Reasons for trip

There are pubs and there are pubs – “The Old Cross”:http://theoldcross-pub.co.uk in Chichester is in a central location and was ideal to meet up for a simple lunch with friends.

As it was Monday it was relatively quiet and so we plonked ourselves down at a lovely large light table in the window so we had plenty of light. It looked clean and well furbished (the website implies it’s been recently renovated).

Whilst you need to place orders at the bar, this is the sort of place where they trust you to pay at the end (or perhaps four oldish codgers looked trustworthy). We had a reasonably priced bottle of Sauvignon Blanc and as we were also eating out in the evening, settled for simple sandwiches (priced from £3.49 to £4.99) with chips. They were well presented and arrived quickly.

However, a two course lunch menu for £7.45 appeared excellent value for say, whitebait and ham, eggs and chips. Whilst the menu won’t set the world alight for it’s innovation, it does include lots of simple, classic dishes.

When we paid our bill, we noticed a bottle of wine had been missed off. There are sometimes when you think you won’t tell them, but the service was so friendly and helpful, we had no hesitation in telling them about their error.
