Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This lovely restaurant seems to get better and better. We both had the tasting menu and what a delight it is! I won't elaborate on each course but suffice to say you won't get better anywhere in Sussex. Attentive, friendly service and considering the amount...of work it must take to produce food like this very good value. Charming S.A. Chenin Blanc.More

Had an amazing time here. Every course was absolutely delicious! A flavour experience. The duck course was a personal highlight. Wine and cocktails lovely too. Service from Zoe was also top notch. And I had a little birthday suprise at the end. Can't wait to...come backMore

Another amazing meal at The Fig Tree, the 6 course tasting menu was superb. Each complex course was bursting with flavour finishing with one of the best desserts I’ve had, a very talented team in the kitchen and great waiting service as well. Cannot recommend...highly enough.More

This is our fourth visit to the Fig Tree and each time our meal has been superb, a great example of fine dining. We had the six course tasting menu which was great value when compared to other restaurants. I highly recommend the Fig Tree...and look forward to returning soon.More

I was fortunate enough to be given this Dining experience as a birthday gift, and we had the 8 course Taster Menu. This would have to be the best Dining experience of my life; every course was a taste sensation of fantastic flavours. It would...be difficult to rate one aspect or course above any other - all were incredible & would wholeheartedly recommend.More

Just lovely. Classy. The food is really really great, the staff charming, the wine list has a few unusual bottles and it just works. I don't even think it's expensive.

As ever a wonderful meal worthy of 5 stars. The minus was the ambient temperature which we found unpleasant on a very cold November day. We appreciate the current issues around energy costs which must be a worry and threat to margins but think you...need to revisit the problem and make better provision particularly for elderly clients who are more susceptible to cold and probably make up the majority at lunch.More

I believe the A la Carte menu is the same for lunch and dinner. Looking at the website: "menus" There is also a separate menu available at certain times - with two course for £17.50.
