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.

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

Our Sunday roasts in West Sussex take some beating!
It’s a treasured tradition throughout our nation – the classic Sunday roast. Filling, tasty, and with a heavenly ratio of meat to potatoes, the perfect Sunday roast is something to look forward to with friends and family. However, having this famous meal at home takes a lot of time and effort – prepping everything beforehand plus the washing up means you’re saying goodbye to a good portion of your Sunday afternoon – a sacred part of the weekend in which to relax before the week starts. The Lamb gives you the best of both worlds – a perfectly cooked roast for you to enjoy without the stress before and after!
For us, the classic Sunday roast can only be improved by making it a three course meal. Our talented team in the kitchen have put together a delicious selection of smaller meals to precede the main event, and these, like our main menus, change to reflect seasonality. If you’re after a traditional Sunday roast, then that’s exactly what you can have; choose from roast topside of beef, leg of lamb, or loin of pork. For vegetarians, our mushroom tagliatelle is a fantastic meat free alternative, or if you’re a fish lover, there’s pan fried cod on the menu too! If you’re simply more of a grazer, we have a selection of pressed meats with a variety of trimmings to get your teeth into. View our sample menu here.
After all that savoury, you’ll probably still have room for sweet, and we’ve got some delights on the dessert menu! Our chef is always producing beautiful desserts, combining flavours to create unbeatable sweets; plus there’s the classic selection of ice creams, and a cheese board!
Our Sunday roasts in West Sussex are very popular indeed, so it’s advisable to book for your special weekend meal. You can reserve a table through this handy page of our website – we look forward to seeing you soon!
You can look forward to wonderful food, service and atmosphere every time you book a table at our gastropub in Sussex
The general definition of a gastropub, is a drinking establishment that places emphasis on food. At The Lamb, we strive to go above and beyond the definition, without losing the charm that you look for in a traditional pub. Our emphasis is definitely on food, and with a team of skilled chefs in our kitchen, our gastropub in Sussex serves the highest quality food with impeccable service.
What makes our food special, aside from the skill and the science that goes into it, is the local ingredients we use to craft it. Local farms, fishermen and vegetable growers are all integral to the quality of our dishes, and the relationships we have with these local suppliers are something we continue to treasure. Our menus change frequently to keep up with seasonality, and our passion for variety, so having a wide range of options from local providers of ingredients is very important indeed.
While we’re on the theme of variety, we’d like to point out the choice on our menu, which ranges from dishes that are on the more ‘fine dining’ end of the gastropub section, to meals that are more traditional, yet still infused with our style and skill. There’s also plenty of variety when it comes to where you sit and enjoy your food. Whether you dine in the bar, the restaurant, the orangery or the garden, you can look forward to wonderful food, service and atmosphere every time you book a table at our gastropub in Sussex.
