it was a dismal misty winter's afternoon in January when we came across Arundels. It is situated right beside a small pier with a few fishing boats moored to it. To our surprise, when we went in, it was full with a queue, not what we expected at this time of year. There is a small bar at one side... More

On a warm day, we stopped for fish & chips and a Guinness. We were well received, and the food came promptly. Great F & C with good views over a small harbour.

It proved an inspired decision as the meal was fantastic with a great selection and food was superbly cooked and presented.... More

Arundels is family owned and run. It is a combination of intimate gastro pub and restaurant, in fine weather one can also eat outside and enjoy the stunning views over the small harbour with moored yachts and fishing boats. The specials board offers the freshest of sea food cooked imaginatively, no small portions here. in the busy season reserve ahead... More
