Friends directed me to this gastropub in the small village of West Ashling off the A27 near Chichester, and I was delighted to find two sunny rooms filled with original cooking of high quality, and excellent service. Hot and runny venison scotch egg with pickled fennel was crisply delicious as was the chargrilled white asparagus, crunchy poached egg and Alba truffle mayonnaise, while haloumi also came crisply battered with a herb-filled dipping butter. A decent-sized plate of mussels was made more interesting with the addition of rice and chorizo in the broth, but the slow-cooked, smokey beef brisket was the star of the show, closely followed by some of the best triple-cooked chips ever eaten. A delicious rhubarb fool and some gorgeous ice creams including sea-salt caramel and liquorice completed a superb meal. The menu - pictured - will show you the prices. We will return!
