In a majestic site dating back to 1883, The Camellia Restaurant offers 2 AA Rosette-adorned British cuisine. A plush Victorian-inspired dining room features gilded mirrors, flamboyant wall coverings and rich mahogany wall panelling.

Sourcing vegetables from the walled kitchen garden and championing fine Sussex-reared meats, the Camellia menu showcases creative, seasonal dishes. Delicately-crafted and ambitious, Camellia Restaurant favourites include prawn ravioli with coconut and pak choi, or loin of South Lode venison with broad beans and garlic. For dessert, refined indulgences include pear financier with chocolate and cardamom ice cream, or strawberry parfait with clotted cream.

Hand-picked by the resident sommelier, The Camellia Restaurant wine list features over 300 wines, all of which are displayed in the restored cellar. Guests are encouraged to browse the cellar, and there is ample knowledge on hand for recommending a complementing wine. For post-lunch indulgence, enjoy the South Lodge afternoon tea, served in idyllic surroundings.

During summer, guests can enjoy views of the Sussex countryside on the outdoor patio at The Camellia Restaurant in Horsham. Central Horsham is an 8-minute drive away.

    Fabulous views over terrace and garden if you get a table by window, as we did.
    We had duck and quinea fowl dishes which were really good, amazing sauces.
    Our dessert of passion fruit mousse and sorbet was our favourite .Richard Mann , the chef there can clearly cook and produces dishes you want to eat again and again. Service getting better, but lacks that extra attention to detail.

    Lovely environment and helpful young staff. Good value lunch menu but wine list vastly overpriced

    Enjoyed a fantastic afternoon tea. Everything was fresh and exquisite. The most notable part of the afternoon was the exceptional staff. All young girls but well spoken, courteous and friendly. We finished our afternoon with drinks on the terrace overlooking the Downs; a wonderful experience for a perfect birthday treat!

    We had a problem ordering more scones. We asked various different people 3 and still no arrival of said scone. We then asked head waiter after 30 mins wait and it finally arrived. The final cake selection was a little odd and disappointing and uninteresting.

    Superb service and an outstanding afternoon tea, thought initially it was expensive but it ended up being worth every penny. Would definitely recommend this for that special occasion.
    Only problem we had was with the reservation, I booked on line for three and when we arrived they had set up for two, but the staff handled it very well and it didn't spoil the afternoon

    Afternoon tea for my Mum's 80th. My mum thoroughly enjoyed herself but we were slightly disappointed. We didn't feel it was worth the price we paid. We informed at the beginning that we could have more food if we wanted it but unfortunately there were no staff around to ask for it. We eventually asked for a few more sandwiches and they eventually came once we had already had our scones. We have been to an afternoon tea before in one of the London hotels and this isn't a patch on the London experience and isn't much cheaper. I would suggest that they look at changing the little cakes as looking round the room not many people were eating them as they weren't anything special. The scones and sandwiches were lovely though and the tea was nice. Basically the staff need to be more attentive - probably the problem is they don't have enough staff.
