Not sure what the fuss is about. Food was ok, service was defiantly just ok. Wine not chilled just slightly under room temp. There are many other places offering this standard of all round service for half the cost. I would shop around.

I had lunch at The Leconfield today and found the food, wine, service and atmosphere to be of a very high standard. The set menu was excellent and the staff were attentive and well mannered. I dined with my partner in the Courtyard, which was wonderful and intimate (despite the wasps) and made for a delightful afternoon. I would recommend... More

My son and I decided to stop off for lunch, after a lovely morning shopping in Guildford. We were not disappointed. The warm welcome and level of service was as good as ever and the food simply delicious. The Leconfield never disappoints .

We were greeted by Richard as we walked in. What a change to feel welcome in a restaurant of this standard. We knew we would enjoy the evening then. The staff were attentive and unobtrusive. We had a table by the window. Very well set up. I chose a lamb rump with a Moroccan style casserole. I am unable to... More

I have twice used the private dining rooms for birthday lunches.On both occasions, our particular requirements were adhered to and the food as well as service outstanding.An excellent venue for special occasions when a private room is needed.Alternatively, the downstairs retaurant is also excellent.

I did enjoy my meal and it was cooked very well but I felt there were a lot of places I could have eaten this food for a considerably lower price. If money was no object I would eat here again defiantly. But for myself it was a bit to expensive.

We had Sunday lunch here with two friends. The welcome was pleasant and the service attentive but not intrusive. The menu gave us enough choices (see their website for a sample menu). The food quality was very good and helping size generous. The restaurant is fairly expensive.

Always look forward to going back to the Leconfield. Love the stylish design and welcoming atmosphere. Truly delicious food. One of my favourite restaurants in Sussex. It's spacious and comfortable, equally special on a winter day when you want to be cosy or in the summer for somewhere fresh and light - there's a lovely courtyard as well. Though it's... More

Just back from the Leconfield where we hired The Stag Room for a private family lunch to celebrate my fathers 80th Birthday. Right from the first contact to book the restaurant the Manager Richard Luna was extremely courteous and accommodating - nothing was too much trouble for him. We got there slightly early before the restaurant opened - no matter... More
