Restaurant description

The Michelin-starred Restaurant Interlude in Horsham serves British cuisine led by Jean Delport and acclaimed South African chefs. In a grand manor house overlooking 200 acres of the luscious Leonardslee Lakes and Gardens, the restaurant demonstrates unique plating with a tasting menu inspired by its own kitchen garden, local farmers and surroundings.

On the Restaurant Interlude menu, find ingredients from the gardens served in bulbous tumblers, mossy gardens or on stones, like the palate-cleansing meadowsweet and ginger beer pebble. Dishes pay homage to its chefs' South African connections with a mushroom and deer biltong taster.

Enjoy Restaurant Interlude’s ribbons of pumpkin pasta with pine mousse, while for dessert, try the sheep's milk sorbet with a delicate chocolate leaf. The interior’s luxurious patterned wallpaper and chandeliers over white-clothed tables, showcase the West Sussex restaurant’s fine dining style in the intimate drawing room.

The whimsical and unusual dining venture on an estate in Sussex serves tasting menus influenced by nature around them. Found in Leonardslee Lakes and Gardens, Restaurant Interlude near Brighton is under 30 minutes from Horsham Station.

    The setting was beautiful and tranquil. The food was presented immaculately and in perfect sized portions. The scones were the softest and fluffiest ive ever tasted. The fillings in the mini buns were unbelievably tasty. The mini desserts at the end had to be the best. They were delicious and so beautiful. The waitress was very attentive, informative and friendly. This was by far the best afternoon tea i have ever experienced.

    This was a treat for my sister's 60th birthday and it was lovely. The food, service, setting all faultless. My only criticism would be the lack of indian teas, ie Assam, fuller flavour teas.

    We had afternoon tea and whilst the food was enjoyable it was not as good or value for money as others we have experienced at similar restaurants.

    A brilliant place for Afternoon Tea. Attentive, but not intrusive, knowledgeable staff who explained each dish and made you feel special. The best Afternoon Tea I have had. Food was delicious and providing a box to take home what you cannot finish is a lovely touch. Our table was by the french doors leading on to the terrace giving wonderful views of the garden. Having piano music playing in the background was very relaxing.
