EAT - ALFRISTON

The George Inn

The George is exactly what you would expect and want from an 'Old English Inn.' First licensed in 1397, it sits in the heart of our beautiful Downland village. The emphasis at The George is on relaxation with great food, well kept beers, a super wine list and a friendly welcome.

The Cricketers Arms

Popular country pub nestling under the South Downs with a traditional cottage garden. Freshly prepared food and quality cask ales served direct from the barrel. Open all day everyday from April to October.

Wingrove House

Originally built as a family home in the mid 19th century, this recently refurbished colonial-style house is now a relaxed and stylish destination in the beautiful and historic village of Alfriston, East Sussex. Run by a small team, offering a personal and friendly service, with airy verandas, candlelit bar and brasserie and pretty rooms, it's a real antidote to the rush and bustle, yet just over an hour from London.

Deans Place Hotel

Traditional country house hotel sits handsomely in its own 4 acres of gardens with the beautiful Sussex Downs as its backdrop. Available for accommodation, restaurant and weddings.

The Star Inn

Our much-loved and historic inn has played host to pilgrims, travellers and even royalty across the centuries, and with three roaring fires, oak beams and an original medieval interior, come and be transported back in time…

Our ‘Young Sussex Chef of The Year 2017’ has created a fabulous Sussex based menu, and with award winning local ales and wines, we are the perfect place to unwind for locals and visitors alike.

With a newly designed ‘secret garden,’ 37 stylish en-suite bedrooms, and three beautiful function rooms for your wedding or party, we are the perfect answer to all of your needs!

The Smugglers Inn

Once home to the infamous smuggler, Stanton Collins, now home to good beer, great food and a warm and cosy vibe. Built in 1358, The Smugglers is a charming slice of old England. Set in the heart of the picturesque village of Alfristion, the Smugglers upon first inspection gives no clue to the untrained eye of the mischief and plotting that once creaked it floorboards. We invite you to smuggle yourself down, for just a beer, or if you like stay for a few nights.
