Square Meal Review of The Earl of March ?

When Ritz hotel executive head chef Giles Thompson took over this character Sussex village pub overlooking the South Downs, the local dining out brigade roared their approval. His expertise is evident, from the attractive refurbishment to an accomplished way with local produce – fashioning prime-quality raw materials into fine, yet simple dishes. There’s seasonal game in many guises, including loin of venison with red cabbage, curly kale & a thyme red-wine jus, & fish also plays a big part on the menu, with starters such as diver scallops and minted pea puree, or oak-smoked salmon with potato blinis, or perhaps a crab & ginger bisque with Parmesan ciabatta. Good wines & service are added bonuses.

  1. The Earl of March has been with the current owners since 2007 and is headed up by Giles Thompson the former Executive Head Chef of the Ritz Hotel London.

We went for dinner on the evening of summer solstice, and with the evening sun burning hot there were many people still sitting out on the terrace overlooking the beautiful view of the Sussex downs. The setting is perfect for drinks with friends, a special occasion or even a private party or Wedding...
