1/ 1/2 miles from Arundel alongside the castle past the wildlife trust and beyond Swanbourne Lake, you come to The Black Rabbit, a three hundred year old pub, quaint inside but wonderful sitting by the river Arun with far reaching views of Arundel Castle and the open fields. Constables most favourite painting was this view. Super friendly staff and excellent inexpensive food.

I choose to go to The Black Rabbit for my birthday today as I've heard wonderful reviews about it. We were invited in, and a member of staff sat us down with a smile. Food came quickly and we loved the wooden boards! Our waitress was so friendly and made us feel so comfortable and at home. She offered me a hot chocolate on the house as it was my birthday! It came with a lovely little candle and a toffee singing happy birthday! Overall made me feel very special and will come back very soon! Thanks for a lovely evening. X

A little off the beaten track, but a great reward for an hour's leisurely stroll along the riverbank from Arundel, with views of the wetlands centre and back to the castle along the way.

Staff were helpful, friendly and very professional, and the pub fare is the best of its type I've enjoyed in some time - and possibly the best chips served in any pub in England... Heartily recommended!!

We are Black Rabbit regulars and love the pub; it's situation and ambience are great. However were extremely disappointed with today's Sunday roast pork lunch: tough meat, burnt, brittle Yorkshire pudding, anaemic non - crispy roast potatoes and parsnips, and all barely warm.
Since the refurbishment it seems busier than ever but it would be a shame if the food does not live up to the rest of the attractions.

We wanted to choose a great pub and we were definitely not disappointed. Using the top table on line booking facility we booked a table for Saturday lunch and this was so easy and convenient and worthwhile as walking in on spec would have meant being disappointed as very busy. The food was great the service was great and can't wait to go back. Definitely recommend but book in advance
