The Anderida Restaurant – February 2013

Ashdown Park Hotel and Country Club, 01342 824988,

“The restaurant, under the guardianship of Head Chef Andrew Wilson, holds two AA rosettes and offers classic contemporary dishes as well as an eight-course tasting menu.”

The Giggling Squid – May 2013

Church Road, Hove (01273 771991); Market Street, Brighton (01273 737373); High Street, Crawley (01293 530455),

“At the rate these restaurants are popping up all over the South East you’ll most likely run into one sooner or later. If you don’t, it’s well worth seeking out.”

The White Horse – June 2013

1 High Street, Chilgrove, Chichester, PO18 9HX, 01243 519444,

“After this parade of gluttony, during which we chatted to our next door neighbours – a local chef and his companion, surely a good sign – we retired to the convivial bar. And from there it was just a few steps to bed in one of the self-contained en-suite cottages… Sweet dreams are made of this.”

12 Bishopric, Horsham, RH12 1QR, 01403 252286,

“If you’re after something more than pub grub (be it a bite to eat or a full three-course-meal), and want real home-cooked tasting food, served by the most charming of staff, who really can’t do enough for you, then this is undoubtedly the place to come.”

Yum Yum Ninja – October 2013
