“Worth a visit”
Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

Have eaten here on a number of different occasions for breakfast, lunch and dinner and am yet to receive anything other than fantastic food and service. No matter what the meal or the staff on he duty the experience has always been a pleasure. Have absolutely no probem recommending as they are equally good whether you want a quiet sunday breakfast, a boistrous family lunch or a more romantic meal for two.

“Not as good as last visit”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

Three stars is average but four is very good....would have given three and a half for "good" if it was possible! This is undoubtedly a good restaurant but this visit was not as memorable as our last. The starter of pigeon breast and black pudding was lovely but SO small for the price. The same could be said of the risotto starter. The mains were a bit more generous but the lamb rather tough. The garlic potatoes were not of their usual high standard either, being overcooked yet not crispy, and were very oily. Overall a little disappointing.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

I booked this particular restaurant on recommendations from my family. It was very busy however the owner ensured we had a table which accommodated my five year old. The Sunday lunch was to die for. I had sirloin roast of beef with all the trimmings, absolutely amazing . Wish I'd ate here all weekend as the Chinese the night before was very disappointing .

“Trip Advisor led me to one of the best in Arundel”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

Wanting to treat my partner to a lovely meal further afield from our local town, I resorted to Trip Advisor to search for the best restaurant in Arundel.

I booked several weeks ahead with a request for a chilled bottle to be ready to serve upon arrival. Sure enough the bottle was ready and quickly served.

In no more than ten minutes, after being welcomed and accommodated by three brilliant members of their team, we were made to feel very comfortable in cosy surroundings. The restaurant was extremely busy but never felt we were part of conversations by other guests.

Our conversation was silenced whilst we enjoyed the excellent food.

Superb evening made by superb staff.

To eat here, you certainly will not be disappointed.
