We have met friends here for lunch a few times over the past couple of years & each time we have had the best pizzas. I can honestly say the pizzas are the best I have ever had. Very good service.

My husband doesn’t generally eat pizza, but I have raved about Safari Pizza, so he wanted to try and I think he is now a convert. Really delicious pizza, fast and attentive service. Lovely ambience in the restaurant.

About the restaurant
Located in the heart of the Goodwood Estate and surrounded by the South Downs National Park, The Star & Garter in East Dean offers a delicious selection of freshly cooked, local and seasonal food in a charming dining space with red brick and oak beams. Just a mile down the hill from Goodwood Race Course we are 12 minutes drive from Chichester. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner we try to source our ingredients as locally and as seasonally as possible. Whether you are at a Goodwood Event or walking, cycling or just out for a drive and fancy a decent meal at reasonable prices, we like to think we are one of the best around. We have a great courtyard and garden space which can seat up to 100 people. Freshly ground coffee is available all day. With a mixture of local people and tourists there's always a warm welcome here.

About the restaurant
The Cat Inn is a 16th century free house set in the picturesque village of West Hoathly, a hilltop village set in the heart of the Sussex countryside. It is in within easy distance from the towns of East Grinstead and Haywards Heath and only 25 minutes from Gatwick Airport.

The Pub with its oak beams and two inglenook fireplaces proffers a warm and cosy atmosphere in the winter, whilst our terrace is perfect to enjoy a drink and food in the summer months. Being a free house we pride ourselves in the quality of our real ale, and concentrate on local breweries, such as Harvey's of Lewes and other micro breweries. Our food is cooked to order, using fresh, seasonal and where possible locally sourced ingredients. Our menus change on a regular basis and we also offer a small selection of seasonal specials on a daily basis.

We welcome children over the age of 7. Dogs are welcome in the "pub" area of the Cat, they are not permitted in the dining room

About the restaurant
Kinsbrook is an experience-led vineyard focused on enabling people to drink English wine where it was grown and matured. In addition to offering vineyard tours and tasting, our new 'Kinsbrook Farmhouse' hosts a restaurant, which showcases the very best of Sussex produce through small plates.

RESTAURANT
We are championing our sustainable ethos through Kinsbrook Farmhouse and our 'farm to table' eatery, which aims to eventually grow as much of its own fresh produce on-site. We offer small plates designed for sharing in a tapas style, made of fresh, local produce as well as gourmet breakfasts. Our well-curated wine list, specialty coffees & nibbles are available all-day, seven days a week.

TOURS & TASTINGS
We absolutely love to share our passion for vines and wines and tours are the best way to do so!
