First class service, as was the meal. We spent a leisurely three hours at The Swallows Return. Somewhere we have enjoyed, on and off over 14 years.

Perched on the edge of the South Downs National Park and close to the sea, The Swallows Return is a country pub with seaside appeal. Offering well-loved British pub cuisine, the beautiful gardens boast al fresco seating, along with the comfortable chairs next to the hearth inside. Originally a barn, The Swallows Return is open and spacious, with airy oak beams and uniquely large and eye-catching windows.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Swallows Return menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies designed by celebrity chef James Martin offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Swallows Return ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

At just a 12-minute drive to Worthing, The Swallow Return is a country and seaside haven.

    We have been regulars at the Swallows Return for many years and one aspect is the friendliness and helpfulness of all the staff. We eat a variety of dishes from the menus over the years but one stand out
    dish was a few years ago when there was a special fillet steak night which in my view has never been equalled bore or since.

    The restaurant is nearly always a peaceful place to eat with no music drowning conversation. As with all public places, others can spoil this tranquillity but we have been lucky on the many occasions we have eaten at The Swallows Return. The menu is varied but there is a tendency some items are 'off' the menu particularly if you arrive later in the evening. The food is presented well and there is not a long delay before the food appears.

    Lovely evening, good food and service. Particularly nice to have Kate (I think) sing happy birthday.
    When we arrived we were shown to a table in the walkway, but easy enough to change when we requested it.
