Dining Out

Chichester offers a range of fantastic dining experiences, many of which are within a fifteen minute walk of Richmond House. Here are a few of our favourites:
There are some great restaurants on St Pancras - just a seven minute walk of Richmond House - this includes two Thais, a very English carvery at the Nags Head pub and, of course, Woodies, which is Chichester's oldest bistro restaurant.

We really like both the
The Thai House and The Lemon Grass Thai restaurants - almost opposite each other, and again situated on St Pancras. Our favourite Indian restaurant is the India Gate, again on St Pancras.

We also highly recommended the Tapas restaurant "
El Castizo". James and Diana produce really authentic Spanish food in a great quirky atmosphere, and very highly rated on Tripadvisor. Make sure you book in advance, especially at weekends, as they get very busy indeed!

If you like French food, there is a
Raymand Blanc brasserie within a seven minute walk of Richmond House that has lovely food at a reasonable price (particularly the fixed price menu). You may like to try the later setting if you're looking for a leisurely meal, as they tend to have fast turnover of diners at the early session. There's also a "Carluccio's" right next door, with a fabulous deli too.

Our current favourite restaurant in Chichester city centre is
Cote on South Street - great menu, fantastic service and a lovely atmosphere. We've recommended it to many of our guests since the restaurant opened in early 2013, and we've had 100% positive feedback from everyone that's taken up our suggestion!

In the centre of town, (still only a ten minute walk from Richmond House), there's more informal dining, including
Trents on South Street. You'll also find a range of Italian "chains", including Ask, Prezzo and Zizzis on East and South Street, so there's loads of choice!

Further afield, there are a couple of really good bistro pubs - The
Royal Oak at Lavant , The Richmond Arms and the Earl of March (all located around the Lavant area) have great reviews on Tripadvisor. The trip would require a taxi, but they're only a few miles away. Similarly, the "Crab and Lobster" in Sidlesham is renowned for its seafood, and has a great setting, being a stone's throw from Pagham Harbour. It's best to book early - especially for a weekend, as all of these restaurants get very busy.
