The unseasonably warm weather in Sussex this week has got us dreaming of Summer at The Lamb!
We are so lucky to be nestled in a county with so many fantastic attractions and events throughout the Summer. While often we are too busy working to get to many of them, we love hearing stories from our customers who stay with us at The Lamb to head out and explore as many events in Sussex as you can.
We’ve been taking a look at whats coming up this year and offer our pick of the best here:
The Floral Fringe Fair – 1st-2nd June, Amberley Museum
“An eclectic, quirky, foodie, arty, plantaholics wildlife event with classic cars, a vintage and a Steampunk twist!”
The Festival of Chichester – 15th June-14th July
“Over two hundred events will be staged in and around the city, making the Festival of Chichester one of the largest and most vibrant arts festivals in the south”
The Goodwood Festival of Speed – 4th-7th July
“The world’s greatest celebration of motorsport and car culture! Held in the beautiful parkland surrounding Goodwood House, the Festival of Speed is motorsport’s ultimate summer garden party, an intoxicating celebration of the world’s most glamorous sport”
Lordington Lavender Open Week – 8th-14th July
“Every summer the lavender field is full of bumble bees and butterflies and when the sun shines you can imagine being in Provence!”
Wiston Steam Rally – 13-14th July
“More than 1200 exhibits in attendance ranging from steam traction engines to vintage vehicles plus a large fun fair with traditional rides and side stands”
Glorious Goodwood – 30th July-3rd August
“Five days of thrilling action set against the magnificent backdrop of the rolling Sussex countryside, The Qatar Goodwood Festival is one of the highlights of the flat-racing season”
Arundel Festival – 16-26th August
“One of the biggest arts and music festivals in West Sussex with The Gallery Trail, the largest walking trail in the UK with hundreds of exhibiting artists”
Once the festive madness has been and gone for another year, the early months of a new year can be a struggle to get up for! That’s why we like to bring our village a little closer with our ever-popular Village Nights.
The first of the year is due to take place on Tuesday 5th March, we welcome all guests but booking ahead is essential and spaces fill up fast! The 2 course menu for our first Village Night for 2019 features a delightful lamb shank dish with mash of course, followed by our famous sticky toffee pudding. For all this, plus a pint of beer, house wine or soft drink included, the price is just £15 per head which is exceptional value.
Village Nights have become synonymous with superb food and company with our village customers filling The Lamb with their voices and laughter making it a very special night indeed.
A second night is due to take place in April with the date to be announced soon.
The Lamb, nestled between the South Downs and the sea, is a perfect place to get away from it all at any time of year, but as a cosy winter hotel we really hit the mark!
Our rooms, each featuring the name of a landlord in times gone by, are part of our warm and inviting gastropub, featuring an open fire in the bar area and log burner in the restaurant. In such a welcoming environment, it isn’t a surprise that our rooms each feature special touches that make it a home from home. Luxurious bedding and soft furnishings, wonderful bathrooms and coffee machines in each.
Priding ourselves on making our establishment cosy and welcoming to visitors from our village and those who have come from further afield, there is always a friendly face to greet you on arrival at The Lamb. We are happy to share with you a little history of our wonderful pub, or help you find the best walks and places to visit in the area. Angmering is spoilt to be so close to not only the Sussex coast, with its wonderful seafront walks and cafes, but also the endless rolling hills of the Downs. Historic towns of Arundel and Chichester are just a stones throw away and have some wonderful things to see and do.
So if you are looking for that perfect, cosy winter hotel for a romantic break or trip to the countryside, we would be happy to welcome you at The Lamb.
With the festive season almost upon us, the shops are certainly gearing up, many people are now looking at how to see their friends and family during December. We have already seen lots of bookings come in for our Christmas menu and in particular for our Christmas party menu!
For groups up to 8 in size, our a la carte Christmas menu (available from 1st -24th December) features some delicious highlights including, of course, the traditional Roast Turkey, sprouts, pigs in blankets and all the trimmings but also a slow roast pork belly, roast and confit rib of beef, pan fried seabass and a delightful mushroom and potato dauphinoise tart. These festive specials sit alongside some of our usual classics, with plenty to choose to suit all tastes.
Our homemade Christmas pudding is sure to be a hit with lashings of brandy sauce, but the dark chocolate and cherry brownie or the poached pear frangipane tart could be the winning desserts for some.
For groups of 9 or more, guests are invited to choose from our Party Menu. This is a set menu with 2 courses priced at £22.50 or 3 courses for £27.50. Plenty of festive choice including all the traditional options feature on this menu, which will be perfect for your office ‘do’ or when catching up with your wider family. This menu is available throughout December and January, so there is plenty of time to find that date you can all make!
To plan ahead, our Christmas opening hours are:
Chrismas Eve – Normal Hours
Christmas Day – Bar only open 12-2pm
Boxing Day – Open 12-5pm, food served 12-3pm
New Years Eve – Open 11am – 12.30am – restaurant is already sold out, but the bar will feature live music to play us into the New Year
New Years Day – Open 12-5pm, food served 12-3pm
We are very proud to announce that following a recent inspection, The Lamb has been accredited with the Cask Marque denoting the quality of our cask ale.
