Restaurant description

An elegant 19th century colonial-style country house with stunning hotel rooms, restaurant, lounge and terrace areas, Wingrove House is set in the beautiful and historic East Sussex village of Alfriston. Offering modern British cuisine, the restaurant has a bright and spacious feel with beautiful views over to the village church on the Tye.

Wingrove House serves traditional Sunday lunches and stunningly presented dinners created by a team led by the highly experienced Executive Chef Mathew Comben. Enjoy delectable dishes like braised venison in Longman ale, pan fried of seabass with curried crab or wild mushroom with winter vegetable pie, all made with fresh, seasonal ingredients sourced from Sussex’s finest producers.

The tempting selection of desserts includes warm ginger sponge with rum toffee sauce and rich chocolate delice with passion fruit sorbet. For an overnight or weekend stay, Wingrove House offers excellent accommodation.

Wingrove House Alfriston is a great starting point for picturesque walks and meandering cycle rides through the East Sussex countryside. It is easily accessible from the A27 and is a 9-minute drive from Polegate and Seaford Rail Stations.

    Over priced Sunday lunch was underwhelming. Nice location and good service.

    Beautiful location, tentative and friendly staff. Been a handful of times and each time has been a great experience.

    There was a good range of dishes on the menu and that was why I booked. Although the evening was slightly cool after a hot day, we sat outside under a heater and were very comfortable. I couldn't fault the service. The waitresses were all friendly, attentive and professional. The food was well prepared and very tasty and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

    We came for dinner on Friday evening as a birthday treat for my boyfriend. The food was wonderful but we were very disappointed when our main courses came to the table as we had literally just finished the last mouthful of the starter. Our table should have been cleared before the mains arrived. We enjoyed the food but when you pay over £100 for the meal you do expect the service to be better.
