    We booked Sunday lunch was visiting my sister. The staff and the food were excellent and we would certainly not hesitate to book again when we are in the area again. Very easy to book online.

    A lovely evening - spacious tables with ambient lighting creates a relaxed atmosphere. Comfortable chairs too. Good menu to select from. We were not greeted when we arrived and had to catch a member of the team to order drinks etc

    We have dined at the Wingrove on many occasions and have always been very pleased however the lunch we had recently was not up to the usual standard and was disappointing. The quality of the food was not great and the larger bites menu was limited. Staff however were very friendly and accommodating.

    The service has improved no end, back to how it used to be. The food was ok, the steak was disappointing, a cheaper cut, much preferred the sirloin. Overall though we'd totally come back, which we wouldn't have said a year ago.. definitely more expensive and food not as good as rathfinney, but we had a good night and the staff were much more attentive than our last visits.

    Food was very good. We only had 2 courses as the bread and oil beforehand was enough whilst we waited for the main course. We had fish and pork which was excellent. Wine was rather plonked ready opened in a cooler on the table. The wine had no cork so may be it does not need to be looked at first. We have stayed at this hotel many times under the previous management. We came here specially for 80th b/day dinner last August - 6 of us. We stayed at another hotel with a pool - excellent for the grandchild particularly and us of course. We come for Glyndebourne and the 7 sisters walking and the pretty Alfriston village. We love it all. We still like your hotel very much.
