Description: The hollist arms is a beautiful old pub set in the heart of the village of Lodsworth. It is full of elegant charm and character with an eclectic mix of antique furniture and artefacts which enhance it's uniqueness. The Hollist has built a reputation for superb home cooked gastronomical delights by Serge and Sally, the chefs and owners, who have created a menu that excites and comforts. Serge's Mediterranean background, combined with his classic French training and years of gastronomical experience in France and England show in the quality of the food served. His philosophy is simple however. He prides himself on producing unpretentious food, generously portioned,sensibly priced and full of flavours. The Hollist has been nominated as one of the 25 best pubs in Sussex, with a special mention for outstanding roasts on Sundays (Sussex Life July 2013).The hollist also boasts an enviable wine list with wines sourced exclusively from small, independent vineyards; plus three fantastic, well kept real ales, one of which is a regularly changing guest ale. We look forward to meeting you.

We appreciated the down to earth friendly service in this village pub. The menu offers both Sunday roast and other options with a good wine list. There is a bar and open fire and the Hollist has kept a traditional atmosphere whilst offering good food and decor.

Every time we go there the food is fantastic! Flavours are amazing, the steak is really really good and I think they menu works quite well. Oh and the deserts are an absolute treat! (possibly the best deserts around the area- really really worth ordering, even if you are quite full after a generous main course..... Staff are friendly, it... More

I love a Sunday roast and this has got to be in my top 3 of roasts! I will add that The Chequers in Bath do an award winning Sunday roast but this little pub in the country tops it! The flavours from every individual element on the plate came together beautifully and the chef knows how to cook meat!... More

Lovely traditional pub in very pretty village. Staff are all very friendly and accommodating and the service was excellent throughout. Some very nice local ales (try the Langhams) and decent wine selection. Sunday lunch (beef) was cooked to perfection and good trimmings. Fish & chips and veggie dishes got thumbs up as well. All in all one of the very... More

Enjoyed a delicious Sunday lunch today ...food was excellent in every way...I enjoyed the tasty pork complete with crackling and apple sauce. The wine and service was good and the only reason I have not scored overall excellent is because there were 6 large dogs accompanied by their owners at different tables in the actual restaurant section of the pub....

On our first visit in the height of summer, we sat outside in the lovely gardens and enjoyed delicious food of generous proportions. The staff were friendly and accommodating and we were thrilled that we were able to take our... More

We dropped in to The Hollist Arms on our way home from Goodwood looking for a bite to eat. They had room for us and we had a very good meal indeed. The Bread and Butter Pudding was the best I have ever had. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming. Will definitely go there again.
