One of the best afternoon teas

We visited as a family for my Dad's Birthday treat, having booked online. As it was a lovely day I had hoped to sit outside as I mentioned this when booking, but to be honest the room that you're served afternoon tea in is absolutely beautiful and was nice and cool on a very hot day. We did see... read more

Lovely tea and a wonderful setting. Not rushed, unlike another venue I have been to for afternoon tea! Allowed and encouraged to take home cakes not eaten at the tea! Only down side was that there was an event in the grounds and the staff in the car park twice tried to tell us we would be unable to have... More

We were dining with friends in the Camellia Restaurant. They were celebrating their wedding anniversary and I had called ahead to arrange a surprise bottle of bubbles to be served before dinner. On arrival we were offered drinks in the bar and i explained that something was arranged trying to keep it secret from our friends. 20 minutes later still... More

My family took me to the camellia restaurant for Father's Day. The food was very nice but the service was not at all professional or attentive. Without writing a book about the experience the upshot was that cutlery was not appropriate for the dishes served, sauces were not offered, the food was served in a hap hazard fashion and finally...

Wonderful surroundings with very attentive and pleasant staff. A menu although not extensive should satisfy all tastes and quality, presentation and quantity were first rate.

It is nearly 10 years since we lasted visited the Camellia Restaurant.....and it is still very enjoyable. The decor has changed little but the food has taken on a more modern twist but without going too far down that road - although the Hotel does now have another restaurant which is less "traditional" in its offerings. Staff are without exception... More

If you have afternoon tea here you will not be disappointed. This is the best around in sussex. The staff were welcoming and very attentive. They have a excellent choice of teas. This place is perfect for a treat and I can't wait to book my next visit so that I can have afternoon tea in the gardens.

A promotion ‘Treat a friend’ at the Camellia Restaurant seemed an ideal time to return to South Lodge after a number of years absence. Choose from a restricted menu and you are able to treat a fellow diner to two courses for £10, half the normal price of this particular set menu. Three courses are at the moment £24.95 which...

I hadn't been to South Lodge since spending the first night of our married life there 25 years ago, so it seemed like a good place to go for dinner on our silver wedding anniversary. As it turned out, we were the only people in the restaurant, apart from one other couple who had also spent the first night of... More
