We have dined at The Leconfield a few times since it opened a few years ago - we have had some amazing meals - and some that were not so good. But last Sunday we went there for lunch for the first time and had one of the best Sunday lunches (apart from my own cooking of course!). Delicious roast... More

Had a meal here last week. Vegetarian choice was very very good. Lovely atmosphere in the restaurant. They were very busy, as you would expect near Christmas, but the service was very good. Would recommend this place. Will definitely go back

A Balmy Wednesday in December when 20 of us descended on the Leconfield for our annual Senior management Christmas party. The restaurant set in the lovely town of Petworth is a mixture of old world charm and contemporary design. On arrival we were ushered through to the oak beamed reception area on the first floor where we had drinks and... More

I went here for a staff christmas lunch and can't recommend it highly enough. The service was impeccable from start to finish, relaxed, friendly and very professional. The menu was a set christmas one with good and varied choices. The main course of blade of beef bordelaise was the highlight, cooked to perfection and extremely good. The white chocolate creme...

My family and I recently dined at The Leconfield to celebrate a birthday. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food, although quite taken aback by the pricing, which was out of line with the overall experience. As good as the food was, the service element was not up to par; the servers were confused, seemed inexperienced, and... More

Friendly well trained staff looked after us very well in simple chic country style surroundings. An exciting menu with some food sourced locally. Quality cooking but London prices . For those on a limited budget there are interesting bar snacks served before 8 pm. A great venue but not on a budget.

Rarely have I decided so quickly to go with the set menu at a restaurant. Pan seared foie gras, hare pie and praline semi freddo with honeycomb for 29 quid? Don't mind if I do! Great place. Too many cushions in the front dining area (tiny tiny criticism!).

Having booked this for an anniversary meal, we were initially excited by the menu. Starters were lovely, but we found some of the attention to detail irksome; no knives on the bread plate, having to go and find someone to take a jacket, asking for a spoon for the soup that was delivered without one. The mains were OK but... More
