Totally amazing experience. To have food served that is 98 grown or reared on the land. The chef’s care and attention is second to none.
My sister and I enjoyed our afternoon tea very much. It was my birthday present to her as she celebrates her 80th birthday this weekend.
The atmosphere was great and the food delicious. It was a pity that we did not have much time t o look around the gardens as there had been an accident on our route which.meant taking a detour.
A beautiful restaurant with spectacular views and the food was excellent.
The waitress were friendly and knowledgable they made ever effort to make our afternoon tea perfect as I am lactose intolerant.
On a very hot day the afternoon tea was in a lovely location. We very much liked the choice between classic and savoury. Staff were excellent.
On arriving at the Interlude restaurant, we were greeted by a beautiful water display. Once inside there was soft music being played on the piano. The main room where our afternoon tea was served was beautiful - well lit with chandeliers. The tables had white linen on with their very own crockery of white with a pink rose design. The menus were presented in a white book design. We chose the classic tea menu with us all having speedy breakfast which was lovely. The stand of sandwiches, savouries & warm scones arrived. The bread was so fresh and each one had a delicious flavour & generous fillings. The savouries all complimented each other well. The scones were warm and fluffy, one fruit & one plain with lemon curd, jam and clotted cream. After that we were treated to a beautiful selection of sweets on a glass plate, which sat upon a ring of wood. All sweets were amazing - but our favourite was the apple crumble pastry. Once we’d fought our way through it all we were then offered some cake to take home - which were delicious. Fantastic afternoon and am sure we’ll return soon - well done & thank you.
Superb relaxed food theatre, starting with an beautiful uncomplex gin on the terrace over looking the gardens. Choosing the shorter 14 course menu, perfect for a summers evening, our first course was a tree festooned with popcorn light chicken skin. Every dish had a touch of the gardens and was accompanied by a card detailing the source and location in the gardens. The menu comes as a complete surprise and the surprise was that for a fussy eater like me, I loved it all! Standout dishes - pickled pumpkin and goats cheese, belly pork barbecue and a delightful apricot sheep’s milk and real honeycomb treat. Each dish perfection, entertaining and educating
Easy journey from Brighton and parking. Friendly welcome and attentive waiting staff. Beautiful dining room overlooking the gardens. Worth upgrading to the savoury afternoon tea to swop the sandwiches for something more substantial especially if having at lunchtime. Delicious select of unlimited teas, scones are very good and cakes nice. Nice touch to have cake from the trolley to takeaway. We enjoyed a lovely walk around the gardens afternoon in the sunshine.
Only negative was service charge being added to the bill which I would have preferred to been given the choice whether to reward the excellent staff myself and feel that the money had gone straight to them.
