SquareMeal Review of Arundel House Restaurant and Rooms

Situated a short distance from the River Arun & the town’s 11th-century castle, this boutique hotel-cum-restaurant exudes stylish simplicity. Chef Luke Hackman delivers modern British dishes as layered as the chalk Downs – witness starters of chilled duck confit with Puy lentils & a potato ballottine or ham hock & leek soufflé. A main-course confit belly of Sussex pork could be robustly partnered by a butternut squash rösti, while more delicate layering continues in desserts such as rhubarb cheesecake with a blood orange granité or caramelised banana & rum bavarois with honeycomb crunch. Three local cheeses include the prize-winning Tunworth from Hampshire, & wines are sourced from Four Walls – one of the best independent merchants in the area. Personable service is overseen by co-owner Billy Lewis-Bowker.

Formerly overshadowed (in my opinion) by a worthy competitor at the top of Arundel High St, I dined here for the first time in a long time for lunch with girlfriends and I was pleasantly surprised. If you're looking for a good value(fabulous 2 and 3 course deals for lunch), good quality (locally sourced produce) and good service (Billy's attention to customers is faultless) you have come to the right place. The lunch set menu is far from boring and if you don't fancy any of the dishes on that you can always go for the 'chef's special' menu which is available daily and comes with a glass of wine all for less than £20… Highly recommended.
