If you like a little bit of historic grandeur combined with delicious food and friendly staff this is the place for you. We've eaten here numerous times and it's always been lovely. The food is fantastic and the atmosphere really adds to the experience. The other great thing about this place is the setting. Smack bang in the middle of... More

We came here for the first time since the end of last summer and it seems that the new management have pretty much run it into the ground. Gone are the fantastic selection of drinks behind the bar, the smiling staff and the extensive food menu. Replaced by down right rudeness, 4 options on the food menu for Saturday lunchtime... More

Popped in post dog walk for a quick drink with 3 friends, went to the bar got served straight away and they said they'd bring the drinks over. 10 mins later still no sign of drinks so I went to enquiry and they said sorry they were on the way. Another 5 mins passed and still no sign of drinks... More

Upon arrival you drive down a road full of caravans and instantly consider your decision to visit. There is then a distinct lack of parking. We had a voucher given to us for Christmas and decided valentines would be a good time to use it. This was easy enough, booking via the telephone and paying an extra £20 to upgrade... More

I took my mother for afternoon tea in February on a cold, dreary day. It was lovely and warm inside Stanmer House and we sat in the large lobby by a nice warm radiator and in comfy chairs. The lack of a table cloth was a surprise but we were delighted when the food arrived, a three tier cake stand... More

hhhhmm nearly £20.00 for a veggie pasty, bowl of soup and two luke warm tiny spilled coffees.... this was from a snack menu as the kitchen appeared to be closed, and not forgetting the £2.80 service charge which i resent. Proud cabaret really do not seem to have got their act together regarding quality, value for money and service. i... More

Went for a late Sunday roast. Roast okay but over-priced for what they are. Had Eton Mess for desert and couldn't eat it as it was almost all cream. Slithers of strawberry and no meringue at all! Service slow and took 20 mins to get bill. Also states 12.5% service charge is mandatory and added to the bill which is... More

The family had bought us groupon vouchers for Jazz evening as a Christmas present. We were taken to our table, which was one of the best in the room right in front of the jazz trio Unfortunately the poor waiter couldn't get to the table behind us so we had to shuffle our table over slightly to make room I...
