This former farmhouse has been transformed into a stylish hotel with exposed beams, views of the Sussex countryside & a sheltered courtyard for outdoor dining during the summer months. Proximity to the Chichester Yacht Club means that Crouchers is popular with the sailing fraternity too. Fish is naturally a strong suit on the menu: local Selsey crab might partner halibut & a saffron risotto, while scallops could be given a caper & white raisin dressing or teamed with belly pork & butternut squash purée. Alternatively, there’s plenty for meat fans, including quail with savoy cabbage & pancetta, navarin of lamb & steak. To finish, try black cherry bavarois or hot chocolate fondant with passionfruit foam; otherwise, explore the cheeses. An eclectic global wine list is tilted towards the owners’ native South Africa. Service aims to please.
