We only stopped by the cafe here for a tea and cakes. Excellent selection of cakes but when they were bought out to us in the garden, they were ridiculously small slithers. I took them back and asked if this was their portion size. They said no and that they were busy and had done it hurriedly (they weren't very... More

My wife and I visited this venue for a light lunch. The grounds of Firle Place are beautiful and the house's interior has an eminent reputation, so we naturally expected the same quality of the teashop there. Sadly, we were deeply disappointed. The range of food offered was very limited and service was very slow considering there were hardly any... More

Having joined the HHA in April my wife and I have been visiting their properties whilst in Sussex/Kent and ventured to Firle after leaving Sheffield Park (NT)(Approx 15 mile 30mins). The conducted tour (approx one hour) was interesting and informative (500 years owned by the Gage family) The tearoom is open to non-visitors also. Adult £8.50 Senior £7.50 Child £4.00... More

We visited the new opened Firle place for a garden show which was quite entertaining but we really enjoyed visiting the house which is delightful and interesting. It is now open after being closed for a number of years for refurbishment and although there is still work to be done it was a pleasent visit

We attended the annual garden show at Firle Place and enjoyed the stalls, the ambience and the grounds which were spectacular and also there was lambing going on which was great. There were lots of attractions for children so grandparents please note! However, the stairways and grounds were uneven and it was quite difficult to walk over parts of the... More

Café staffed by a very rude man with dubious standards of sobriety and hygiene. Visitors not even tolerated by Lady Gage who was offensive and ill educated about herbs, their uses and the different properties within the same species. Herb Garden is an insult to the intelligence of the public to invite them in, when it needs basic tending and... More

Having been here in E Sussex for 7 years, we finally visited Firle Place; what a wonderful house, super little cafe, wonderful grounds all ver contained and not open to the gen public too often so well worth a visit.

The restoration of the ruins of Lewes Priory has given the town an airy park for the benefit of the town dwellers and a piece of history by the preservation of the Priory ruins for the benefit of locals and visitors alike.

The house, formal rooms and the parkland in which it sits are all stunning. A gem set in the new South Downs National Park. The tour of the house was very interesting and was followed by an excellent tea in the newly refurbished tea rooms. One was left with the impression that you had been allowed, just for a moment,...
