Owner description: With 140 varieties to choose from, there’s no better place to taste and buy English wine than in our dedicated shop, with our specialists on hand to help you make the perfect selection. We always have a bottle or two open for an impromptu tasting, but you can book a tutored wine tasting too – why not treat a friend or relative with one of our vouchers for a very original gift?

Had dinner here on Saturday night with colleagues and wives from our finance club, and I have got to say from start to finish the whole experience was fantastic. The hospitality and host was outstanding. If you are looking somewhere a bit up market look no further.

We visited this beautiful place - even in the grey and wet of February - with a group of friends to stay for a weekend, the welcome we received was warm and friendly, the rooms very, very comfortable with every amenity we could wish for. The dinner we had in the restaurant was impressive with a helpful and knowledgeable mini wine tasting so that we could each choose a wine to accompany each of our courses, our young waitress was charming. Breakfast the next morning was extensive and delightful. We then visited the shop and purchased some wine to take home, helped by the friendly and knowledgeable owner. What could have been a weekend spoilt by the awful weather was a delight to visit, we will be going to Glyndebourne in the summer and very much look forward to a return visit.

I had lunch here today with my family, and we were all very impressed with the food, and the tastefully designed restaurant next to the wine shop. The service was friendly and efficient, and my main course of pheasant in a lovely sauce was very good, and with vegetables (included in the price) was filling. I could just about fit in a pudding of a very well made creme brulee.
Some time ago, I hosted my 60th birthday here, for about 30 guests, held in the nearby converted barn with rooms above. The whole thing could not have been better. We had canapes and English sparkling wine, a full meal and coffees. Everyone was delighted, and my host, Christine, could not have been nicer and made the day very special.

I honestly do not know where to start with this review. The English Wine Centre is a jewel set in the Sussex landscape. My now wife and I was looking for a place to hold our wedding and this was the first and subsequently the last place we looked at! Why bother going anywhere else?! From the moment we got to your beautiful venue we knew that we was in for a special treat.
Colin met us for a pre arranged tour of the grounds, barn and hotel. It was breath taking especially as we came on a Friday, and they where preparing for a wedding on the Saturday. The barn which dates back to the 16th century has been fully restored and is licensed as a venue for civil ceremonies.
The hotel which has 5 rooms are amazing!!! So beautifully laid out and the attention to detail is second to none!
Needless to say we booked and paid the deposit on the spot!
Great communication in the 12 months leading up to the wedding and very much enjoyed our wine tasting morning to select the wines for the day. Colin has a huge knowledge of wines and is clearly passionate about choosing the right wines for the food selected. And they did not disappoint. All of our guests where so impressed with how nice the wines and champagne was.
The food..... Absolute first class!! The wine centre was awarded its first michelin star at Christmas and its not hard to see why. The food was exquisite absolute first class and all of our guests gushed about how delicious the food was! Again we thank you for that.
Christine Mundy co owner & wedding organiser extraordinaire!! Our day was left in your most capable hands and you did not disappoint! Nothing was to much trouble and you clearly enjoy being apart of the big day. Your staff are an absolute credit to the wine centre. All very smart dressed in black and again nothing was to much trouble. Even when we asked for a few tables and chairs to be put in the barn for the reception, in the blink of an eye it was done.
I hope our review helps people to make a decision to go along and check out the wine centre for the possible venue for your big day or a weekend break or even a wonderful meal in the intimate restaurant and enjoy a gastronomical sensation accompanied by beautiful local wines and beers.
We love this place and look forward to coming back for dinner or a weekend break soon. Please ignore negative reviews on trip advisor as competitors in and around the area can quite easily write discrediting reviews out of spite or sheer jealousy.
Thank you Colin & Christine, you are lovely people and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts

I went with a friend on the spur of the moment.
The food was excellent , service friendly but professional.
We were guided in our choice of wine and it was outstanding.
We have been asked to a private function and I can't wait to take my husband.
