Review on The Duke of Cumberland
The Duke of Cumberland is a delightful fifteenth-century pub set in the market town of Midhurst with views right across the Leigh Hill, the highest point in neighbouring Surrey. Perched high on a hillside it's an absolute charmer with a lovely garden - complete with trout ponds - and a trademark rustic interior (think flagstone floors, beams, scrubbed tables and real ales at the bar).
The kitchen makes use of meat from nearby organic farms and fish from the south coast (plus the aforementioned trout) for an accessible menu with a few modern twists. Starters of Irish oysters or pan-seared scallops with rocket, pancetta and balsamic syrup could give way to confit pork belly with apple glaze, creamed cabbage and sauté potatoes, dressed Selsey crab or eight-hour braised lamb shank with mash, green beans and minted jus.
Organic baguettes, salads and burgers are available at lunchtime, and 'Rob the Roast' does his stuff on Sunday (you need to book on Friday to be sure of a place).
