Recently ordered the takeaway for delivery. Order arrived missing items and for the £45 I paid did not feel like I got value for money portion size or quality at all. In general very under par meal

Having read the 1 revue of this place I arranged for four of us to try it last night,what an experience.The car park was pitch black and full of potholes with 1 car in it,that should have been a clue.We had a drink in the pub while we waited for our friends,2 customers.What a dreary place.When our friends arrived we went into the restaurant,it was empty,another clue.We were greeted by a Calor gas heater in the aisle which provided a cheery glow.After perusing the menu we found the prices were far higher than on their web.when we queried, this apparently is their take away pricelist.The B menu is £22.50 not £16 each,Decidedly average food one course looked like a plate of lumpy grey sick but it did come with 4 lettuce leaves so that was all right.A glass of Coke cost £2.45 and the final bill for 4 was £108.Never again.

Been eating here for several years. The front of the building is a pub (Castle Inn) and the rear is a chinese restaurant. Both are owned by the same family who have been running the business for years. Its next to the Hickstead show ground and can get bery busy when an event is being held.

The fish options and specials are usually very good as the owner goes personally to market in Hove to buy fresh fish. If its not on the menu ask as they can often cook it for you, although the menu contains nearly all the options you would expect.

In the bar you can order from a limited bar meal menu, which includes various bar favourites.

They are probably the only restaurant that will deliver food throughout the Twineham and Wineham area.

Its well worth a try.
