The whole evening at the Leconfield was a truly enjoyable experience. From the moment we walked in the staff and the manager were so friendly and welcoming and the environment is very stylish and elegant. The wine was really lovely and the main courses delicious. I'm not usually much of a desert person, but I think these deserts were the... More

A long booked evening with four good friends lived up to and exceeded expectations. We were warmly welcomed and well looked after from start to finish by polite and attentive staff. The food was all first class with a special mention for the signature starter of crab ravioli and the very fine baked oysters. The wines recommended by the well... More

We were looking for somewhere a bit special for lunch in Petworth and accidentally stumbled on the Leconfield. Very happy we did! We had the lunch set menu, £25 for 2 courses and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Service excellent, good value. Will definitely return.

A little rushed getting us to our table - would have liked a little more time to sit and have a drink but the food was excellent, very well presented and served and we had a very good evening.
