“Eat in traditional surroundings!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Not modernised, you get the traditional mill buildings, even with the sound of running water at the entrance. We found it by chance, when looking for a restaurant near the Bluebell Railway and couldn't have bettered the choice.
Very attentive staff, in both the bar area and a quieter restaurant area (even though it was Bank holiday Monday). Good choice on the menu, not too pricey, excellent food and tastefully presented. My sweet didn't tick all the boxes, though it wasn't bad; I just felt the flavours didn't go together- bailey's cheesecake with a flavoured icecream.
Ideal setting, perfect after a day out at either The Bluebell Railway or Standon, National Trust.

“Long walk but worth in”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Went for Sunday Lunch with our daughter having booked online with Top Table booking service . Booking worked well with reminder day before . Food very good , favorite Harveys Beer and attentive staff. Really attractive building now with covered outside area which can be used by smokers.Decided to walk off dinner by trudging home in zero degrees for 2.5 miles ... should have stayed for brandy and taxi !! Many years ago this was one of the Worst pubs in East Grinstead but now run in a very professional manner

“Buisness Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

I had a long buisness lunch meeting that went well into the afternoon, all lunch time visitors had left but the staff were courtious and attentive throughout but remained at a comfortable distance for the duration of the meeting, one of the staff was even kind enough to witness the documents for us.
So thankyou Dunnings.

“Excellent Pub/Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

I went to lunch here with my husband, purely by accident as we'd got ourselves lost, and were glad we had, not only was the food fantastic, the staff were friendly and very welcoming, the pub is full of atmosphere, has a lovely brick built fireplace with a roaring fire, just what you want on a miserable day, especially when you're lost!! after a brilliant meal with new found friends, they gave us directions to put us back on the road home, and yes we will be going again!
