The Pass

Granted, South Lodge is just down the road, but it’s well worthy of a mention. And there aren’t many restaurants where you can paint your own dessert or watch a chef make a flower from cheese! Find out what else is on offer here.

South Lodge Hotel RH13 6PS


Part of a small chain of Thai restaurants in the Sussex and Hampshire, Lemongrass serve freshly prepared food from local and international suppliers. Try the classic Thai green chicken curry, or perhaps the Lemongrass roasted duck curry. They also offer a takeaway service.

La Piazzetta

Another Italian spot well worthy of a visit is family-run La Piazzetta, located in Bishopric. Head chef and Sicilian native Daniele Patane, along with his team, combine fresh Italian ingredients with local produce to create dishes including - but not limited to - linguine vongole, penne verdi and the alla pollo risotto.
