Good Hotel Guide Review
‘Simply lovely.’ In the foothills of the South Downs, this white-painted, rustic-chic inn is firmly rooted in the countryside. Sit on yak-hide banquettes for chef Rob Armstrong’s ‘simple but satisfying meals’ in the ‘lovely restaurant’ – much of the produce, including trout from nearby rivers and pigeon from local estates, is freshly caught or foraged. A typical dish: chicken, leek and shiitake mushroom terrine, prosciutto and tarragon mayonnaise, toasted sourdough. ‘Comfortable bedrooms’ have quirky touches: steamer trunks, wool blankets, sheepskin rugs and the occasional copper bathtub. All rooms face a courtyard with views of the surrounding South Downs, but ask for a room with a private patio, and enjoy the vista from an outdoor hot tub. 10 mins’ drive from Chichester.
