“Chestnuts revisited!”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

A really delightful, homely, Sussex tea-room serving tasty meals, and lovely cakes. The hosts provide a pleasant, welcoming atmosphere. There is something on the menu to suit all tastes and the prices are very reasonable. We are looking forward to our next visit!

“Best place to stay in Alfriston”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

We had a wonderful stay at Chestnuts, the host (Jane) was welcoming and provided top service. the rooms were well priced compared to hotels in the area and were quaintly decorated with all amenities included i.e. hair dryer. As we arrived early we went for lunch in the tea room (attached next door) and enjoyed a really tasty, hearty, homemade lunch followed by a traditional cream tea (with extra cream). Overall Chestnuts has a great atmosphere and the staff were very attentive we have already booked another visit with the original couple that recommended Chestnuts to us. 10/10 you will not be disappointed.

“Snails' pace service”
Reviewed August 20, 2011

Went to this tea room for a sandwich lunch. I was one of a party of 14 - the tea room had been booked weeks earlier. My table of five waited for 45 minutes for our simple sandwiches - and then four of us had finished our lunch before the fifth person's arrived. We were asked for £28 instead of the £20 that the bill should have been. No apology offered for the slow (shambolic) service. Shan't be returning, even though the sandwich was quite tasty.
