Good Hotel Guide Review
Lee and Katie Williams run their restaurant-with-rooms in a Grade II listed Regency building close to the antique shops and historic sites in a bustling, riverside market town. The atmosphere is relaxed – ‘like being at a dinner party with friends,’ say the owners – and service is ‘first class’, a Guide reader reports. Served under a carved and gilded Renaissance Florentine ceiling (‘worth a visit in its own right’), the chef/patron’s menus are short, seasonal and accessible, without fuss, foam or swooshes. Try roast venison, beetroot, sauté potatoes, perhaps, or seared scallops, pork belly, spicy spring greens. There’s an ‘excellent and reasonably priced’ wine list, too. Up ‘steep stairs’ (help with luggage is offered), bedrooms vary in size and style. A suite with a four-poster bed, an original fireplace and a moulded ceiling has a balcony overlooking Arundel Castle; a cheaper four-poster double shares the view. Gazing over the rooftops of the town, a top-floor suite of two bedrooms and a shared shower room suits a family. On a fine day, stroll to the banks of the River Arun, then into Sussex countryside. More reports, please.
