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.

Great Food, Service and Views. Perfect for a spot of lunch outside.

We eat fairly frequently at the EOM, but this last visit wasn't quite up there, where I would normally rate it. The smoked guinea fowl starter was a little bland - not as good as the last time I had it a month ago. My main course of cod was very well cooked and served, but a very strong chunk of grilled onion rather killed the delicacy of the fish. Fruit crumble dessert was excellent. Despite my minor criticisms, it was a very good meal. I marked the service down only because we weren't asked what drinks we wanted to order with our meal and weren't offered a wine list automatically - as one would expect.

We booked early as a pre-theatre dinner. I've eaten moules et frites a lot of times and these were amongst the best ever but I think it is the first time I haven't been given a finger bowl or wet wipe or similar to clean up afterwards. I have deducted a star for that and a second star as the second glass of wine ordered during the meal didn't turn up until we had finished despite the waiter being under no obvious time pressure. The crepes were excellent too, the Tuesday special has a lot going for it, just take your own wet wipes!

I had booked a table for two to celebrate my husband's birthday. The quality of the locally sourced food, the presentation of it, the standard of service and the general ambiance were excellent. We had a wonderful meal- thank you.

We had a table for 9 - 6 of our group had been doing the 10k Goodwood Just Walk Charity Challenge. Whilst we had booked the table for 1pm, our walkers didn't arrive until almost 2pm. The delay in us sitting down to eat wasn't a problem to anyone. Most of us had the fish and chips which were absolutely delicious. In fact, all the food was good. We will definitely be back.
