients” (“suppliers are listed on a blackboard”), plus “hyper-local sparkling wine”.

With “a beautiful garden for relaxing in Summer and such a cosy interior for cold winters” – this very popular, “upmarket dining pub” in “a gorgeous part of the country beneath the South Downs and on the edge of Petworth Park” is something of a rural idyll with “always welcoming and jovial staff” and “imaginative food from local produce”.

"Both green vegetables were undercooked and tough, (long-stem brocolli and kale), which is a shame as everything else was fantastic: smoked fish with almonds and grapefruit, and a beautiful goat loin with smooth mash and root vegetables"

"Very popular for weddings, so can be crowoded at lunch time. Good food produced from local sources (it seems all trout is 'chalk stream' now. The Selsey crab was substantial. The market here is high on fish'n chips."
