This beautiful county has a diversely rich landscape where natural ingredients grow freely, so it’s no wonder we have hotels with some of the best restaurants in Sussex. With the finest meats, fish, vegetables and fruit grown right on the doorstep, you can expect award-winning dishes when dining in Sussex.

The Pass at South Lodge

With Head Chef, Matt Gillan, at the helm, this Sussex restaurant has received great acclaim as well as a Michelin star and 4 AA Rosettes. Matt has appeared twice on television now, including Saturday Kitchen and A Taste of Britain, making him a bit of a celebrity chef.

This stylish restaurant has sleek design and a vibrant atmosphere. The food focuses heavily on using fresh, seasonal ingredients. Also, new to The Pass, a wonderful selection of dinner menus are available, including surprise menus for the more adventurous diners who want to put their trust entirely in the hands of the chef.
