Good Hotel Guide Review

Coast and countryside flavour this restaurant-with-rooms between Chichester harbour and the South Downs national park – look out for shore-harvested sea buckthorn and foraged ceps and chanterelles on the modern menus. Karen and Ramon Farthing set up their modest enterprise in this fishing village more than 20 years ago; today, they run it with Gary and Martina Pearce, who are chef and manager. The simply furnished bedrooms in the 17th-century building are ‘spotlessly clean’, and supplied with good coffee, bottled water, biscuits and ‘fluffy towels’. One spacious room has a window seat taking in quayside views, two are snugger. Still, this is ‘a foodie destination’, and the cooking is the main attraction. In the dining room overlooking the ‘quaint harbour’, the chef’s short but imaginative menus might include sirloin of Welsh Wagyu beef, barbecued onions, braised shin, tartare with chives; poached chalk-stream trout, roasted scallop, peas, morels, asparagus velouté. (Even the amuse-bouche are praised.) Breakfast is continental: ‘good toast and jams’, croissants, pain au chocolat.

Guest comments

'We had a superb time. Our room, though fairly compact, was beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean. Fixtures and fittings of high quality. Everything worked. The restaurant is immaculately appointed, with lovely views, and the quality and presentation of the dishes was superb. Service was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. Only slight niggle about the breakfast was the packet orange juice. A great experience. ' - Ian Malone - April, 2015
'What a find. Guide comments fully endorsed. Restaurant and rooms well furnished. Fresh fruit at breakfast. ' - Michael and Margaret Cross - October, 2014
