Went there today for a Sunday brunch en route to Gatwick airport. Stunning location! Service was fantastic and Christopher, the manager, was ever so welcoming and helpful.

The owners are obviously laurel and hardy a great business and venue down the tubes. No Sunday roast unless you want it in a tent I would rather eat crackers at home.

This used to be a great place to go for a walk and stop in for a beer or something to eat, unpretentious, dog walkers, muddy boots, great fun. Now it's completely up itself, a sign asking you to remove muddy footware at the front...More

Had a relaxing afternoon with a friend in this luxurious but reasonable venue. Beautiful grounds, a great cup of tea and cheerful staff.

It's been a while since I've been to Stanmer but have visited over many years and my last visit was such a disappointment. It's become very overpriced, with a pretentious air of exclusivity, not the grand but relaxed and welcoming setting that appealed to all...More

Sorry, we only had the basic afternoon which was great value, but I would always recommend Prosecco for any celebration anyway, go for it!

We never actually stayed there, just booked a meal there for us & a group of friends, but they claimed they never got our booking & wouldn;t accommodate us. Bit of a shambles to be honest. I wouldn;t bother
