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.

Had THE most amazing meal! The roast Pheasant breast starter with winter berries was sublime and the steak that I ordered for my main course was cooked to perfection! Really looked after by the staff - much appreciated as I was traveling and dining by myself. Lovely village pub with a great kitchen and bar!! 10/10!!!

The food is always delicious, particularly the mussels and the parmesan fries - so if you want to treat yourself to a location with great food and atmosphere the E of M is for you.

A lot to like....

'gastro pubs' are numerous but few live up to their name - this one does in terms of the scope of the menu, the quality of food and the level service

Maybe the food could be simplified a bit. Service very friendly and very efficient. A very pleasant lunch experience.
