Friendly staff, even if overstretched. Pretty good service. Great menu. Lovely home cooked food. Modest interior to restaurant. Good value for money.

Stopped here whilst on a walk following the Downs Link path. The day was lovely so sat in the garden and ordered a Panini. Food was really prompt and good quality.

My mum and I called in this restaurant for the first and last time during a trip from Kent to Arundel. On arrival it was more like entering a cake sale at the Woman's Institute and we were shown to a table which was dirty and tatty. We were given the specials board which was basically all fish dishes and... More

Good selection on the menu and specials board, but maybe this is where the problem lay. Refine the menu and focus on the quality not quantity. Lovely young waiter, who left us to chat and didn't rush or hover. The food was poor, I had chicken and leek pie, the filling may have been very nice, but such thick pastry... More

Not a local girl serving us but she took great care at writing everything down and cross checking our orders; so everything was correct ;and as the meal went on she kept popping back to ask if everything was OK. The menu is a good starting place because the main courses are available in two sizes. Particularly older folk do... More

Okay, so this place doesn't look much from outside and it's pretty plain inside, but don't be put off by that. The food is all home-cooked and is delicious with generous portions. There are always lovely specials on the board and the desserts are great with lots of choice. Service can be a little variable depending on how many staff... More

I came here with my family the other day and i have to say the orchard will never disappoint! I've been coming here since they opened! They are still the same owners and you can see how well they're doing! They clearly look after their staff as they always seem really happy and welcoming! Agreed! They get very busy, but... More

We have passed this restaurant many times and decided to call in for a late lunch. We should have realised by the empty car park that it may have given a hint. We slowly pushed the door and walked into an empty unwelcoming space. Were we welcomed by the patron? No!.. The only staff member in the restaurant continued to... More

We visited for the first time today, we live close by and have passed this place for a number of years. First of all they were busy but the staff appeared rather untrained. The girl who welcomed us almost looked supprised when we asked for a table. Having just walked in, it was not an unreasonable request. Next the menu... More
