Many of the traditional South Downs pubs close to affluent Midhurst and Chichester have been transformed in recent years, from rustic watering holes favoured by walkers into civilised dining venues, and the 18th century, brick and flint Star & Garter is no exception.

If you love fresh fish and seafood then your trip down winding Sussex lanes will be well rewarded. Crab and lobster are landed at Selsey on the Sussex coast and fish is delivered direct from Portsmouth. Pride of place on the board goes to the Star & Garter platters (£40 and £75), the later offering a whole lobster, two dressed crab, scallops, wild salmon, large crevettes and a pint of prawns.
