This “pleasantly traditional and old-fashioned restaurant” “has been a favourite for years” – and is these days “serving a more modern style of food” without losing any of its attractions. It was chef-patron Paul Webbe’s first opening more than 25 years ago, and has been followed by his fish specialist venues in Hastings and Rye.

Paul Webbe’s “well-established rural restaurant” celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, and is a “destination venue well worth travelling to” for its “wide but manageable choice of dishes and exceptionally good-value dining”. Paul also has fish-focused restaurants in Hastings and Rye, but this more land-based venture was his first, and by many accounts, remains his best.

“Love this place” – Paul Webbe’s country farmhouse restaurant, fast approaching its 25th anniversary, wins plaudits for providing “quality food in a lovely, friendly setting”. Notably “reasonable prices” are a big part of the attraction, especially for lunches both during the week and on Sundays. Webbe’s other restaurants, in Hastings and Rye, are more fish-focused, but he was a big fan of foraging inland before it became fashionable.

“Paul Webbe’s original venture – a pleasant country restaurant – is starting to feel a little old-school”, but absolutely no one seems to mind, given the “superb, fantastic value for money” food (“less fish-based than his other venues”, and “including beautifully cooked foraged produce”). The set lunch, with an unusually wide array of dishes, is a particular hit.

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
