Unique place!

Visited Arundel and stayed over for the weekend, we found Sage tucked away in a little mews on Tarrant Steet which is just off the High Street.. What a find! Lanterns hanging on plants, beautiful music and a greeting to match. Hadn't booked and it was busy, but the host found us a table for two in... read more

Re visited Arundel for bank holiday weekend and after contemplating trying one of the many other restaurants we passed Sage and once again were drawn in by the music, atmosphere and that sunny terrace. It was a packed out lunch time but Luckily there was a table just being cleared and we were warmly invited to take it. Great afternoon... More

Visited for lunch. Seating outside or inside, depending on your preference. Good variety of dishes on the printed menu, as well as a Specials board. We had the bacon, brie and tomato tart with salad (£8.50) from the Specials and the authentic toasted baguette with bacon, brie and cranberry (£7). Clearly, we were both on a bacon and brie trip!...

What a wonderful find. We had lunch on Sunday of bank holiday weekend and loved everything about this friendly and charming restaurant. Great menu choice and service. Sun was shining and the Rose wine, coupled with authentic French food, was just the perfect way to spend a day. Ignore previous ridiculous comment regarding dog, owners sweet French bulldog LuLu was... More

We wanted a drink outside and saw people drinking coffee at a table. We Sat down at the furthest table from restaurant since we had a sausage dog with us and sat on a table you could not eat on because of the slope it was on to have a drink. Husband went to order and waitress advised if not... More

Firstly we must apologise if you feel you have been treated discourteously. Unfortunately we cannot identify which waitress your husband spoke to as you do not mention the date or time of day this incident occurred. We pride ourselves on customer service and our staff are highly trained to deal with customers needs whether that be for a coffee or... More

Whenever I am in the area I always head to this very good little bistro tucked up a small mews in Tarrant street. Once seated on the sunny terrace with a glass of rose you could easily think you were in France! The food is consistent good value and tasty without any pretension or stuffiness. The ambiance too is warm... More

Passing through Arundel on our way to Brighton on a Friday evening, my fiancée and I decided to park the car and find a place for dinner. Heading away from the usual suspects on the High Street (Prezzo and co), we heard relaxing French cafe music drifting from a tastefully decorated restaurant 20 ft from the road, so explored. Greeted... More

Meal very disappointing, meat very tough and fatty. Not at all what we expected given the reviews on trip advisor. A dog is resident in the restaurant so if you don't like dogs enter at your peril.

Obviously we are very sorry you found your meal very disappointing. You mentioned meat being tough and fatty, you don't mention which meat, we have fillet tail - steak minion, local free range meaty pork chops, breast of chicken, and duck. All supplied by a reputable and consistently reliable butcher as all the other reviewers have experienced which as you... More
