A superb hotel restaurant in the idyllic West Sussex countryside, the Restaurant at Ockenden Manor presents the uppermost echelon of British dining. In a grand, history-steeped setting tracing back to the 16th century, the dining space looks out over the beautiful South Downs National Park.

Fine dining on the Ockenden Manor Restaurant menu progresses from velvety Balcombe game terrine, with pear, endive and walnuts, to tender oxtail with boudin blanc, mashed potatoes and truffled savoy cabbage. Loche Duart salmon is served with squid, cockles, mussels, sweetcorn, leeks and chowder, while the cox apple mille-feuille is an elegant dessert with white chocolate and vanilla cream, and quince sorbet.

A spectacular 7-course tasting menu also features at the Ockenden Manor Restaurant in Cuckfield, complemented by an exquisite selection of wines. The interior is a cultured space of dark wood panelling, shimmering golden decorations and rustic stone fireplaces.

Restaurant at Ockenden Manor is in the idyllic village of Cuckfield, a 6-minute drive from Haywards Heath Station.

Beautiful sunny day lovely gardens.Waiters all excellent very polite helpful and attentive with sense of humour. We were treated so well.

    I went for afternoon tea with two members of my family. We were greeted and led to our table. We ordered our tea and before it arrived we were offered a little extra, the chef's version of strawberries and cream. So far so good. Our order duly arrived but the waiter forgot the milk for our tea. We thought he had gone to fetch it but he did not reappear. It soon became apparent was no one looking after the 3 tables in the room so we had to go and find someone to bring the milk and hot water to fill up the tea pot for us and another table. Somebody from the third table seemed to be constantly getting up to find someone to serve them. At no stage we were asked whether everything was all right and if there was anything else we wanted. To sum up, the food was delicious but the service was wanting.

    Simply brilliant, the 2 serving staff were courteous and efficient, the afternoon tea very tasty and the selection of teas was also excellent. There are lovely gardens with sunny/shady seating areas most affording views of the Downs.
    When driving into Cuckfield from the south, one may miss the Ockenden Manor sign as it is obscured by a rather large hedge. June 2106

    we have been here 4 times for afternoon tea, and the food and service are always very good, however for a value for money it seems to have gone down as the sandwiches seem to get less.

    Afternoon tea quality food and lovely venue. Staff were excellent especially the lovely French waitress (didn't catch her name) who looked after us, was polite and professional and made us feel valued as customers.

    Afternoon tea on Mother's Day. Perfect! The staff are a real credit. Nothing was too much trouble.

    A very pleasing afternoon tea in salubrious surrounding with attentive staff although the reception desk appeared to be slightly undermanned when more than one set of guests required a service.
