“Wonderful celebration”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

We held a private dinner party here to celebrate my parents diamond wedding anniversary. Nic provided us with a thoughtfully prepared menu, catering well for the various tastes and appetites of our group. The ambience was delightful, and the food excellent. Nik is a perfect host, courteous and efficient. He charmed us all! Everyone was full of praise for the evening and we would definitely recommend the old greenhouse unreservedly.

“Private dining 19 May 2012”
Reviewed May 21, 2012

This was not our first visit to The Old Greenhouse as we have been several times before for family celebrations and also for some of the events held during the year. For this occasion we went as a family for private dining. As always Nik was the perfect host. Nothing is too much trouble, special dietary requirements catered for and super food as always. If you are looking for private dining for up to 16 I could not recommend this highly enough. Nik will provide excellent food, locally sourced (and sometimes hand foraged!) where possible and always of a very high standard. We had a lovely evening largely due to Nik's attentiveness to our every need.

“Unusual venue with good food.”
Reviewed January 31, 2012

Nik the owner used to have the much missed Platters restaurant in Chichester. He now has an excellent B&B and 'Old Greenhouse' eaterie.
This is quite a small intimate place to eat. I don't think you can book it on the 'off chance' you need to be aware of when Nik is doing his special nights by signing up to his newsletter or his mobile site - mobile.82Fishbourne.co.uk
The food is well cooked and can range from the basic to the quite complex. Have been to both and were very enjoyable.
