The food here was very nice... accept the use of frozen fruit in the pavlova! It's summer and therefore soft fruit season... I consider this to be very remiss of the kitchen.

I must say the service did not match the food and almost let the food down. I'm sure a well marked off clip board is very important but the time doing this could have been spent filling diners wine glasses! Staff walked past our table several times but not once did they refill a glass.

From what we could gather this was classed as the 'posh' restaurant in the area. It was very nice but by that standard the service needs to up its game slightly.

We stayed at the Wingrove House for 3 nights this week. First impressions were good, plenty of parking, met by Harry on reception who quickly took us to our room. Room number 5 on the first floor was tastefully decorated with a huge bed, and decent bathroom with a good double shower. All the fixtures and fittings were of good quality. When we booked, we thought the room had tea and coffee making facilities - but there were none - we thought we had misunderstood. We were a little surprised to read a review when we got home, saying that complementary coffees/teas were available from reception ?? (Perhaps staff should be trained to explain this more fully, and the website says "cafe bar in this room ").
|We ate in the restaurant and had breakfast every morning, and the food was excellent. No complaints there. However, anyone booking a room here - we would NOT recommend Room 5 if you are a light sleeper. On a warm evening it was impossible to have the window open between midnight and 6 am due to traffic noise - Every evening severe plumbing noises started and lasted for at least 30 minutes at around 10.30 pm and again at 7.30 am. We did mention this to staff on booking out.
All the staff were very polite and helpful, but for such a lovely building with tastefully decorated rooms, it seemed souless.. with no real atmosphere.

We stayed for a couple of nights as a last minute walking trip. Other guests were using it as a base for attending Glyndebourne. Just off the main part of Alfriston, in a lovely location with the restaurant overlooking the church green. The hotel has a lovely garden (not used as it rained) onto which the restaurant also opens out. I could see that summer al fresco dining would be a delight. The hotel has good parking. I would suggest that this place would not be the first choice if you have small children - it's much more a place for adults. Whilst being next to the main road was a concern regarding traffic noise, I was pleasantly surprised that the windows of our room cut out the noise well. We stayed in the standard double room, which was very comfortable and well appointed. Please be aware that the floor covering (seagrass) means that you can't have food and drink within your room - this would be the only reason I would give the place an Excellent minus one, as I would expect tea and coffee making facilities to be available to all guests for the rates charged. The staff would have been prepared to make a drink, but personally I would suggest that the lounge area could accommodate the required facilities. The breakfasts were delicious with homemade yoghurt and preserves, good cooked options, proper fresh fruit salad and cereals. The one evening meal we had was delicious too (set menu options), and the quantities were more than adequate. So all round a good experience in very comfortable surroundings with friendly and professional staff. I was told that this restaurant with rooms was under new ownership, so I hope that these standards are maintained. I would be happy to visit again to check this out.

We stayed here in July 2016. There is ample off road private parking. We were met by Ian, a very efficient and friendly reception process with the amenities for the hotel and our room explained. Room 2 was upstairs and was a good size with everything you might expect in a good quality hotel. The bathroom was well maintained and equipped with large shower. Tea and coffee making facilities were not available in the room but it was made clear to us that tea and coffee were available on request from reception free of charge, this worked well and was not an issue. The room did not have air conditioning which on the hottest day of the year was a little concerning. However, the room was equipped with a large free standing fan which kept air circulating and with windows open just about kept the room temperature reasonable. I would describe the hotel as being of a colonial Style and thanks to the efforts of the magnificent staff it was like staying in a private club. Every single member of staff we met were helpful and friendly and made our stay a really pleasant experience. I would not hesitate to stay here again and would certainly recommend the hotel.

Wingrove House has gone from being a slightly upmarket pub to a very pleasant eatery over the years. Having not been to it's latest iteration, indeed not been there for some years we took the plunge and went last night.

On arrival one is struck by the feel of a colonial house, nice gardens and impressive entrance with a formal but friendly greeting.

We sat in the lounge choosing our meal over a gin and tonic from the menu which whilst not massive was enticing.

My wife started with the quail egg followed by the fillet steak and I went for smoked salmon followed by sea bream, both were beautifully cooked and presented by friendly waitresses accompanied by a bottle of wine from the list.

The house is tastefully furnished and decorated however, due to the plethora of hard surfaces is very noisy reminiscent of a swimming pool at the height of the summer holidays, we feel carpets or soft furnishings would cure this problem and produce an opulent comfortable feel.

All in all a very agreeable evening out.
