Hidden Gem

We visited The Hurstwood for the first time on 19/08/2011 absolutely certain that such a local pub/restaurant couldnâ??t possibly be as good as the previous reviewers state and we were sure that our highly critical French guest would be very hard to please! What a very pleasant surprise. The staff are attentive and friendly and the food was excellent (no cold plates here). Firstly, we were surprised to receive, free of charge, really good fresh foccacia with dipping oil while we were waiting. For starters we chose scallops, potted shrimps and stuffed tempura courgette flowers which were wonderful. For main course, two guests chose the duck (cooked to perfection apparently), one had the moules with frites (fab) and one had the courgette and feta tart. All that was left at the end of the meal was a pile of mussel shells! We are full of praise for The Hurstwood and would certainly recommend that you should give it a try.

I know of no better place to eat anywhere in East Sussex
  10 / 10
Food is truly superb, service wonderful and ambience quietly welcoming. I know of no better place to eat anywhere in East Sussex. My (our) only niggle is that the Hurstwood just does not seem to be able to get its head around the concept of â??hot platesâ??. My wifeâ??s otherwise flawless, tender, beautifully prepared and wondrously flavourful steak was served stone cold on a stone cold plate. Everyone was terribly apologetic and we were offered free puddings (the cheesecake is to die for, free or not). The next time, with friends, we specifically requested hot plates and hot food for our Sunday roast lamb. The lamb arrived beautifully presented, cooked to perfection, shaved delicate slices, lightly pink, meltingly tender, mouth-watering flavours â?? but, although not actually cold, it was no more than lukewarm on plates that were only just above room temperature. Again, grovelling apologies and this time free coffees and tea all round. Despite this niggle, weâ??d all still happily go back again and again, because the food really is gorgeous, the service really is outstanding, and the atmosphere is just what a top-class village gastronomic pub should be. Understandably, under its new management, the Hurstwood has quickly become very, very popular, and you will need to book well in advance.

Super meal, super service!
  10 / 10
As a group of three girlfriends we have high standards which were amply met at High Hurstwood. Superb service and our three-course meal was wonderful. Everything was beautifully presented,tasted and looked fabulous. It is clear that each course is carefully thought through and planned by a loving chef who enjoys his/her job and takes pride in what comes out of their kitchen. Would go back there as often as I could if I lived nearby. Highly recommended.

Our first and dessert courses were excellent. However, the main course served at a very busy time was cold and disappointingly presented
