At the Findon Manor Country House Hotel - the Head Chef, David Eaton is just waiting to be discovered. He is making superb food in the Terrace Restaurant of this gem of a hotel, set in the beautiful South Downs National Park in the village of Findon, near Worthing, Sussex.
We booked into a Superior ensuite on the Ground Floor overlooking the garden. The room was warm and inviting, with an unexpected Easter Egg gift on the kingsize bed to welcome us to our weekend.
Having stayed at Findon Manor three years ago, we learned that it is now under new ownership and Debbie has obviously started on a focussed venture of refurbishment (the Hotel was a little tired and in need of it). A real fire burned brightly in the hearth, and the warmth of the Curt, Assistant Manager and the staff team soothed the biting cold and wind outside. We ate some fantastic food over the two days we stayed - locally sourced lamb and pork from Dragons Farm, beautifully presented with appropriate, interesting vegetable accompaniments and preceeded by wonderful starters of scallops with grilled black pudding, or an interesting layered vegetable cheesecake, or potted leg of duck with homemade toasted brioche ....... (I hope they get this menu onto the website, so you can all enjoy reading it!). The hotel, an easy drive to the sea, also has several pubs nearby, plus their own more casual, Snooty Fox bar and there are many attractions to seek out, not the least of which is Cissbury Ring and the South Downs. The room price included breakfast and the stay was extremely good value overall. Discover it for yourself - oh, and they do weddings, and all special occasions, at very good rates too. One to watch!
