I visited the Camellia for the first time for lunch although I had been to South Lodge previously for Afternoon tea. The first surprise was on being served pre lunch drinks as I assumed this being an upmarket hotel that our drinks would be served with nibbles such as nuts and olives, however there was nothing to accompany them at...

Walked in and thought of a stuffy golf club. The staff were welcoming and attentive and gave you time and space. The meal ... Holy cow: Unbelievable. Best I have had for years. Go, try and let the world know. Go back and do it all again... (the decor is old... but who cares...).

it's a lovely room, and the service is enthusiastic if a little amateur. It's the sort of place your well-travelled maiden aunt would be impressed by. The food is not particularly imaginative, but it's very well executed.

The set lunch at the Camellia is a good deal but I would certainly not count it as value for money on the a la carte. We had a pleasant lunch here, nice surroundings, beautiful views and I would not say "don't go there" as it was a pleasant experience, but only as a one off. My duck starter was... More

we were brought a £75 voucher for the Camellia Restaurant as a wedding present, and we are so happy with our experience. We were welcomed and asked to sit in a relaxing lounge where we had a drink and some bar snacks. When looking at the menu the staff were extremely helpful and we were recommended a wine to go...

Beautiful surroundings. Located within the South Lodge Hotel in Sussex. Great service. You are made to feel special by highly attentive staff. Great food. Excellent choice of well presented dishes. Nothing to dislike

We really enjoyed our evening in the Camellia Restaurant; nice food, nice wine, nice surroundings. All courses very very tasty. Definately worth a go if you're staying there.

Very disappointing standard of food served . Barely warm and flavourless . All having a different choice from the ala carte menu can't believe the chef won master chef! Very expensive for what was served . We won't be back !

Dear Andrew G, I am sorry your visit to The Camellia was a disappointment. Although it is pleasing to read that many aspects of your visit were a success such as the welcome as well as certain dishes it is a pity we did not reach your expectations in other areas. Sadly, we have not received your feedback. It goes... More

We visited the Camillia restaurant for our wedding anniversary to try the well published food. Our experience was very disappointing primerily because of the very poor service, the whole four course meal took ONE hour. The cost of the meal for two was £146 for a one hour experience. The food although very good had very small portions so we... More
