I don't know how this place does it. This is my seventh visit over many years, and each time they have created an outstanding and highly memorable lunch at an astonishingly low price for the value they maintain.

Not that I want them to put up their prices, you understand, but these are experiences worth a lot more than they are charging for them. The quality and creativity of the food, the unassuming but highly professional and attentive service, the excellence of the presentation - these are all worthy of a far grander establishment. In fact, they considerably exceed the worth of many such establishments I've visited.

Yet it's all managed quietly and unpretentiously, making the place perfect for any occasion from a date, through a family treat, to a special celebration, with no risk of foodie fear or condescending treatment.

I thank all the staff, including the unseen stars of the kitchen, for yet another occasion to treasure - long may they continue at this level.

Celebrated 70th birthday with wife, sister and four special friends. Lovely meal, atmosphere, ambience, service, wine and value for money. One little complaint, menu designed around meat available at this time of year mainly game, could do with a lighter meat option available such as chicken. Overall very good. Well done to all the staff.

Sunday lunch was perfect. Only complaint was that there were only two of us seated next to a very jolly party of about thirty so the noise levels made conversation between us difficult. Maybe there should be a separate area for large parties so others may enjoy more intimate dining.

Another fab evening at the Wild Mushroom. This restaurant never disappoints. Rose Prosecco and canapés in the conservatory. So civilised! Followed by amuse bouche, home made breads and the most fabulous meal after. This restaurant is our favourite local, such a warm welcome from Gerard and his team. Dress up and go if you haven’t been, you won’t be disappointed!

Lovely restaurant, impeccable service and and good food. Sadly our visit was just let down by their strangely low tables.
I’m not tall by any means and yet it felt like I was eating out of my lap and as a back pain sufferer by the end of the night my meal was somewhat spoilt by having a dreadfully painful back.
About time for some better tables and I will be back.

Our sixth visit in a year, usually in company with 'foody' friends, all of whom have been very happy except our only evening visit on which we found the tasting menu a little unbalanced and lacking finesse in some areas - other dishes we could see passing looked up to the usual standard, and to be fair the restaurant was very busy.
We normally do lunch, which is exceptional value, and the restaurant is light and airy, with garden bar and outside seating for aperatifs and coffee. The table layout is excellent, and you never feel crowded.
Very happy to have an establishment of this quality so close at hand, we'll be back.

We have been here many times, and have never been disappointed. The food is quite simply sublime! The separate bar area (and outside in the garden in fine weather) is really welcoming and cozy, where you will always receive a selection of mini canapes (at no extra cost) to taste with your pre-dinner drink.
When you are seated at your table you also receive a small appetiser to whet the taste buds before your order arrives.
The staff are delightful and allow plenty of time for diners to finish their courses without any pressure. And the French manager clearly takes pride in his work, and in the quality of food and service that he oversees.
This converted farmhouse is quintessentially English in style and spirit, and is nestled in a tiny village close to Hastings. There's plenty of parking, though all the local minicabs know this restaurant well, and the staff are happy to call one for you if you would like.
The value for money for such superior cuisine puts many more pretentious diners to be found in London and Brighton in the pale.
Cannot recommend enough!
