The World's End sits on Arundel Road, opposite an under-path, which leads to Highdown. This pub is what you would envisage an English pub to look like, strong wooden interior, low beams, old portraits and paintings resting on the walls with a grand brick fireplace as the centre piece. The pub is family and dog friendly, to which they even stock dog biscuits behind the bar. This was the perfect place to spend a Saturday afternoon soaking up the sun.
For lunch I chose the sweet potato and red pepper burger, topped with baby gem lettuce, sliced tomato, mature cheddar, mayonnaise and tomato chutney served with chips. The burger bun was soft and floury with a tasty homemade vegetable patty inside. My boyfriend chose the hand battered fish and chips, coated in Tanglefoot ale batter and served with chips, garden peas and bread and butter. I wish the portion of the meal was slightly larger for the price we paid. I used to think pub food was a wholesome and heavy meal which filled you up for three days, but in recent times its all about less is more and I'm not so much a fan of that.
Overall this is a charming English pub, which has a lovely garden to enjoy the weather and relax over an ice cold cider.
