Description: Welcome to our little, English gem by the River Arun! Te key quality food is good ingredients. Tat's why our crab is staight fom te boat, why we choose lamb reared on te lush roling pastures of te nearby Sout Downs and why, when we do have t tavel frter afeld, our beef is sourced from only the finest Scottish herds.

“Littlehampton's finest fare”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

Hi I have been to this restaurant many times over the last 4 years and never had a bad meal. Unfortunately the view of the river Arun is now likely to be obscured for future generations as the sea defenses are currently being raised and the need to scramble for the window seats is a bout to become a thing of the past as a huge wall is currently being built across Pier Road (which historical used to be called Mussel Row (hence the Restaurants name).

Tip of the day ...if you want to sample the quality of food on offer then why not visit between 12-2pm Monday to Thurs when they do a £6.50 lunch option menu. Choices include Cornish Mussels and Chips, Steak pie or Chicken Suet pudding and vegetables of the season in ample size portions. The wine menu is good and locally brewed bottled beer from Arundel and Horsham is included. Heres to many more successful years for this restaurant

“Nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

Visited twice, once with a friend when it first opened and then again with family.
I found the food nice and perfect for what we wanted. The first time I had the fish and chips. Lovely fish and nice chips. I did find it weird that they served salad with it? But that's just me - not a bad point at all
The next time I had the burger and it was lovely. Better than the fish and chips in my eyes.
I had the same guy serve me both times and he was ok.

“Expensive but nice for a treat!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

A lovely setting with view of the river. Nice service with a smile and lovely lamb chops, cooked pink! I had mussels starter as a main and was just right. Go a bit later e.g. 8.30 - 9.00pm and might get a window seat, which we did

“Excellent food, we highly recommend it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

We have been going to this restaurant for years, each time we go to Littlehampton.
The food is always excellent. Great attention to detail is given. The roasts are great.
Such an effort is put in to make it taste just like a very well prepared home cooked dish.
We have never had a bad meal there.
The staff are smart and well presented. The tables look good too!
