Harden's says

Set in a converted 18th-century threshing barn on the Wiston wine estate between Horsham and Worthing in West Sussex, this relaunched restaurant features wines, meat and vegetable produced on the estate and cooking by highly rated chef Tom Kemble, who made waves in London at the Bonham's auction house in the years before covid.

“In a beautiful high-ceilinged barn-style building on the Wiston wine estate” – between Horsham and Worthing in West Sussex – this venue was relaunched in 2022, with a “wine list not confined to Wiston wines, although these feature heavily in the sparkling section”. Foodwise, it offers produce from the estate prepared by Tom Kemble, who made waves in London at the Bonham’s auction house in the years before Covid. “The menu provides three-four choices on each course – on a good day it can be very pleasant”. (You can also visit for breakfast, from 8.30 am on weekends).

"Well cooked and presented food, cod with cauliflower purée and pickled shavings of cauliflower with samphire was delicious. Service was off hand, unco-ordinated and inattentive from what was admittedly a young clearly inexperienced crew. It was a shame as it let down the very accomplished cooking. "
