I have been to this restaurant several times and with each visit comes a wow effect! The service is just amazing! From the Starters, main to the dessert, everything is just amazing!!! Price is also very reasonable.

Set in 38 acres of idyllic gardens and woodland, The Conservatory restaurant at the Bannatyne Hotel is a tranquil dining haven in Hastings. Overlooking the colourful flowerbeds and manicured lawns of the formal gardens, the restaurant incorporates local, seasonal produce in refined British cuisine.

The Conservatory menu excites with cured five-spice Margery duck breast served with pan-fried foie gras and a rhubarb and apple puree, which features alongside a roast loin of Ashdown forest venison with dauphinoise potato and braised red cabbage in a red wine jus. Chic, monochrome tables at The Conservatory are soaked in sunlight and decorated with potted plants for a wholesome, natural ambience.

Accompanying The Conservatory restaurant is a colourful terrace bar, which serves full afternoon tea with freshly-made sandwiches and homemade scones. Decorated with vivid colours and eye-catching modern art, it opens out onto al fresco dining.

It’s roughly a 10-minute drive down from the Bannatyne Hotel to Hastings Station, with Hastings Castle just a minute or so further. The Bannatyne Hotel is part of a chain from Dragon’s Den magnate, Duncan Bannatyne.

    Our experience was as expected from previous visits to Maxine's. Good service, good food and particularly welcome the dining area was nice and warm on a cold night. One of our party had not seen the garden area in daylight, but we liked the way the outside lighting had been set up to give a hint that the gardens maybe worth seeing at another time.

    The whole experience was perfect. Your staff was very polite and tentative. The food was fresh and very tasty. The ambience was pleasant and calming.

    I found your staff to be very attentive but not annoyingly so. Nothing was to much trouble and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience with you. One of my freinds had never had afternoon tea before so i was very pleased i had chosen to book with you.

    A fabulous restaurant, cannot understand why is was not busy, apart from weddings!!!! The setting is quite breathtaking, and the service impeccable. The food was good too and they did a lovely roast beef dinner though it appeared it was a special for the Sunday rather than a regular? I had the vegetarian dish which was very good but so filling I was not quite able to finish it! Again I have to mention the ambience of the conservatory whicgh was wonderful. The bar and everything was also good and we sat outside in the beautiful gardens and terraces before and after.

    Not a great selection for the money, afternoon tea consisted of tea, a few dry cakes and a couple of finger sandwiches but not much choice. Not worth the £37 I paid and not a very comfortable setting in the bar area. Could have been a lot better. On a plus, bar staff were very polite and attentive

    Had tea with a family member ,we were in the conservatory it was a lovely setting the cakes and sandwiches we're very fresh ,the only thing that I could fault would be to have China teapots instead of stainless steal.
