West Dean Gardens Restaurant
Nestled at the foot of the South Downs near Chichester, West Dean Gardens Restaurant is set in one of the most beautifully restored gardens open to the public today. Here, visitors can enjoy freshly prepared lunches and afternoon teas while making the most of the glorious views from the outdoor terrace. Dishes utilise locally sourced ingredients where possible and even feature produce from the venue’s own gardens. After your meal, discover the gardens and wander through the 100m Edwardian pergola to the award-winning sunken garden. Explore the walled kitchen garden and 13 working Victorian glasshouses that are bursting with colourful flowers, fruit and vegetables. Then, follow the River Lavant to the spring garden and admire the flint bridges and surreal fibreglass trees. When you rest and refuel at the light and airy restaurant, make sure you leave enough time to browse the Gardens Shop for unique gifts and plants before you go.
