The Charlton Hunt

The Charlton Hunt was the earliest recorded foxhunt in the country. Its fame for superb sport drew the elite of society, including the 1st Duke of Richmond who bought Goodwood as a place to stay to go hunting and entertain his friends. That heritage has inspired The Charlton Hunt, serving a delicious a la carte menu celebrating the finest local produce.  With accents of walnut and marble, the dining room is hung with photographs by celebrated fashion photographer Uli Weber, taken on the day the Charlton Hunt was recreated for the first time in over 250 years.

Traditional dining with a twist. Our menu captures the historic setting through traditional dishes ranging from rump of lamb to sea bass with charred scallop. It also takes a modern twist with mains such as creamy Sussex mushroom gnocchi served with seasonal vegetables. For those who fancy an afternoon tea, we offer traditional finger sandwiches with a range of cakes including freshly baked scones with strawberry jam and clotted cream.
