We have been dining at the Richmond Arms for the last three years and think its about time I gave it the credit it's due. We are always eager to read the menu on arrival (which changes regularly) to see the delights on offer and the food is just outstanding and never fails to blow us away with its mouthwatering... More

We have visited this pub on a few occasions, typically after going to the beach at West Wittering. We always sit outside as we have dog and they aren't allowed in the pub - the only downside (please change that policy as it is so antiquated). We always have lunch - the menu is extensive and inventive. Not like I... More

We have visited the Richmond Arms for Sunday lunch many times including on mothers day. The food is outstanding! The best Sunday lunch by far. The service and atmosphere is equally as impressive.

Wow! What a find. We orginally booked a table here thinking we'd opt for the Pizza, but so glad we didn't! From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel very welcome, the waitress spoke highly of the owners, explaining that one was the chef. She was very knowledgable, complimented our choice of food and recommended wine. In our... More

We had heard so many good things about this restaurant so we booked for a Friday evening. It was absolutely packed, we had to park quite a way down the road, which was not a problem as it was a nice evening. We strolled into the right hand side of this restaurant, only obvious entrance, and advised the staff member... More

We have eaten here many times and we have not once had a bad meal. Staff are fantastic and helpful - I have often been downsold dishes to tempt me to try something new. The attention to the quality of the produce along with the best cooking in the area. Downside the dining room is tiny so you cannot always... More

The Richmond Arms is not near anywhere, but why should it be? It takes a bit of effort to get there but you won’t regret it. What was a village pub is now a restaurant of some class. You can still sit outside with a pint or two but inside is set out for informal restaurant dining. The menu is... More
