Good Hotel Guide Review
The accolades continue as Clive James and David Stott celebrate their 30th year at their well-liked restaurant-with-rooms – ‘a very special place’ – at the foot of the South Downs national park. ‘All the things we liked were still there,’ says a returning guest this year. ‘The gardens are in good shape, and the gazebos are enticing.’ In this ‘cheerful, meticulously informal’ place, ‘eating in the restaurant is a treat’. Served in the intimate dining room, David Stott’s ‘excellent dinners’ make good use of local meat and game, plus a ‘catch of the day’ from Hastings. A typical dish: roast rack of lamb, port and redcurrant sauce. ‘Comfortable and sparkling clean’ bedrooms, each with a newly upgraded shower or bathroom, are individually decorated, with ‘well-judged details’: fresh milk in the fridge; earplugs (‘though we never needed them’) to counter the ‘discreet hum’ from the road close by. Guests heading to nearby Glyndebourne are well taken care of: ‘Clive and David have a finely tuned awareness of the timetable of an evening at the opera, and prepared a cold bag for us at short notice.’ (CM, Richard Parish)
