If you're in town to visit the historic village and the mansion grounds, why not combine your sightseeing with some delicious food at one of Petworth's excellent restaurants? The village has plenty of places to tuck into some gourmet grub after taking in the local sights. So, as you check through your snaps, why not relax with a high-class curry, or some superb pub food? Petworth's restaurants make it a great dining destination, and all of them can be booked with Quandoo.
Although it's tucked away in the verdant Sussex countryside, Petworth's Indian restaurants may well come as a surprise. If you thought that dining on the Downs was all about country pubs or tea shops, think again. Without leaving the English countryside, you can enjoy delicacies from a range of Indian culinary traditions. At places like Basmati in the heart of the village, you can savour exquisite tastes and aromas from the Indian subcontinent. Settle into historic premises on Market Square, and sample exotic treats like Goan fish curries, or Bengali prawn bhunas.
However, if you do want to enjoy a relaxing afternoon meal with family or friends, there's no lack of spacious country gastropubs restaurants near Petworth to explore.

If you fancy a wild boar Scotch egg or tagliatelle cooked with locally-grown broad beans and peas, these classic rural pubs will be a delight.
