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.

I made this booking for my daughter and her husband, as a treat for their wedding anniversary. They were married at Bannantynes wedding venue 5 years ago, I have booked this venue for the last four years. The last three years the booking has also included their daughter who is now two years old. They were also able to walk in the grounds which interested a very inquisitive two year old.They had a fabulous meal, the staff were very accommodating with their two year old. The food was fabulous and they had a great early evening meal.

In part good but some serious flaws, most of the vegetables tasted old/stale. I had a particularly nasty wedge of cabbage that was very yellow when it should’ve been green.

Great place to eat. Everything is fresh. We included our dietary requirements when booking and they had everything sorted out for us to a T. We did not have to remind them of anything. They all were charming and attentive. Beautiful views of the garden. 10/10 for us.

My husband and I stayed over night at the hotel. The food was faultless and there was a good choice of dishes. We sat by the window in the Conservatory, and had a fantastic view over the hotel's garden.
