Sunday Lunch at Marwick’s Brasserie in Bosham in Sussex

A few weeks ago, I travelled to Bosham near Chichester. We celebrated my husband’s birthday in Millstream hotel – a small, boutique hotel and on the last day of our stay we decided to have a Sunday lunch at Marwick’s Brasserie.

Location:

Marwick’s Brasserie is located in the center of Bosham village in The Millstream hotel. It can be easily reached by car from Portsmouth or Chichester – the drive takes around 20 minutes.

Atmosphere:

The brasserie creates a welcoming atmosphere with informal surroundings and lots of natural daylight. Our table was attended by a few waiters thought-out the afternoon. They were all friendly and professional.

The menu:

Marwick’s Brasserie features traditional favourites that change during the seasons. The dishes are prepared using the best ingredients most of them sourced locally.

Starters:

I decided to order one of the most popular dishes – a twice baked blue cheese soufflé with cheddar and spring onion sauce. It was simply amazing. I love cheese and soufflés so I this starter was a perfect choice for me.

Mains:

There was a nice selection of mains on the menu but as it was Sunday – my husband decided to have a traditional Sunday roast of English beef, Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes and red wine gravy.

I ordered fillet of bream with a lovely shellfish bisque, crushed new potatoes, spinach, and crab beignet. It was flavoursome.

Desserts:

My husband decided not to have any dessert as he was full however as I have a very bad sweet tooth, I had some sticky toffee pudding with vanilla ice-cream and toffee sauce. It was delish!

Overall experience:

We both really enjoyed our Sunday lunch at Marwick’s brasserie. Both service and food were great so if you ever in the area then you should definitely experience it yourself.

Our stay at The Millstream hotel in Bosham, Chichester

hotel front

As some of you might know it was my husband’s 31st birthday 2 weeks ago. I’ve decided to take my Prince Charming for a weekend away to Chichester. We’ve stayed in a cosy, boutique hotel in Bosham and today I would like to share with you a summary of our stay in the Millstream Hotel.

Location:

Millstream Hotel & restaurant is situated in the heart of Bosham village on the shores of Chichester Harbour. If you enjoy history then you will be keen to learn that it boasts the Holy Trinity Church which is depicted in The Bayeux Tapestry, as it was from Bosham that Earl Harold, later King Harold who set sail on his ill-fated trip to Normandy in 1064.

If you enjoy romantic walks then the hotel’s location should meet your expectations as it offers picturesque views of a beautiful harbour combined with a tranquil charm of other traditional surroundings. Bosham is also only a short distance from Chichester and Goodwood, with easy access to Arundel Castle, West Dean Gardens and Portsmouth Historic Dockyards that are only 25minutes drive away. It is a perfect destination for any travellers all year-round, no matter whether you are going there to relax, shop or explore the surrounding areas.

Service:

The reception desk is open 24 hours. As soon as we entered the hotel, we were welcomed by extremely helpful Giulia. Once we checked in, she offered us some great advice on what we could do whilst in Bosham. We dropped our bags and decided to have a drink at the classy and inviting lounge. Once again, the service was helpful and professional. Same applied to the restaurant staff who made us feel welcomed and made our trip enjoyable.

Rooms:

The Millstream hotel offers its guests 35 rooms to suit their needs and budget – ranging from single bedded rooms to exclusive suites in the Waterside cottage. All rooms are individually styled providing homely comforts. The décor of all rooms is classic with a modern twist. We stay in one of the premium rooms overlooking the front garden. Our room featured a comfortable bed, luxury linen, safe, mini fridge (with some complimentary water, milk and chocolates), a TV and a telephone. In addition, there were tea and coffee making facilities including the Nespresso coffee machine with capsules and a selection of delicious complimentary biscuits, which were freshly made in-house by the hotel’s pastry chef.

Our en-suite bathroom had a modern décor and walk-in shower. A selection of natural bath toiletries was also provided. In addition, some soft towels, slippers and soft bath gowns were provided. They were perfect for lounging in before and after our sightseeing.

Facilities:

In addition to some charming rooms, hotel features the bar, lounge, a recognised as a 2 AA Rosette restaurant and pretty gardens. After driving from Colchester for 4 hours, the bar was a great place to relax and enjoy a drink. There is a nice selection of alcoholic beverages on offer – I really enjoyed my Bellini.

As it was quite cold, we haven’t spent much time in the gardens but they are available during the warmer weather for drinks, afternoon teas, coffees and snacks.

Breakfast is offered in the main restaurant and provides a selection of made to order dishes.

Overall experience:

The Millstream hotel offers a charming accommodation to anyone seeking to experience some relaxing, unforgettable moments in English countryside. The location was great and service was faultless so I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who plans to travel to Chichester, Portsmouth or surrounding areas.

I would love to stay in this hotel again one day!
