I completely disagree with the reviewer on 3rd September as our experience was fantastic. The kitchen was closed as we arrived after 3pm. However we were offered a bread and cheese platter , kindly prepared for us by the owner. We will return 👌

Great location. Visit helped by a lovely warm sunny day to eat outside with views of Goodwood and the west Sussex countryside. Really good service and lovely food. Unhurried service and unusual food pairings. Portions not too big either, but quite sufficient. Thoroughly recommended.

Hi, I ate there and reviewed the place, but I did NOT serve you nor have I anything to say about what you got. I have nothing to do with the place. I just visited.
