“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Had a long weekend in Bracklesham bay and came across the beach house on Saturday whilst trying to find somewhere to have dinner. What a find the food is superb and the staff cannot do enough for you for the type of food and quality it is also very reasonable. We plan to go back in August and stay in one of the guest rooms.

“Coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

I would highly recommend a visit to this licenced restaurant and Bed and Breakfast. We stopped there today for coffee and it is a very smart upmarket delightful place. Wonderful coffee and lovely service. The menu is very impressive and can't wait to go back to eat!

“Beautifully presented food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Beautiful decor and a welcoming host started this visit well, then my starter was like a work of art and although small, adequate. Main course again, looked fabulous - a chicken salad which had masses of chicken but could have had a stronger dressing. When my friends' desserts - (chocolate brownies)arrived they looked so good I began to wish I liked them...then the creme caramel looked lovely, decorated with raspberries and sauce but sadly "a selection of local ice creams" should have been labelled " chioce" as it was not as I expected, little scoops of different flavours but I had to choose and it was a flavour in a pot.
The staff were very friendly and the atmosphere good though.

“Fabulous dinner and service in lovely surroundings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

We have just spent a weekend camping at West Wittering, and this restaurant was voted by our group as the best place to dine. When we arrived late for our reservation (I had phoned to warn the staff) we were greeted by the owner as we approached the door, and she immediately asked if we'd managed to set up camp and get settled. She offered us a dining spot either inside the restaurant or out on the verandah, and we were given more cushions and outside heaters were lit to make us comfortable. All of the staff were as friendly and helpful as the owner, and they couldn't do enough to make our experience a good one. We had three children in our party and they were delighted with the food selections. The baked camembert was voted as the most delicious ever, and the tempura prawns were fresh and crispy. Food was passed around the table so that everyone could try different dishes. Our only disappointment was that we were all too full for dessert. The relaxed 'beach house' ambiance of this restaurant matched the food and service. We will definitely be returning to this gem of a restaurant again.

“Perfect, seaside family restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

There's nothing flash or self-important about this little place close to the ever-popular West Wittering beach. It is a redbrick B&B which also happens to have a nice, family-owned eatery downstairs.

Perfect for a good meal with the family, with just a twist of sophistication, after a day on the beach.

They do some nice, locally-caught fish (usually from nearby East Wittering or Selsey which is famed for its crab) or a very good and decently sized-steak. All the wines are affordable and the service is friendly, quick and attentive.

This is basic fair; but the ingredients are good, seasonal and cooked far better than some far more expensive, fussy places I've encountered. And the odd, much appreciated and imaginative touch, like including some samphire on the menu will appeal to the fussy grown-ups.

Far, far better than stopping at the Little Chef on the way back home from a day on the beach.
