Restaurant description

Inside the Hilton Avisford Park Hotel, Cedar Restaurant is a split-level venue serving traditional English cuisine. The graceful dining area is done up in plum and cream hues with chequered flooring, and well-spaced tables offer charming views over the hotel’s putting green.

Using fresh, locally sourced ingredients, Cedar’s kitchen team serves up freshly made soup of the day, rabbit terrine with plum-ginger chutney and grilled chicken strips. Seafood options include smoked haddock Welsh rarebit with sautéed spinach and potatoes, and sea bass fillet with spring onion mash, sautéed king prawns, asparagus and lemon butter sauce.

Hearty grilled dishes are served at the Cedar Restaurant in Arundel and children have a special menu too. Guests can also relax with a cup of coffee and pastries or sandwiches at the lounge terrace and bar area.

Nestled in the quiet village of Walberton, Cedar Restaurant on Yapton Lane is a 10-minute drive from the Arundel Castle.

    Very nice hotel and restaurant, the staff were so friendly, and always happy to help. Well worth the money for a party of six to have a lovely lunch.

    Lovely afternoon tea. Very good value for money and the food was really nice. Service was perfect despite a large wedding party there as well. Would definitely go back.

    We were sat around a lovely little table on comfortable chairs overlooking the gardens. The waiter took our tea and coffee order and then our drinks arrived soon after. We were served beautiful sandwiches 6 different types, 3 different types of cakes and a scone with jam and cream on a cake stand. My friend is gluten free she was brought out the same on her own cake stand, she was delighted as usually gluten free can mean second best! More tea was served when we asked. We stayed for just over 2 hrs . It was a lovely Christmas catch up treat with friends.

    Unfortunately, a disappointment. I had informed the restaurant on booking that I have coeliacs so require gluten-free dishes. The menu was labelled with 'lg' denoting 'low gluten' dishes, that the waitress clarified meant gluten-free, just not in a contaminant-free kitchen (the usual situation when dining out, but an unnerving labelling system). However, luckily I asked her to double check that the 'lg' starter I chose, Haddock Fish Cakes, was gluten-free as it seemed surprising. The response was the chef didn't know why it was labelled 'lg' as they were covered in breadcrumbs. A lucky escape. Any potato choice was severely limited by the fact the kitchen only had one fryer thus making chips and wedges out of the question as they were fried in the same oil as gluten-containing products. I find this surprising for a restaurant of this size that had 'gluten-free' labeling on the menu. The duck leg I chose as a main course was so overcooked a substantial part of the meat was inedible. The restaurant itself was shabby, with tatty looking veneer tables that could have been hidden by tablecloths that could have made them look classy, but weren't. It's a grand room with wooden panelling showing the names of the boys that had stayed in the school it had previously been from the 1920's to 1970's, but the ambience was spoiled by the awful pop music that was being played. We ordered a Merlot @ £23 for the bottle (this weekend was a huge treat for us, otherwise we wouldn't have contemplated spending money so stupidly). The waitress unscrewed the lid, poured out glasses, then screwed it back up again. Red wine. Need I say more? In addition, the restaurant was cold and cobwebby. Lovely staff, but tatty restaurant reminiscent of the 1970's hotels that killed off the UK tourism industry, with over-priced, over-cooked, wrongly-labelled food.

    Lovely room with nice views of the garden, great sandwiches and cakes, as much tea/coffee as you like.

    Very nice place, great service and small but tasty menu with a dish for most tastes. The food was cooked well and we had decent portions

    We used the cedar restaurant twice during our stay of three nights and were really pleased with the options in the menu, the presentation of the food and the food was really good. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. We were very impressed with our whole dining experience and did not feel rushed at any time as time was allowed between courses.
