Review on The Mulberry

Since becoming owned by radio and TV celeb Chris Evans, this former boozer by the A283 (near Chiddingfold) has been re-named The Mulberry and a contemporary makeover to bring it right up to date. Some of its eighteenth-century beams and other original features have been retained, and they blend seamlessly with leather sofas and polished wood floors. A log fire often blazes in the bar and there's an attractive covered terrace for al fresco meals.

The Mulberry still sees itself as a modern-day country pub with accommodation: it has real ales on tap and serves traditional roasts for Sunday lunch, but elsewhere the emphasis is on more contemporary ideas. Seasonal menus may kick off with Scallops served on a pumpkin and pine nut puree with pancetta and black truffle oil.

Brasserie dishes dominate the rest of the menu, from grilled poussin with foie gras stuffing, served with chateau potatoes, savoy cabbage and red wine jus to apricot tarte tatin served with vanilla ice cream. In between, expect anything from grilled sea bass served on spinach and new potatoes with aged balsamic and tomato salsa to beer-battered cod with hand cut chips, tartare sauce, mushy peas and salad. The wine list is funky and fashionable.

You are welcome to take your very well-behaved four legged friend to The Mulberry but please mention this when booking to ensure that they can accommodate you. Dogs are only allowed in certain parts of the pub and must always be on a lead.

    lovely lunch

    Found this by accident after going to Petworth. Had a lovely late lunch served by charming young waiter. Going back with family for slap up celebration dinner in near future.
