I have been twice recently and each time the food has been exceptional. Excellent service,the staff are always very friendly and knowledgeable about the food and wine. It's located in a very pretty village near Chichester. I look forward to going back again.

“Fab Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

We went for lunch recently. This was our second visit since it's been taken over & done up. It's now very much a gastropub but still serves a nice selection of beers. The first time we visited was just for drinks a few weeks ago & realised that we probably should have visited before now! We both had the chorizo scotch egg (lush) then my partner had the beef brisket with dripping chips & I had pollack cooked with madras spices and rice all served on wooden boards. A very nice lunch!

Visited the Richmond Arms for the second time in a month , after a friends recommendation.
This is my 2nd favorite place to eat.
Every thing we have eaten here is Excellent quality, taste , presentation i love it.
For any steak eater try the Rib eye with beef dripping chips, so good the best i have had any where.
I cant say any more than this place has to be tried !

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

Lovely atmosphere, great food with an emphasis on the locality of ingredients.
Can thoroughly recommend the runny chorizo scotch egg and the peanut butter and jelly ice cream sandwich for dessert.

“Overpriced, unfriendly, pretentious.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

I am a bit confused about the rave reviews. Maybe we were unlucky but just don't rate this place. Ate here with friends & we were so disappointed. Food just ok, steak over cooked & definately not rare. There's an air of pretentiousness, I'm sure they think they're better than they are & we are privileged to be allowed to eat there! Feedback definately not welcomed even when offered in a polite manner. Won't be returning.
