Stopped for lunch - without a reservation - but were fortunate to be offered a table in the bar, where we enjoyed an excellent meal. The daily specials board had only a few items, but they did seem to be genuinely dishes of the day using the freshest ingredients. We enjoyed a main course of grey mullet, served with brown... More

We came here as we were staying nearby and had had a long journey. The food in the bar was excellent, if a little pricey, but very good value for the money.

I took my husband, daughter and friend for a 'taster menu' meal at the Arundell Arms. I was uncertain about what to expect and was delighted by the evening. The atmosphere at the hotel is relaxed and friendly, the staff are most helpful and the food - the food was beyond description - is was simply wonderful! Every course was... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel. From the outside it looks like a very nice pub so we were pleasantly surprised to find that their restaurant is truly fine dining. Food and service were excellent.

On our birthday stay, as part of the deal, we had the restaurants taster menu. 5 courses - with wine for each course, but an extra price, which we didn't go for - and it was tasty, slowly served so we could enjoy the experience. The menu changes each day, and our menu was a delight.

Staying nearby in a Landmark Trust property we decided to walk to the Arundel Arms for lunch. Despite a large group with a dog we where made very welcome in the bar where we enjoyed a great meal with some "strange menu" requests from one of my pals (chips and tomatoes and she is not even pregnant!) where graciously and...

We popped in by chance to grab a bite to eat, and were very glad to have done so. The food was perfectly cooked and well presented. The staff were every so friendly too. To top the end of the meal off, was my dessert - the coconut brûlée. Wowsers, very delicious.

We were staying in the Arundell and had a special offer for this restaurant which we were please that we took as otherwise we feel it would have been very expensive for a country restaurant. However, the food was excellent, well prepared and attractively served. We chose the 'taster' menu which consisted of 5 different courses. The bread was warm... More

I am only staying here for one night because i was down to go a party near by, but i wish i was staying for longer. Reception was friendly and welcoming. A fitting contrast with the reception in a chain hotel, the lady escorted me to my room. The room is pretty, and airy and well equipped The bar was... More
