I often meet friends at the Horse Guards on a Friday night . The food is stunning and the service amazing .The atmosphere is totally relaxed. You need to book and the parking is tricky . The decor for me is a bit dated but that is a minor detail.

We have just visited the Horseguards in Tillington and had another superb lunch. We started with potted trout and delicious dark bread, fantastic ham hock, chick pea soup, Followed by perfect roast beef? Beautiful vegetables, also, scrumptious pork, and roast shoulder of lamb. Food was amazing Can't wait to go back Great atmosphere full of life Lovely decor.

Went with discerning friends who chose a light lunch menu. After finding our first choice had sold out (at 1240) we were offered... More

Great menu - beautiful, seasonal, scrumptious food. Friendly, engaging staff. Lovely decor. Spot on attention to detail. Great garden. Look out for the shop hidden in the garden. A perfect Sunday lunch!

Excellent food and service. Burger was very good and venison was delicious. Good cheeseboard. Lovely old pub, cosy. Very busy at lunchtime during the week, so glad we'd booked. Dog friendly too and convenient for a walk in Petworth Park.

Pleasant location with great décor, can imagine arriving on horseback and eating in the main 'room' has all the atmosphere of the period, good food with pleasant staff, definitely visit again when in the area.

We have eaten here before but this visit proved to be disappointing. Fully booked for lunchtime so the kitchen would have been pretty busy. Some of our group have very good main course meals but the rest were not edible which was embarrassing and disappointing. This was dealt with but it would have been much better if we had been...
