"VERY GOOD"

This homely British all-dayer is named after a West Sussex farm and vineyard owned by the Gladwin brothers (behind Notting Hill’s The Shed and Rabbit in Chelsea), which tells you everything you need to know about Nutbourne. Known for their rural proclivities, the Gladwins have once again embraced the theme, conjuring an atmosphere and look akin to being in a (very large) farmhouse kitchen: chunky wood surfaces and potted plants abound, while the low-lit room glows like a hearth in the evenings. Casually attired, charming staff drag a large specials blackboard from table to table, filled with market-price rib-eye cuts from Sussex, while the all-day menu takes inspiration from Europe for predominantly British ingredients. Ever-changing choices are strictly seasonal but on our visit, BBQ grill selections included soft slices of fallow deer placed on a crispy pastry bed with a mulled wine gel. Elsewhere, a bowl of ‘pasta’ was in fact long, thin strands of raw potato in a warming, nutty carbonara sauce: it’s assured, pretty and satisfying stuff. An emphasis on vegetables and salads make this a great choice for veggies, while English wine fans will be happy with the strong showing from Nutbourne’s vineyard. The only problem is its location, being nowhere near any major stations: lucky locals.

A lot of us on social media these days find restaurants to eat at based on Instagram posts from restaurants, and I must confess I am one of those people and I've been meaning to come here ever since I found out it's by the same guys that do Rabbit and The Shed, this is their third, and as trilogies go it's an excellent addition to the franchise. I've eaten at the Rabbit pop up at the Prince and had high hopes for Nutbourne. Arriving with my friend a little early for a 7pm table in the middle of January we were very surprised to see a completely empty restaurant, a product of Dry January perhaps? Undeterred we chose our table and wine. The menu is everything you'd expect, the current trend of small sharing plates continues, which I love, because it means I get to try everything! The space itself is large and welcoming, with huge windows which in the summer will make this place light up. It's very obvious that the focus of these restaurants is farm produce, there's wooden vegetables on the walls, and plants hanging from the ceiling and as for the food... Well, it's everything you expect, fresh produce, well prepared, very well cooked. Stand out dishes for me this time round was Cod cheeks, the cuttlefish and the venison cigars, oh the venison cigars... I could have eaten two or three plates of those. I still need to try the Rabbit restaurant, and The Shed, but if it's anything like here, I'm on to a winner.
