For £14.95 I and my friends, as usual, had a fabulous lunch at the Chardonnay. Nothing is too much trouble for Andy, the manager. As soon as you enter the establishment you feel at home and welcomed. Coats are taken on arrival and sitting at the bar area with drinks and nibbles, while you peruse the menu in a very... More

For the 2nd year running, our local wine appreciation group booked this restaurant for our Xmas 'do'. There were 12 of us. We were welcomed in a most friendly manner and served drinks in the bar before being shown to our table. Despite the restaurant being busy, the food was on time and it was very good with larger than... More

Last night be had a fantastic meal at this restaurant. We ate from the set menu and thought we had excellent value for money. The bread basket was fantastic and you must have the coffee as the added extra is well worth it!

Family booked dinner here this week for a random December get together. Used to come here years ago, as I lived within walking distance...and a couple of times since for Xmas dinner. Why I had not thought of coming here recently is beyond me, as it's consistently good, service, food, parking, location. Chardonnay...we will be back soon and will recommend.... More

I went for a multiple birthday meal on Friday 21st Nov and had a lovely round table in the conservatory area (which is probably the best place to be with room to move & a decent view). From the moment of arrival to when you are lead to your table, to when you sample the (complementary) delicious homemade basket of... More

I go to the Chardonnay on special occasions. Not because its expensive because the set menu is only £14.95 but for the whole ambience. You are welcomed and your coats are taken, you are seated given the menu and left alone for a few minutes to settle in. You are then brought nibbles and drinks orders are taken. After drinks...

I visited The Chardonnay on Thursday 13th November, taking with me husband and wife clients, for lunch. We were welcomed warmly and invited to either sit at our table immediately to look at the menu or sit in the bar with a pre lunch drink, while looking at the menus. We chose the latter and sat at a cosy alcove... More

The Chardonnay is more traditional in its manner and environment and subsequently delivers great service and food for a great dining experience. Prices are a little higher perhaps but the quality of the food from start to finish is excellent, with a varying menu throughout the year. From the moment you walk through the door to the moment you leave,... More

Every visit is excellent. They change their 'fixed price' menu 4 or 5 times a year and we try to make sure we go at least once for each menu. Their specialty is the basket of different breads to compliment the meal and you are usually served with a little tasty from the Chef before the first course. It is... More

Proudly old-school restaurant which overlooks the A24 just a few miles north of Worthing. Plenty of adjacent well-lit off-road parking. Even at 6.30pm on a Saturday evening, punters were rolling in and being made comfortable in the bar area to examine the menu and comprehensive wine list whilst partaking of olives, bombay mix and (in our case) the particles of...
