Our 10 most recent restaurant reviews…

The Pass - Horsham

There aren’t many restaurants where you can paint your own dessert or watch a chef make a flower from cheese. But soon after taking a seat at The Pass, the chef’s table experience at South Lodge Hotel, one comes to expect the unexpected.

Pascere - Brighton

Pascere displays touches of brilliance but according to Laura Paton the restaurant hasn’t quite achieved its full potential.

The Sir Roger Tichborne - Loxwood

Our new restaurant reviewer Laura Paton visits the Sir Roger Tichborne, a community pub set in great walking country in Loxwood.

Murmur - Brighton

Michael Bremner’s casual family dining offering is a boon to Brighton’s busy seafront.

Cowdray Farm Shop Café - Cowdray Park

Cowdray Farm Shop Café has a fresh, healthy menu that is the perfect antidote to festive overindulgence.

The Bell - Ticehurst

The Bell in Ticehurst on the Kent/East Sussex border is a charming 16th century inn with rooms – and a lively programme of events.

Noah’s Ark Inn - Lurgashall

The Noah’s Ark Inn has been delighting Lurgashall’s residents and visitors since the 16th century. Jenny Mark-Bell finds it merits its good reputation.

Bill’s - Lewes

It has grown from its Lewes home to become a feature of more than 75 high streets across the country. Duncan Hall eats in the original Bill’s and meets its founder.

etch - Hove

Hove isn’t the most obvious place for a television star to open his first restaurant. It would seem natural to trade on a Masterchef: The Professionals winner’s name in the tourist hotspots of Brighton, but Steven Edwards always had Church Road in his sights.

Whites - Hastings

Judging by the number of reservation-less diners staff had to turn away on a Thursday night before the summer holidays, Hastings has taken Whites to its heart.
