This year we have changed the layout of the Guide so many of the Market Town businesses will now be in their own section and not in here. However we still have six pages and 22 examples of fantastic eateries so you are still spoiled for choice this year when eating out in and around the Horsham District.

Many of the old favourites have come back for more and this year we have several new cafes, pubs and restaurants, offering delicious fare utilising fresh local ingredients.

Click on the link below to find your first of many outings – take your friends and family, a business partner or someone dear to you, and enjoy the delights of Horsham District produce as designed and presented by local food and drink establishments.
