After finding out that most pubs don't serve lunch after 2.30 we were relieved to find the White Swan Inn. Once inside we were impressed with the friendly staff and welcoming decor.
We had been expecting a selection of bar snacks but instead there was a 3 course menu with something for everyone. The food was great and we are planning a return in the near future.

Tuesday evening meal of fish and chips. My wife and I arrived at 7pm and the venue was very quiet. Food was fresh, batter was very light and not at all greasy, absolutely beautiful. I enjoyed the perfectly cooked chips, ( my wife thought they were oven cooked), I'm wasn't so sure but a good reasonably priced evening dinner.
My wife and I have a favourite drink of cola with a dash of blackcurrant, it was perfectly mixed.
When next in the area we would return.

The service was very good with very helpful staff eager to make the experience a great one. The food was very well cooked and presented and the profiteroles just rounded off a perfect dining experience.

A relative and partner were staying in arundel so we met up for a meal. We wanted somewhere not to formal or expensive and having passed the The White Swan several times we thought we would give it a try.

The White Hart is divided almost in two, one half the traditional pub which had quite a few guests enjoying a drink and the restaurant. The restaurant was cozy and comfortable and felt welcoming. I did not have a starter, the others shared some whitebait which they enjoyed.

My main course was fish and chips, the fish was well cooked and covered in a lovely light batter. The peas, a cross between mushy and ordinary peas was nothing special and the chips were fine. The others had the sea bream, steak and ale pie and the plaice and all were happy with the food.

We all enjoyed the meal, I have given 3 stars as I only had one course and it was good but on it's own not enough to warrant more stars. However do not see that as suggesting it is not a good place to visit, because it is.

It was good value and definately worth a visit.

We were looking for a carvery on our stay in Arundel and when I rang up to book it the time we wanted to go the carvery had finished but they said they were still serving roast dinner which we had the food was so lovely I had roast turkey and my husband had the 3 meats and I have to say it was so tasty and well worth every penny £11.95, the staff were really friendly and pleasant they couldn't do enough for us, We both had a pudding and a few drinks and the meal came to under £60 so not only good tasty food but great value for money!!!!!!
