The restaurant was quiet when we were there but the welcome was very warm and the staff were very friendly. Carvery as well as a traditional pub menu, the all day breakfast is excellent. Not expensive and worth a visit. Plenty of parking.

Popped in this evening (30/11/16) to meet a friend for a coffee.........and both had a carvery. Service and welcome from male member of staff was excellent and a credit to the establishment 10/10............. The food was most welcome and well cooked, all in all a good experience, well done all. Shame some of the other reviewers don't share my views,

I enjoyed food and the service was very good, I only gave it 4 as the outside needs a bit of a tidy up and its not made very clear where to enter and would they had coped if more customers had been there. Would revisit as I did enjoy the food.

Had a carvery here and it was revolting. Meat was dry. Sides were awful. Everything that can be wrong with a roast went wrong. Cauliflower cheese, what's the point, it tasted like water in yellow soup. Potatoes were the opposite of what they should be: soft on the outside, hard on the inside. Crackling for the pork was not even... More

Firstly we are sorry you didn't enjoy your visit. We have an excellent reputation for our food which is displayed on many media sites and find it a little strange that your experience was so bad having said that if you had voiced your grievances whilst you were visiting The Newmarket we could have acted on them and possibly offered...

Food (breakfast) very good, didn't have carvery as we were eating out but again looked good and value for money. Staff were friendly enough the bar/restaurant lacked atmosphere. The rooms were good but the decor looked tired.

So, we heard that the `Newmarket' was under new management...again! We thought we would drive out for an early dinner, midweek and fancied a roast. We used to be regulars here but it has had so mu]any ups and downs. We went in, full of anticipation, to no atmosphere at all. We opted for the Kingsize carvery after being told... More

Thank you for your feedback we are sorry your visit wasn't a good one.

Well, the food was okay, eventually. But it took about 30 minutes after seating to get our food ordered, and then after we had finished, almost an hour to have our plates cleared. Then a further 15 minutes to asked if we would like dessert. I commented on how long we had been waiting, and wasn't offered an apology, just... More

We are sorry your visit to The Newmarket wasn't an enjoyable one . This isn't an excuse but we were rather busy on the day you visited and the waiting time was a little longer than usual but with all due respect not as long as you have mentioned.

If you need a meal travelling past Brighton and don't want to go in to Brighton then this is a good option. (I couldn't think of another reason for driving here when you have pubs in Pyecombe and Rodmell close by) . They are basically a carvery and the food is reasonable, well priced and served by efficient friendly staff.... More
