Delicious food, excellent service with a particular mention to the restaurant desk. We will definitely be going again. We went for my husband's birthday and he loved it - a particularly good menu for the meat-loving male, but the attention to detail and vegetables were all superb and appealed to us both.

Excellent food, very nice service from the staff who work well as a team. Mushroom mousse was light and full of flavour and the apple soufflé should not be missed. Good atmosphere aided by good acoustics meant that you could have a conversation without having to shout.

A lovely alternative to the Kennels. As expected, the food was amazing but my husband thought that £12 for a bloody mary was excessive.

Absolutely fantastic food, great service and fabulous setting. So impressed with this restaurant can't wait to go back to try some more dishes!

Room is bright but the lighting is not of the standard expected of a venue of your Calibre - and doesn't create a comfortable relaxed atmosphere. Room a bit bare and presumably take off of Chiltern Firehouse. Metal table tops don't work. Already has unsightly rings on. Glasses feel like cheap plastic tooth mugs.
Staff pleasant and friendly. Despite having booked nearly a month in advance we were offered the worst table in the house by the entrance next to the till despite other better tables being available. Menu interesting but execution does not match the ambition. My wife had the duck egg starter which turned out to be like bacon and eggs - the cast iron dish in which it was served was red hot and the egg was cooked to a rubbery consistency and inedible. The bacon also totally dry. The jowl terrine was better but not that interesting.
I had the Dover sole which was reasonably priced but smaller than any I have ever seen. I asked for boiled potatoes rather than the roasted and was assured this would not be a problem. However I was served the roared variety! My wife's beef was well cooked (rare) but too small for a main course. Looked more like a starter. The wine Cavalier was excellent value - we served this at my daughters wedding which we held at Goodwood House in October and was pleasing to see the price was consistent. The long table with fruit filled fire buckets is a poor use of valuable space. Why not give diners better tables to sit at and give them more space? Overall value for money was ok. We paid almost as much at pizza express last week.

Four of us had a lovely relaxed Sunday lunch. Starters were good and when it got round to the main event we were so pleased it was a "proper" Sunday lunch and not messed about with, plenty of tender meat, roast potatoes, yorkshire pud, lovely selection of seasonal veg and delicious gravy. All various sauces mint, apple, horseradish were brought to the table, and the plates were hot. Only one of us had a pudding which was the apple crumble souffle, which we were told would take 20 minutes, we had no problem with that and it arrived on time, and it was delicious, we finished with tea and coffee which were served in very pretty orange and white enamel mugs, although for me I would have preferred china. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and comfortable, so much detail to take in, a feast for the eyes.. Service was very good too. My criticisms are that the glasses we were served our white wine in were tumblers, albeit lovely modern thin glass etc they are not wine glasses, made you feel that you were drinking water, I asked for a stemmed glass which was brought immediately with no fuss. Also we found the room rather hot, maybe because the weather had changed and it was very mild, but the central fire was on and there are a lot of overhead lights which may have added to the temperature. Not a lot of menu choice if you are not a big meat eater, then I suppose given the name of the restaurant, to be expected. Will certainly be back and will recommend to friends.

Lovely Sunday roast fairly priced for the quality

Great service and amazing Sunday Roast! We were already planning our return before we left!!
((((* 9 January 2017 by Mike Broughton from Angmering
Our lunch was cooked to perfection, beef rare and vegetables slightly crunchy. The baked alaska that we shared was lovely, and the chef had piped Happy Birthday on the serving platter for my wife, a really nice thought.
We liked the surroundings, it's good to dine somewhere that's different to the rest and we appreciated the space between tables that allowed us ample privacy to chat,
Only one criticism: the wine prices are too high. £38 for a bottle of Rioja, or £10 for a glass, is really taking the Mick! This would stop us returning too often which is a shame as we loved every other aspect.

Absolutely incredible, by far the best meal we've had in a long time, everything so full of flavour and service was brilliant well looked after and attentive - will recommend to everyone!
