Good Value, Quality Food

Friday lunch before the Bank Holiday weekend. We had the 'all day breakfast' - didn't fail to impress with the quality and quantity. Desserts - Exceptional Tiramisu - this , I found out , had been made 'In House' by the owners' wife who is Italian. The best I have tasted.

I visited Butler's recently with my wife and on the whole thought it was very good. With a few relatively minor tweaks this place could tick all the boxes for an excellent independent, family run restaurant/bar. Location is fantastic; if you haven't been to Arundel it is well worth a visit, and Butlers is right in the centre of it... More

Visiting Arundel from Ireland on Sunday 16th. August and based on Trip Advisor reviews, I prebooked Butler's restaurant for a group of five adults and two children for Sunday lunch. What a wonderful choice of restaurant. Staff were welcoming and helpful, especially as one adult and one child have gluten intolerance. The food and service was outstanding and I have... More

Booked Butlers for Sunday lunch last week with kids and mother-in-law, as it had good reviews. Smart yet cosy inside and the staff were very friendly. We all had different roasts, lamb, beef and pork, which is the great advantage of going out! The best bit was a large dish of at least 5 types of fresh veg, delicious swede... More

Loved the food here. Came after reading reviews on TripAdvisor. It was well worth it. Spacious restaurant and not crowded at all with neutral and elegant décor. Very good food and service and portions of a good size for us as we had been walking all day!

Nice internal atmosphere. Excellent service. Pretty good menu and a nice looking 2- course set menu at £15, albeit just on one small chalk board that we had to get up to read! From that menu, the tomato and mozzarella was fine. But my "ducks breast" was very poor - mainly leg, stringy, and unappetising. Partner had a better steak... More

Went here with some friends for lunch. We all had differnt meals from the 2courses special menu and every one of us agreed that the food and service was exceedingly good. Would thoroughly recommend this restaurant for the quality of the meal and the service.

We went for a family dinner for my husband's birthday and we all thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful atmosphere and elegant but rustic decor. One of the best medium-rare steak's I have had for a long time. Wine was excellent and staff were friendly and attentive. A little pricey (we went on a Saturday night) but the quality of food was...
