Description: We look forward to welcoming you to the Dining Room at Deans Place, our newly refurbished restaurant. Our menus change monthly along with daily chef's recommendations so that we can offer the best of Sussex's wealth of local produce wherever possible. During the week, we have our more casual food offering with our Terrace & Bar menu, which is available from midday until 9:30pm. At the weekends, lunch is served in The Dining Room on Saturdays and Sundays from 12:30pm and last orders are at 3pm. Our traditional Sunday Lunches are extremely popular and are available in both The Dining Room and in the Terrace & Bar. The Dining Room is open every night for dinner from 6:30pm and last orders are taken at 9:30pm. Non residents are always welcome. All menus found on our site should be treated as sample menus. If you are interested in knowing the current month's menu, or would like to discuss dietary needs, please do not hesitate to contact the hotel. We do reserve the right to make amendments to any of our menus at any given time, however, they will always be in keeping with the style and quality that we are known for.

“Excellent Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2012

Dinner is taken in the traditional, well furnished and nicely decorated dining room at the rear of the hotel, overlooking the Sussex countryside. The dinner started well with an "amuse bouche" of butternut squash soup, whilst the menu had a wide choice of fish, meat and poultry both for starters and the main course where they were served with a good choice of accompanying vegetables, all nicely cooked, well presented and served by efficient friendly staff. The selection of desserts was excellent catering for all tastes and produced by the highly skilled kitchen team to look most inviting. There was a well chosen wine list all at very reasonable prices.
