Royal Oak East Lavant

Pook Lane, East Lavant, Chichester (Nr.), West Sussex, PO18 0AX
This village inn, slightly off the beaten track, and popular with walkers and locals alike, also houses a good pub-style restaurant - which in many respects has become the main event.
Although the décor has been smartened up, the flagstone floors, oak beams (and reputedly a ghost) remain.The food offered is traditional with modern twists - so expect the likes of 'Crispy Whitebait with Lemon and Caper Mayonnaise'; 'Caesar Salad with Fresh Anchovy Dressing' and 'Oriental Crispy Duck with Watercress and Bean Shoot Salad, Honey and Ginger' among the starters. Perhaps 'Fish & Chips - fillet of haddock and minted pea purée'; 'Confit of Duck Leg, Savoy Cabbage and a Red Wine and Puy Lentil Jus'; Slow Braised Shoulder of Lamb with Celeriac & Potato Mash & Swiss Chard' and 'Scottish Fillet Steak & Chips with Roasted Tomato and Field Mushrooms' among the mains. If you still have room, you might be tempted by 'Crème Brulée with a Tuile Biscuit' or Sticky Toffee and Apple Pudding with Cinnamon Ice Cream'. The more savoury-toothed can enjoy a plate of English cheeses.
