Not such a jolly good show from the sailors

Disadvantages: Rather tatty pub. Not that warm inside. Food was rather hit and miss.

Chilling out in Chilgrove

Advantages: Wonderful location at the foot of the South Downs. Attentive service. Great pies.

Diamond review  Nice nosh in Norfolk

Advantages: Attractively decorated. Glorious sea views. Welcoming and friendly.
Disadvantages: Main restaurant was quite expensive. Some of the food rather too fussy and "clever"
