I love eating at The Richmond Arms, I feel very lucky to have got a table on Valentine's night. I booked a table for two a few weeks ago then mentioned to some friends at the last minute we were going and they wanted to join us, Anna was a superstar and one way or another managed to sort us...

Best restaurant in the Chichester area by far.The 48 hour cooked brisket is really good and served with delicious chunky fries and home made coleslaw..The pork belly dim sum starter was cleverly prepared with great attention to balance of flavours.The chef is obviously talented and knows food.

My wife and I had dinner here this evening and hugely enjoyed it. The service was impeccable, the welcome friendly and smiling and the food was excellent both in presentation and taste. As soon as we were seated we were brought menus swiftly followed by a bottle of iced water and a 'bucket' of bread. For starters we I had... More

We enjoyed an excellent evening at this delightful pub. Unfortunately so did everyone else so the noise was very overpowering! Our dinner was very good and the service was friendly and helpful. We will certainly return when we are next in the area.

I’d wanted to dine at the Richmond Arms for ages as it has a terrific reputation locally. The pub is renowned for its rather quirky and unusual menu so expect lots of interesting ingredient pairings throughout the menu - some intriguing… others just downright odd and a little bit “oh no, I don’t think so”. We chose our starters off... More

We have heard many good things about this restaurant but until last night, hadn't sampled its delights. It certainly exceeded all our expectations. A thoroughly brilliant evening with utterly delicious food. I don't think we have had such a wonderful meal in simply ages. Among some of the things we ate were crispy squid, slow cooked brisket, pheasant and absolutely... More