Cask Marque is an independent company, therefore their decision to award the Lamb with their seal of approval is fantastic, and our customers can be assured that we will continue to make the grade!
According to their website the Cask Marque team of qualified assessors visit over 10,000 pubs which hold the award. They test for temperature, appearance, aroma and taste. All beers must make the grade to pass the visit and obtain their accreditation. They report that independent research shows that over three quarters of beer drinkers recognise the Cask Marque as a badge of quality, which makes us even more proud to have our certificate on display.
As part of the scheme, we now have a listing on the Cask Marque website and their app, for discerning drinkers who like to check that the pub they are going to visit meets the high standards required to appear.
If you are looking for somewhere to experience some lunchtime fine dining in Sussex, look no further!
Fine dining doesn’t have to be exclusive to evening meals, at The Lamb we believe that a little lunchtime luxury is well deserved sometimes. Whether a business lunch, an overdue catch up with friends or a romantic liaison, The Lamb offers its full A La Carte menu at lunchtimes, alongside a lighter lunch menu.
Our talented head chef Richard is always hard at work crafting fresh and tasty menu items, meaning The Lamb’s reputation for fine dining in Sussex has grown rapidly. For example, why not starting your Lamb experience off with a delicious dish of home smoked salmon, white crab mayonnaise, lemon balm and beetroot.
One of our menu highlights is the roast breast and braised leg of Guinea Fowl with shallot, fondant potato and jus, but there are plenty to choose from with dishes to satisfy all tastes.
Of course you may not want a huge meal at lunch time, but this doesn’t mean you won’t experience fine dining – our lunch menu includes a wonderful set lunch with elegant dishes at just £15 for two courses or £19 for three. Sandwiches and light bites are also available.
If you have driven past The Lamb in the past week, you may have had your head turned by our wonderful new outdoor seating!
Martin has been busy in the past months designing, deciding and choosing the wonderful new tables, seating and umbrellas that are now situated in front of The Lamb overlooking our pretty village green. In muted colours, the bench tables along the front wall of the pub blend in wonderfully, but with a sturdy structure they won’t send your pint flying at the first sneeze. In front of the bench tables are a selection of round bistro tables with umbrella shades which are perfect for sipping your favourite tipple.
With such a warm start to the Summer we are really pleased we have got the new seating area ready for everyone to enjoy, and its been a huge success straight away. We are always looking for the little things that can make The Lamb even better and we hope everyone in the village loves the improvements we have made to our outdoor seating.
We regularly update our menus at The Lamb, our West Sussex gastropub situated in the village of Angmering, just a stone’s throw from the sea, the downs and market towns of Arundel and Chichester.
Changing our menus ensures we can offer the freshest, most local and of course seasonal ingredients to our visitors, who can expect something different each time they return. In addition, we regularly offer special dishes alongside our a la carte menu to tickle the taste buds of our regular diners, and first-time visitors, alike. Recent specials have included a starter of pork and pistachio pate, with a tomato chutney, dressed leaves and a toasted brioche, and a delightful pan seared duck breast with creamy mash, sautéed wild mushrooms and a red wine jus.
But new to our main a la carte menu this June are the following main courses:
Chalk stream trout, langoustines, confit potato, langoustine bisque
Seared Sashimi tuna, sweetcorn and avocado salsa, coriander
Roast chicken and tarragon croquette, caesar dressing, baby gem, crispy parma h
and a wonderful new dessert to add to those we already enjoy:
Banana parfait, caramelised banana, exotic fruit salsa
Our head chef, Richard, is always designing new dishes and has become very popular in the local area with many happy customers leaving glowing reviews for his cooking:
“Had another excellent meal at the Lamb last night! The fried duck starter with house made peanut butter was interesting, delicious and beautifully presented. And all the standards are executed with grace and top quality local ingredients. Bravo and keep up the good work Chef Rich and team!” Vanessa Hambidge via Facebook
We stock plenty of wine in Sussex at The Lamb
An extensive wine list is something we pride ourselves on at The Lamb, and we certainly don’t take the selection lightly. Finding wines to compliment our ever changing menu is a labour of love, and we like to think we’ve got a variety that accurately reflects a wide range of tastes. Here are some highlights from our current crop of wine in Sussex…
A salmon pink Champagne from France, with depth, freshness, and crisp aromas of strawberries, red currants, raspberries and black cherries. Expect fine bubbles and a persistent mousse.
Picpoul de Pinet Beauvignac
Elegant and floral, this golden white wine is perfect with seafood, such as our pan fried sea bass or monkfish.
A rosé aromas of red currants and orange zest, followed by a creamy medium-dry palate showing a nice balance of sweetness
Deep crimson colour with a bouquet of dark berries and spices. It is smooth and persistent with aromatic fullness
