This has been a regular pub for a few of us Worthing Rugby fans for a few seasons now so this is an overall observational post, not just a one off visit.

1) NEVER anything short of happy and very polite young waitresses or waiters, if they don't get everything right it's only down to a lack of experience.

2) The food is good value, it's most certainly not over priced and there often special offers from the Table Table chain. Although I must admit there are times when this or that is "off at the moment."

3) Usually a couple of real ales on, yes they are kept a little cool but this is an all round pub trying to cater for everyone, not a "Good Beer Guide" proper boozer with 10 hand pumps and bearded locals!

4) Noted the comment from one poster about the red wine not being allowed to breathe, well hang on, it will have been a bottle of Ernst & Gallo or similar (forgive any spelling errors) for between £8 to £10 pounds, not an aged Claret in a dusty bottle from an outstanding cellar!

5) It's not often that our group is accompanied by small children, however when it has been, the staff can't do enough to help, providing a high chair, childrens size meals etc.

So, unless you are a pretencious red wine officianado, I'd recommend The Roundstone for a good value lunch or evening meal in very pleasant surroundings!

This pub was mentioned on 'Fake Britain' on BBC1 this evening - not for the beer but because 3 of the staff were involved in the production and sale of fake paintings!

Thought I'd write another review since my last visit in april 2012. It's still the nicest pub restaurant in the whole area by a mile!! Service is always friendly, food is always great and I and hubby have tried most of the menu, they have a very loyal local and not so local, due to the hotel, following.

Quiz nights mon and tues night which are fun, all in all just really good. If you are thinking of going here, then write a review so all can see for themselves. As for the people who will never go there again.... Great they really don't need you or want you.

Went there on Saturday 18th February 2012 about 18.30 hrs.
Only beer offered was Spitfire though this did not include Larger.
There was 3 people in our party, one order the duck, one order the lamb stew of some kind (waitress had to go & check as she thought they may have sold out (I thought how old was this and how many times has it been reheated) waitress returned & we were informed there was some lamb left) I ordered the Fish & Chips, we also ended up ordering a bottle of wine, though I was already prepared to leave and go elsewhere due to the lack of beer.
Waitress was cheerful and pleasant, The red wine was opened and poured before it had time to breath. The food finally arrived!
The batter on the fish was over fried & the fish inside was mushy as though it had been fired twice the peas were hard as bullets & the chips were raw inside. My wife seemed to like the Duck (though she seldom complains about anything and accepts that things are not always as good as they can be). My friend who was paying had the lamb, he regretted his choice very quickly as there was hardly any lamb in the pot the carrots where so over cooked, the broccoli was under cooked the potatoes tasted like smash.
When I first complained to the waitress about my meal I was offered a free coffee or a dessert which I did not want and asked to see the manager, this did not happen. Once my good friend had all that he could bear & I noticed how much he left. I got up and went to see the manager myself, he came over to our table and though pleasant & apologetic saying that this was unlike their normal service, eventually said that he was only going to charge for the duck and the soft drink that the wife had. We did accept though personally I think that the whole lot should have been free and that they should have paid us for our time and compensation for trying to endure such substandard food that had we actually eaten it all I am sure we would have ended up ill. I am not sure if there was any Chefs on duty or even any proper cooks around that that day.
I could never ever recommend this place since it changed hands and would never ever set foot in the place again. If anybody out there reading this is thinking of going there all I can say is BE PREPARED FOR THE WORST EXPERIENCE OF YOUR LIFE THEN YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I joined this site specifically to warn people off ever going in the Roundstone. The worst service I have ever received. The young man who "served" us was rude, arrogant and unhelpful. I thought he was joking at one point as I've never encountered anyone so rude. We ended up cancelling our order and walking out, and my children were extremely upset.
