We went to the Richmond Arms for Sunday lunch. Food absolutely delicious, and the service was outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble. We kept changing our minds about where to sit: outside or in and they were incredibly accommodating, also in terms of the food. We have been to a few restaurants recently where the staff have refused to alter... More

A quite long list of tapa like starters with excellent prawns and squid and asparagus but the baby artichoke salad was exquisite. My pain I was told by the waitress was a cheap cut but tender...

Stayed here last night and enjoyed an exceptional meal, good value and very interesting menu. The starters were superb and we plumped for the squid and sardines. The mains of rib eye and Dover Sole were terrific too. The chocolate moose lived up to my usual high expectation & the wine list is extensive. The room [no 2] was spacious... More

Well this is the fourth time I've been there and again it didn't disappoint. I've eaten there for lunch and dinner and every time the food has been amazing. Not only that, the service is excellent but not intrusive. I would recommend very highly and each time I've been the menu has something different to temp you. Enjoy!!!!!!!!

We stay here on a regular basis as our family live nearby, and we've grown to love the Richmond Arms. We stayed again this weekend, and again it surpassed expectations. The rooms are wonderful, and we prefer the smaller room as it has a much nicer bathroom layout than the larger room does. The beds are a little too soft,... More

From the friendly welcome onwards everything about our stay was excellent. Extremely charming and comfortable room, excellent beer and a superb breakfast - local ingredients all round. The menu looked spot on and it's excellent location just outside Chichester make it a great base to explore this part of Sussex.

We've been to this place a few times now and every time the food is amazing. The atmosphere in this place is fantastic and it feels like a french bistro. The people working there are really friendly and I would suggest this restaurant to anyone.
