Excellent evening

This was our first visit and we were very impressed. Not cheap, but good value for the delicious food and attentive service. The generous quantity of different kinds of bread which accompanied the meal deserves a mention. Highly recommended.

I took my mother out for her birthday after reading good reviews about this place. Old and dated charm inside but the food was just ok I would not rush back party of 4 starters and mains and we all said the Same ok but not brilliant best thing was the bread top marks for that.

The Chardonnay is one of the best restaurant's in Sussex and maybe beyond, have eaten here a few times before and it never disappoints, 5 star food for 2 star prices ! The set menu is just £15.50 for 3 courses and you get a chefs treat, home made bread all included plus home made chocolates with your coffee

I had almost given up finding a restaurant where I could get a meal in a lovely atmosphere that was actually delicious. This restaurant is that one! From the minute we arrived we were made to feel very welcome. The host was attentive and the nibbles while we waited in the bar were fresh and tasty. We were then shown... More

We have dined here before and have been looking forward to returning, and we weren't disappointed. We had the £15.50 menu which is such fantastic value, and yet again the food could not be faulted throughout the evening. The friendliness of the staff and service was great, we will definitely be returning...

They really know how to pamper to the customer. A cosy reception area for pre-meal drinks and nibbles, and then you are shown to a tastefully prepared table of spotless linen, silver and glassware. The bread basket 'is to die for' and what you don't eat, you can take away with you! The fixed price menu is comprehensive and extremely... More

Does not grab you from the outside - think A road and 80s-posh - but the chef genuinely knows his sauces, triple-cooked chips were just that, the wine list was inventive and fairly priced, and the fish was excellent. Definite French influence; have a look at the website and you will see where the kitchen pedigree comes from. We were... More

we chose to eat here because of its position, ease of parking and ambience. The food is always good and the service unobtrusive. We were a group of five ladies celebrating a birthday. we chose a mixture of foods from the set menu and a la carte and were all very satisfied with our selections. We would recommend this venue...

Visited with friends early evening. The set menu was good value and the quality was good except the summer pudding was bland. Two downsides, they do not serve draught beer and the coffee is appalling, having asked for three Americano we were served with a tasteless black liquid from a Thermos jug. Service was good and unobtrusive.
