The Crabtree – West Sussex

Another great recommendation (19th June 2012) in the Horsham sort-of-area of West Sussex. The Crabtree is a lovely pub and restaurant serving very fresh locally sourced food. I recently tried their six course “Taste of Sussex” menu which had some great highlights like a sorbet served in a glass of local sparkling wine and a great pork based main course (which was really large considering it was a 6 course menu) with the brilliantly named ‘Wobblegate Apple Jelly’. The only item that I felt could have been improved was the cheese course which was only two very similar hard cheeses. The entire thing was very well priced at £35 – and they have many other great items on their menu. As it’s so close to the excellent South Lodge hotel I’d definitely recommend it if you fancied a change from the great hotel restaurants.
