We booked a family Sunday Lunch where we booked a specific table three weekends before the event. When we arrived on time they said the table had been booked to someone else ! The inexperienced waiter spilt my fathers beer as he placed it down and just walked off hardly 5 star service. A bottle of sparkling water was ordered... More

First evening visit and a lovely meal it was. Good local ales and excellent choices on the menu. Mackeral starter was perfectly balanced and all the fish we had was excellent. Only criticism was one we have in many restaurants which is the over use of salt. Efficient and friendly service. Great to have a good choice of wine in... More

Found them in Mr and Mrs Smith and would recommend. The food is absolutely first rate, and all the people there are incredibly hospitable and professional. We stayed in the cottage which was comfy and well decorated. The location is off the beaten track. Not a huge amount to do except strolls and breathing the sea air. We went for... More

Stayed here for 1 night on a recent visit to Chichester Festival theatre. This charming pub/restaurant with rooms is only a short drive from the city centre but feels like it's in another world. We stayed in a standard room which was nicely done in a contemporary coastal style. The bed was very comfortable. The room was quite compact and... More

Popped in here after walking around Pagham harbour with a friend - wow - delicious food, friendly staff, great service and the best fish and chips I have ever eaten :-). Will be returning with a friend for a Christmas meal soon and looking forward to it.

The prices were very high and therefore the value for money... More

Probably the most sincere friendly welcome I have ever received. The food is not cheap but given the very high quality and exquisite presentation it is great value for money. We sat in the courtyard to the rear and were delighted to find that the service was attentive and swift.
