Set against the picturesque backdrop of Goodwood and the South Downs, the Earl of March is a country pub restaurant in the village of Lavant near Chichester, West Sussex. It was taken over in July 2007 by Giles Thompson the former Executive Head Chef of the Ritz Hotel London. His passion for quality food means The Earl of March serves freshly prepared seasonal food from local produce, a selection of local real ales and a cellar of quality wines. All to be enjoyed in the comfort of the refurbished interior with its sumptuous leather sofas and its open wood fire.

We enjoyed our visit and were welcomed warmly by the staff who went out of their way to re-organise our table to suit 5 guests. The food choice was excellent and quite different to a lot of places I have visited. We enjoyed an excellent three course meal and coffee and were allowed to enjoy our time together without intrusion but also members of staff were always ready to fulfill any requests. Altogether an excellent experience. Four stars as the prices were a little more expensive than other places we have been but maybe warranted for the lovely setting and the unusual menu. Certainly worth it for a celebration.

We were most impressed with this establishment, the food was superb and the staff extremely professional. We noted that they never came over between courses to ask if we were happy, but they did not need to, they were confident enough in the food they were putting out. The owner came over post and introduced himself and had a chat and I thought he was absolutely lovely. Real family feel and made us feel extremely welcome. Will be going again.

Lunch today with family. Only complaint potatoes were rock hard and tiny bowl of vegetables for 4 people so ordered more. These did not arrive but were on the final bill...

After reading great reviews for the Earl of March I booked lunch for 4 which we had yesterday. I can say that the whole experience was worth the trip from Southsea/West Wittering. Everything was perfect! I have no hesitation in recommending this place to anyone and we have no doubt that we will return soon. Thank you for a wonderful lunch with great friends!
