Took my mother there for lunch today, from the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome indeed. An excellent range of quality teas and hot fresh 'house' coffee, it was nice not to be bombarded with 27 different coffees like other establishments The waitress said I could have hot milk if I liked which was a lovely...

Having been a regular customer of the previous restaurant of the same name we found this new incarnation disappointing in every way.

Moonrakers has a Unique Selling Point ~ insofar as their rear garden is a wonderful haven, quarantined from the bustle of the narrow part of the High Street through Alfriston. The OUTLOOK from that rear, brick-paved garden across The Tye to St Andrews Church by the green ~ it's a really special feature. The new owners seem to have rescued... More

Unfortunately, it was quite a cold evening when we booked our dinner so we couldn't sit outside, but the welcome we were given made up for it. In fact, we wondered if we should know the owner, as he was so friendly and helpful! The meal was excellent, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit, so were sad to learn that the... More

What a great restaurant. The menu isn't extensive (though more than sufficient) however, the food is superb. The staff are helpful, efficient and knowledgeable about the food and the excellent choice of wines. The place has a great ambiance and all of these things combined to make our evening most enjoyable.

After moving house to the lovely village of Alfriston I saw that the legendary Moonrakers was to be open for a few nights and thought we had best book to go. I called the restaurant to make a reservation and was met with an answerphone message saying 'leave a message with your booking and we'll get right back to you'.... More

This is a jewel of a restaurant in the centre of Alfriston just 6 miles from our home. Unfortunately, the whole experience did not live up to the experiences of many writers or we just picked the wrong night and then paid heavily for the privilege. Menu - limited so should have been perfect with only 4 appetizers, 3 entrees... More

Fabulous food, amazing wine sourced personally from French vineyard. Intimate, friendly. Each course superb (best dauphinoise potato ever had in a restaurant and I have lived in France) . My husband was delighted with my choice for his birthday and we will return! Thank you for a wonderful evening!
