Wow! This place was an absolute gem of a find. Food was some of the best I've eaten in a very long time. Lovely menu and lovely restaurant and staff very helpful and attentive. We sat in courtyard for lunch which was a little oasis. Loved it and can't wait to return

I really enjoyed my lunch at the Leconfield, I opted for the Friday set menu and wasn't disappointed. The presentation was 5 star and I was impressed by everything; the service and food were excellent. I will be back!

We had a super evening here and it would have been a perfect 5 were it not for a few (very) minor grumbles! As it was a lovely evening we started in the lovely walled courtyard with champagne & cocktails whilst perusing the menus. We decided on the tasting menu and were taken to our table to eat. The canapes... More

The staff were absolutely amazing! They made us all feel very much at home and knew everything about the food on the menu. Their knowledge of wine to compliment the food was appreciated too. The food was beautifully presented and the tastes and textures mind blowing! This Chef really knows how to cook! We'll be back given a chance. Murray... More

We are regulars at the Leconfield and so happy that Petworth has such a class act. The food is always great here and the chefs are clever and inventive but what makes the Leconfield so very special for us is its staff. They are highly professional but also funny and friendly and always make us feel like we are the... More

Having read the reviews, invited friends for lunch on Sunday. Perhaps Sunday is not a good day to choose as menu is very limited, concentrating on traditional fare rather than an interesting and varied menu. Staff are very nice and welcoming but was surprised that restaurant was practically empty inside although courtyard was full. Decor is minimalist so the emptiness... More

Decided to stop here after a stroll around Petworth Park and was incredibly impressed. We chose to sit in the wonderfully presented courtyard garden and eat from the 'Market Menu' which was delicious. The chef's canapes and bread and butter was a lovely introduction to trout and ravioli starters that followed. We chose the the Sussex beef and salmon with... More

We went for lunch at short notice. Lovely staff, good wine list (with interesting range by the glass) and perfectly executed food. A brilliant, delicate steak tartare to start and sea bream to follow.

My husband and I had dinner here on a Friday night. As this was our first visit, we booked in advance but it looked like it would have been possible to get a table on the night. The restaurant meanders through a few rooms so it didn't feel large. There is an outside walled garden with tables but it was... More
