We cannot fault the food or service at this restaurant, one of the best tasting menus we have had and resonably priced! We will definitely be returning. Favourite course was definetly the apricot dessert but all was amazing. They made a real effort to ask any dietary requirements before we ordered which is a first. Normally I have to tell the waiter without being asked, so a nice touch! Very friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

Our second visit to the excellent Fig Tree. Each mouthful delicious with everything on the dish working together to make a tasty ensemble. You can see how much work goes into everything on the plate. Can't wait for our third visit. Can't recommend highly enough

We have eaten at the Fig Tree a few times before. Once again they nailed it. This is the best restaurant in the area. The food is complex, yet not fussy, SO much work goes into every dish and the flavours work very well together. The atmosphere is cosy and the staff friendly and helpful in just the right way. We were well advised as to which wine to drink with each dish. The dessert was an artistic masterpiece with flavours to match! We are so lucky to have this restaurant in our village.

We travelled from Worthing for our Anniversary meal at the Figtree, I’d not hesitate in travelling much further for this amazing food we were served.
From the moment you step inside and are greeted very warmly you know this is a cut above the usual.
Starting with an exquisite amuse bouche and some of the best bread I’ve had it’s obvious these are talented chefs.
I started with the Seabass a beautiful balanced dish with such intense flavours simply incredible. My beef main was just as impressive delivering mouthful after mouthful of flavour, a complex dish full of local and fresh ingredients masterfully put together. Rounded of to perfection with the Pear dessert, another immaculate dish.
Surprised at the end with some petit fours ( see picture )
It’s no exaggeration to say this was the best meal I’ve had, coupled with the attentive hosting.
I urge anyone who appreciates fine dining to give the Figtree a try, you won’t be disappointed, we we certainly be returning as soon as we can.
