I know that's a bit bold but for sheer quality of food and presentation - and of equal importance, consistency, they win all our prizes. We try to eat out at least once a month and Cassons is only matched by 2 other kitchens, one of which is a private club.
Don't be put off by its apparent downside, namely, its location. Being parked on the side of the A27 is hardly prepossessing and it is easy to miss the turning on your first visit. Press on, for the rewards are worth it! Once you are inside, the atmosphere, the welcome, the staff and mein host, Cass - are all delightful, in our experience.
The menu is short - a good thing, as Viv, the chef, knows what she is good at. The food has frankly been outstanding on all our visits and tastes as good as it looks! She is a clever girl! Seek advice from Cass on both the food and the wine. He has an excellent cellar, with wines to satisfy all palates and wallets.
Booking is a MUST and we have never been there when he has been completely full, so I can't comment on how they cope when they are very busy. That said, he is a very experienced and calm restaurateur and I expect all will be well, if a bit slow.
In sum, Cassons is a delightful culinary experience and we look forward, with eager anticipation, to our next visit.
