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.

Stunning views over the downs...exceptional location. High standard of finish and décor within the dining room... unexpectedly long delay in appetiser coming out of kitchen. (over 35 minute wait for shared baked camembert). Friendly professional waiting staff.

The service, as always was excellent. The meal itself was good. but it should be said that if you want more than a highly decorative snack then your best bet is to order fish and chips or a steak.

Great food and service

We were staying in Lavant for the night and decided to book a meal with you. We were very pleasantly surprised and enjoyed our meal immensely.

Wonderful time!

We had a great family lunch and only wonder why we've not been to the Earl of March before. Will certainly come again for excellent food and good service. One of the party was too shy to tell Giles he is a chef himself but has gone away inspired...... Thank you all
