Me and my family went for a christmas meal. The food was amazing, but somehow the food came out before we even had our drinks. The two waitresses basically ignored us for the whole time we were there. There were clearly inexperienced and did every job at a snails pace. They weren't even busy. When we first came in there...

Around 50 to 60 of us had booked for an evening set Christmas meal. The service, quality and quantity would have given many a good hotel a run for their money. The food was piping hot, veg cooked to perfection and each plate nicely presented. Well done all of you! Great value for money.

Visited recently. Food served up cold and inedible. Potatoes rock hard. The meals were taken away and came back and potatoes seemed to have been dunked in oil to cook quickly. Only problem was, they tasted very oily and still hard. When mentioned upon paying the bill, the reaction was ok, I'll tell the chef. Won't be going bank, which... More

I booked the Cottage Room at the Walnut Tree on behalf of the Chichester Bowmen for a Christmas meal for 34 members of the club. There are always reservations about booking for a group this size whether the food and service will be any good. I am pleased to say that both were excellent! The meal was served efficiently, hot...

I've driven past numerous times and thought I had to try it. Checked the menu on the Internet and that looked nice. We arrived and it was packed, thought "we're not going to get in here." Anyway, we were found a table after ordering, which wasn't the best, but they did ask us if it was ok before we ordered.... More

Excellent service from very friendly bar and restaurant staff. Food quality good with blackboard choice. Quick but not rushed service. Birthday treat from my wife who insisted that I had a couple of points before the meal!

It had had a refurb, very tasteful and a new manager. It was crowded but the manager showed us to our table, offered to serve drinks and when... More
