Good Hotel Guide Review
The scene gets to the rustic heart of village life: in Sarah and Charles Ullmann’s ‘popular, stylish’ early-19th-century inn, find oak beams, flint walls, leather armchairs, fresh flowers and, on cold days, a blazing fire. The atmosphere is ‘warm and cosy’, the staff are ‘attentive’. Village residents haunt the place to drink the locally brewed ales, walkers following the old Chichester-to-Midhurst railway line drop by. Up the stairs and in nearby cottages, smart bedrooms are ‘comfortable’, and ‘well equipped’ with books and games; two-bedroom cottages, complete with chocolates, milk and biscuits, are perfect for a family. Eat super-local in the adjacent ‘busy’ restaurant: Fran Joyce, the new chef, uses fish from the coast 20 minutes away (‘please ask what’s come in’), and game from local herdsmen. Try the bouillabaisse of fresh fish fillets on a mussel, squid and tomato base. On fine days make the most of seating on the terrace and in the garden. As the sun rises over the moors, savour a full Sussex breakfast – fuel for exploring the South Downs national park. More reports, please.
