We are planning a visit to The Old Railway.

There are four couples wishing to celebrate a special birthday in Petworth on Saturday night (6th Jan 2018).

Please can anyone recommend a lively friendly place to eat?

English, Indian idealy

Also any suggestions for a reliable 8 seater taxi service would be much appreciated ?

Thank you in advance

I have never found anywhere that stood out in Petworth but the food at the Noah's Ark at Lurgashall, which is about 5 miles from "The Old Railway", is outstanding and reasonably good value. Reservations would definitely be required for a Saturday evening.

I would ask the The Old Railway to recommend an 8-seater taxi service as they are likely to know who has one (and is reliable) better than anyone else.

The Lickfold Inn is also good - close to Lurgashall.


There are a couple of Indian restaurants in Petworth - Meghdoots is probably the better of the two. There are reviews of both on TA.

Ten miles away in Storrington there is an excellent Thai place - it is tiny so booking is essential:
