The Earl of March can trace its origins back to the 18th century when it was originally a coaching inn where famous poet William Blake penned the words for “Jerusalem”. Today it is owned by by Giles Thompson, former executive head chef of the Ritz Hotel. Since 2005, the establishment has undergone a radical transformation into its current standing as a purveyor of haute cuisine using locally-sourced ingredients where possible. Set in the idyllic village of East Lavant near Chichester, beautifully presented meals can be enjoyed in the cosy indoor setting or in the garden with its views of the rolling vistas of the South Downs.
