Their menu is extensive and their staff were knowledgeable about the spice levels of their dishes. Lager was fine.

We ate here last night for my mother's 75th birthday. As she's Coeliac where she eats and how she's catered for are very important. As regular customers my parents know that she is always looked after here. It's an unusual venue, being underground in what I assume were the cellars for the hotel above.

One thing is for sure you will always get good service! But the food is normally very good buy it can vary this may be due to which chef they have working during your visit. Summing up over all very good but over priced

Just eaten here one night whilst walking S Downs way. Brilliant food. Courteous and helpful staff. And did I mention how good the food is? Will try and think of a reason to come back to Petworth.
