Harden's survey result
“Just a delight” – set among 200 acres of landscaped gardens, Jeremy & Vera Ashpool’s “overwhelmingly popular venue” has been a “consistent favourite” for many years in a part of Sussex with “little competition”. The food is “of a high standard, with an occasional nod to grande cuisine”, and “relatively good value”, while “the terraced area is particularly pretty on a summer’s evening”. Be warned, though, it can be “busy with wedding receptions”.
“A long-standing favourite that’s always a joy” – Jeremy & Vera Ashpool’s popular venue has a particularly “delightful” atmosphere, thanks to its “elegant” (although sometimes “packed”) interior, and most especially due to its location in gorgeous Borde Hill Garden (200 acres of famous landscaped grounds). Service is “lovely and attentive” and the “imaginative menus are excellently delivered” and at “good value” prices.
“Dining on the terrace is something to look forward to” when the sun is shining at Jeremy and Vera Ashpool’s “charming” and very well-known venture, in the “lovely” heart of Borde Hill Garden (200 acres of famous landscape gardens). “A favourite over many years”, it continues to win consistent praise for its “excellent” cuisine (some of “the best in Sussex”) and “friendly” style.
“Jeremy and his team have certainly not lost their touch”, say fans of his “delightful dining room” – “a longtime favourite” that’s “even better on the sun terrace overlooking the garden when weather permits”. It again inspires one or two accusations of “living on past glories”, but most reports say it’s “excellent in all respects”.
