The Little Fish Market
The Little Fish Market is making quite a name for itself on the Sussex foodie scene, having already picked up a score of five in The Good Food Guide 2018, scored a place in The Sunday Times’ top 100 restaurants, been awarded three AA rosettes and garnered countless rave reviews in the six years it has been running. They also came 44th at the National Restaurant Awards for 2017. The restaurant’s speedy rise to the top is down to owner Duncan Ray’s dedication to offering only the best. His background in prestigious restaurants such as the Latymer Restaurant at the Pennyhill Park Hotel in Surrey – where he also gained three AA rosettes – and The Fat Duck in Bray has instilled in him a passion for quality and getting the finer details right, and his enthusiastic and knowledgeable team at The Little Fish Market shares this ethos. Duncan and his team exclusively provide an exquisite five-course tasting menu, prepared using the freshest fish and seafood, taking diners on a gastronomic journey through the skilfully crafted courses. You might start with subtle harmonies of slip sole and seaweed butter or flavoursome mackerel with brandade and piquillo pepper. Moving through the menu, expect to encounter turbot, monkfish and other local seafood before concluding your culinary experience with pear Tatin, for example, served with gingerbread ice cream and cardamom caramel. As its name suggests, this is a small, bijou restaurant, and its popularity just keeps on growing, so booking ahead is advisable.
