Fodor's Expert Review Sundial
A 17th-century brick farmhouse with wood-beamed ceilings and lovely views of the South Downs is home to an excellent modern French restaurant. Situated near the castle in Herstmonceux, it features an imaginative three-course "Gourmet Menu" (£48 per person) that changes regularly but may include pan-fried wild turbot with truffle butter or beef fillet steak with a sauce of port and shallot. Courses can also be ordered separately, with mains priced at £25.
