Description: Not many restaurants have a loyalty scheme, which just goes to show how very loyal Rowley's long-time regulars happen to be. The room is traditionally British, but also informal and relaxed. The menu changes monthly, and always features Rowley's tremendously good char-grilled entrecote steak or breast of Sussex chicken with herb and butter sauce and endless chips. The trad Caeser salad is also terrific. Short, intelligent wine list and the sun-dried tomato chutney served with the cheese is just right. Great for business lunches, or pre- or post-theatre.

Superb restaurant with great fish and chips (but pricey) and endless refills of chips.
Always go here with business clients and never disappointed. Never needed to book the staff are always accommodating.

I have been going here off and on for years. The food and ambience are both perfectly nice. On a recent family visit we used a pre-paid groupon voucher (sponsored by Rowleys) which gave a discount on the Chateaubriand part of the meal. That was fine - until the bill came. As usual the final item was a ‘12.5% optional gratuity‘. However at a quick glance it was obvious that it was far more. In fact it was over 27%. They had charged 12.5% on 100% of the original a la carte price, not even the discounted level which we had already pre-paid. But this was not mentioned when we arrived or on the bill, the gratuity was represented, in print, as 12.5%. My query was met with a shrug and “So? I don’t get any of it”. That surly response resulted in me refusing to pay any gratuity at all. Go by all means, it’s a decent place, but check your bill carefully.

We have been coming here for ages but not so much now we live abroad. On this occasion we had just got off a train and needed a quick warming lunch near our hotel. Rowley's is just down the street so perfectly situated. Nothing has changed: we greatly enjoyed the lobster & salmon fishcake and deep fried whitebait, followed by chargrilled fillet steak on its own burner with french beans, cauliflower cheese and 'unlimited' chips. Now we were warm at last! Rowleys has it just right - so good to know somewhere unchanged in an otherwise constantly changing world. Much recommended.

We were four, meeting up on a Sunday evening for an annual pre-Christmas meal.
Loved the whitebait.
We had entrecote, cod, chicken, Christmas chicken etc..
Waitress reacted really well to knocking a wine glass over and onto me. She and colleague immediately brought things to wipe it up, water to dab my clothes and gave me the details to bill them for any necessary cleaning - not necessary in the end.
e will go again especially as we regularly stay locally.

First time visit after a theatre visit with family and great atmosphere and friendly staff. Great selection of food and wine. Will comeback as great position for shopping or theatre. Worth a try.
