Ethos
At The Leconfield we aim to to cook the very best ingredients simply, to let the natural quality and flavours shine through.

Every effort has gone into creating an informal yet smart and inviting dining space that's flexible to your needs, whether it's a light lunch in the courtyard, an a la carte dinner or a private party in the evening.

The heart and soul of The Leconfield is our beautiful restaurant. Comfy Chesterfields and armchairs, roaring fires and warm welcomes greet you as you enter the door. In the renovation of this historical building every effort was made to retain key features and all the charm. And that's very much the approach we take in terms of our offering.

Our aim is to maintain our great reputation - based on excellent service, quality, innovation and value.

Our food
At The Leconfield our menus are the heart of what we do. Every effort is made to source seasonal local produce of the highest quality.

Our food showcases the best of great fish caught off the South coast and wonderful, tender, flavoursome meats reared in the surrounding countryside. Dishes are Modern British (though we call it Sussex) with a touch of the Continent and beyond.

We have a selection of menus including our renowned Sunday Roasts - ranked in the Top 30 places to go for a Sunday Roast in the UK by The Times.

We can cater for most dietary needs, so do let us know when you make your booking.
