Located just yards from Home Farm at Goodwood, Farmer, Butcher, Chef is dedicated to showcasing the flavour, quality and provenance of their meat and serving dishes where the customers will have travelled farther than the ingredients. One of the only self-sustaining organic farms in Europe, Goodwood has been farmed by the family for over 300 years.

The frequently changing menu champions seasonal English fare, making the most of Home Farm produce, accompanied by selected ingredients from local suppliers. Designed with the on-site butcher, dishes vary according to what cuts are available. The Butcher’s Boards are an imaginative way to enjoy beef, pork and lamb, highlighting different cuts served in an array of carefully-designed dishes.

    Ambience good. Staff friendly and helpful. Food tasty but suggest a larger choice for starter and main course under the set menu. The name of the restaurant suggests the availability of choice cuts of beef or lamb even if small to keep within price range such as provided by Cote Brasserie in town.
    The website menu layout is confusing. Why not have all choices on one list instead of having to scroll down for each course?

    Great setting in the wonderful West Sussex country with delightful barn dining-room, full of fascinating curios.
    Outstanding food, served by friendly, helpful staff. A good choice including fish and vegetarian option although the "Farm, Butcher" ethos really dictates you should try one of the meat dishes. Will definitely be returning with friends and family.

    Good features: Timed arrival and plenty of staff to look after each new arrival. Really good aand interesting menu. Venue was really very welcoming and interesting (would like info sheet giving history). The starter, we both chose the same, was good, interesting, well prepared with a variety of complimenting flavours (Ham Hock).
    I had lamb and would have to be challenged by something different on the menu not to have it again. My wife had the plaice and kept telling me of the different flavours she was experiencing. Finally, excellent coffee.
    Suggestion: proper tables outside for dining al fresco whentheweather is good.

    I can honestly say that is was the best Sunday roast I have ever had and the soufflé was to die for. Staff were fantastic and setting was amazing.

    Unfortunately overall my wife and I were disappointed. The baked Alaska was very good. The chips were as good as I have eaten. The service was fine. I found my particular seat uncomfortable and real quite small ( I am 90kgs). We both had the pork dish as a main. It was a miserable portion and was not cook for long enough and was tough. I accept pork is served with fat but in this instance it was excessive. The hippy cabbage was very watery. I hope this feedback is helpful. I would recommend, but with the caveat as I have described.

    over elaborate Gin and Tonic for 80 year old (when sent back to change - the same glass came back with bits of pepper and smeary glass and obviously the same glass so looked very grubby and unappetising - would be better to ask if like ice and slice as well as type of gin etc! older generation don't really like loads of ice, cucumber balls and pepper!. would be nice to have a minuscule choc with coffees etc. as i don't generally have a pudding and something sweet at the end of delicious meal is good.

    Disappointing! We were very much looking forward to going to this restaurant but l am afraid we were very disappointed with our meal. We were a party of 4 and the Cauliflower Mousse starter was more of a white sauce consistency & we certainly could not eat it with the forks provided & had to ask for a spoon to eat it with & although the taste was delicious we didn't think the crab in the bun on the side complemented it at all. All the main courses were rather dry with very little gravy & one of the pigeon breasts was gray in colour & overcooked & the Roast beef was pink in the centre but l am afraid a bit tough. Also other than the Roast lunches on offer none of the other main courses we ordered came with vegetables & we only found this out when l specifically asked the waitress what they came with - the deep fried potatoes chips are infact very thick wedges & in my opinion rather like deep fried roast potatoes. Such a pity as the room & ambience is lovely.
