Description: We look forward to welcoming you to the Dining Room at Deans Place, our newly refurbished restaurant. Our menus change monthly along with daily chef's recommendations so that we can offer the best of Sussex's wealth of local produce wherever possible. During the week, we have our more casual food offering with our Terrace & Bar menu, which is available from midday until 9:30pm. At the weekends, lunch is served in The Dining Room on Saturdays and Sundays from 12:30pm and last orders are at 3pm. Our traditional Sunday Lunches are extremely popular and are available in both The Dining Room and in the Terrace & Bar. The Dining Room is open every night for dinner from 6:30pm and last orders are taken at 9:30pm. Non residents are always welcome. All menus found on our site should be treated as sample menus. If you are interested in knowing the current month's menu, or would like to discuss dietary needs, please do not hesitate to contact the hotel. We do reserve the right to make amendments to any of our menus at any given time, however, they will always be in keeping with the style and quality that we are known for.

“Beautiful setting, lovely food!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

The setting of this venue is lovely and the food was to die for. I had the fish and chips and my husband had the duck and both meals were cooked to perfection. Staff are extremely polite and very attentive. Will definitely go back.

“Just Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

I have lived near this village for decades and for some unaccountable reason never went to Deans Place. Then, scratching my head for somewhere to go with friends for lunch on a Monday we tried it. I have since been four times two lunches and two evenings ( both Monday's ) and every time have thoroughly enjoyed my experience there. Lunch on a Monday you don't really expect much to be honest but what a best kept secret this must be. If Monday is Chef's day off as is tradition it doesn’t show, everything was perfect, an immaculate dining room wonderful attentive staff and great food. The same in the evenings. Megan in the bar is delightful and well travelled interesting company and Louis in the restaurant is fast becoming one of my favourite waiters and apart from the food it is staff that draws me back to an establishment. Thank you Dean's Place.
