We have been to this lovely village pub many times and thoroughly enjoyed the food. However, last Sunday was a huge disappointment. The staff were inattentive and the service very slow. Our first choice was "off" the menu. The subsequent roast (lamb) was tough, the potatoes were dry and hard, overall not up to the usual standard. What a shame.

The food is impeccable! Having a 'Push the boat out' meal out with the current Mrs T... we thoroughly enjoyed every moment in this restaurant. 3 courses and some wine provided us with one of the best evenings we've had out. Bring your wallet as it isn't Burger King money.... but I do believe its worth every penny!

The Hurstwood raises all expectations of English country gastro-pub dining, especially for those of us, like myself, who are rather sceptical of country pubs. The reason for the high-quality of service, the cosy and refined atmosphere, the dining experience and the superlative cuisine is the soul behind the business; Martin, and his wife and partner-in-crime. The unrelenting passion they apply... More

Our second visit to The Hurstwood. It's always a good ideas to book for dinner, to which many people have commented on before, but if common sense prevails, a good restaurant / GastroPub when popular will always be busy. No brainer. We started with some Champs, lovely treat, then starters. The Duck was simply delicious, the Chicken Livers were the... More

Dined at this establishment a few times now as only living in buxted and have never written a review until now! The building inside and outside is absolutely stunning! However the food has always been good or ok sometimes I find the portions especially the starters can sometimes be a little small and quite pricey!! Also not on all occasions... More

Recently visited The Hurstwood with friends for an evening meal. Quite nice inside but a bit cramped. Staff quite friendly and efficient but at the prices they charge, the male staff could smarten up a bit. The starters were nice but the main courses that my wife and I had were quite average. The lamb chops were ok but the... More

I went lunchtime with two old friends not knowing what to expect and found friendly service and surprised at the amount of custom given a Monday lunch . The three of us ate from the lunch time speacial menu and rated it very highly. And I booked again for four on Wednesday night .

Such a shame this village Pub has become just another restaurant. We have tried to visit on two weekends now, shut both times. A food offering is great, but a Pub should be a Pub too... We were seriously considering a family house nearby, but we are reconsidering now. Without the decent 'Local' we were expecting, the village loses it's... More
