We were staying near Goodwood for the weekend. We all wanted to go out for dinner but fancied something a bit different. Out came the ipad and we found this pub, it had had good reviews, it was friday so we were not too hopeful.... We were told that it was our lucky night as a table for 4 had... More

Couldn't fault the superb food or great service that we received on our second evening meal here. The choice of local and seasonal ingredients really sets this restaurant apart. My starter (crispy duck) was exquisite, my main (pigs cheeks) was incredible and my dessert (pannacotta) was truly the cherry on top of a perfect meal! My fiance had the scallops... More

It was my first visit to the Richmond Arms and safe to say it didn't disappoint! Wonderful and friendly service from the start and throughout coupled with a cozy yet quirky country pub experience with a great menu was always bound to be a winner. The food was fantastic, I opted for the Chorizo scotch egg and Beef Brisket -... More

This really is an excellent place to eat. We have never had anything but consistency at this restaurant, whether eating lunch time or evenings, Wednesday to Sunday. The staff are always pleased to see you and we do have a bit of a soft spot for Anna as she is always so helpful when I send my guests who are... More

On the back of trip-advisor recommendations took my parents and son to the Richmond for my mothers birthday. It was a Sunday and the pub did seem more a restaurant than a pub. Chorizo scotch egg and fries with eyes(sprats) for starters. Looked good tasted even better. Roast sirloin for my guests and Dover sole for me. Beef was apparently... More

We came here a couple of years ago and raved about it then, so it was good to be back and find that the menu was still as exciting and varied as before. Really good to see some unusual dishes and combinations of flavours that genuinely make it hard to choose what to go for. Recommended without hesitation and well... More

We celebrated our wedding anniversary on 7th February and following the wonderful reviews, decided to book. I must say, that I am so pleased we did. The service was really good, attentive and welcoming. The food was exceptional, so we will definitely be returning. Thank you, thank you, thank you...

A real find. Totally unprepossesing exterior ("I'll keep driving") hides an excellent restaurant with charming friendly service and really good food. Good beer, though I'm not sure how many regulars would drink here, and reasonably priced unusual wines add to an all round above average experience. The veggie dish was particularly praiseworthy both for thought, presentation and taste and woodcock... More

Popped in for a drink and was so impressed by the menu had to go back for a meal. Booked a table for four on valentines night and took both rooms above the bar.

I feel I have to review this restaurant again due to some of the negative comments I have seen on Trip Advisor. I have eaten here possibly 30 to 40 times over the years, at different times of the day and I can honestly say I have never had a disappointing course, note not meal, course, something I that I...
