Gorgeous setting right on the river in Arundel, a lovely place to watch the time go by, peaceful and when it's sunny, no better place. Good pub food...and drink. The only down side is when sitting outside on a summery afternoon, there were loads of wasps, otherwise, couldn't be faulted.

Booked for Sunday lunch & was told the only availability was for midday as they were 'fully booked' for all times. Loads of reserved tables but not many people about while we were there, nor when we left around 1. Beautiful surroundings but the roast dinners were a huge let down. The nut roast was a block of non-descript brown... More

Have been to Black Rabbit several times in past, but was really disappointed with Sunday lunch. a) Arrived on busy Sunday @ 1.30pm, b) Restaurant part was half empty with lots of reserved labels on tables. Was told it was fully booked out but got busy in bar. c) Booked lunch, and the card payment system asked if I wanted... More

Visited today at 14:00 , very nice place, beautiful location and friendly staff , this is the reason for the 3 stars, foodwise expensive for what they offer!! Very average, we got a burger, fish pie, veggie burger and ribs. Very average burgers with really soggy half cold chips, the fish pie for the amount of 13.99 was really not... More

Six of us for lunch and all very mediocre I chose the sirloin steak and asked for medium rare and it arrived overdone, a skinny steak with peas and a few lettuce leaves nearly £16, ouch. The staff were very good pity the food didn't match. Great location so guess they rely on that instead of good food. Won't be... More

I came here with my boyfriend today for lunch. We got there for midday so we could get a table alright as we know it is very popular for food! We both enjoyed our meals, it was good quality food and we will be returning. I can imagine how nice it is to sit outside there in the summer.

Stopped by yesterday for lunch outside as it was a sunny day. Unimpressed by food quality. Scampi, small amount of peas and what looked like oven chips delivered after waiting 20 minutes. Sadly, awoke in night with upset tummy and continues from all ends today. Won't be going again. Might be an idea to keep the cutlery inside so people... More

Stopped for drinks on a beautiful sunny day. Drinks were fine but could not help hearing the 2 tables around us complaining at the food!! We ate here years ago and had a horrid meal so I guess not much has changed! Pity as its in an ideal location next to the river! Drinks OK but FOOD.....a definite NO!!

Went for lunch . No sign on table to say reserved. Happy to take the food order but pushed of of the table by a very rude member of staff who escorted a group of 8 people to the table before we had finished. Felt very unwelcome by the experience.

As a Picturesque pub by a river the Black Rabbit is perfect , however if you want to order food or drinks on a busy day its farcical , queued for the bar for 20mins to place an order for drinks and food with everyone moaning about the wait and the crazyness of the system !! .... food is good...
