About Buxted Park Hotel
Enjoy the elegant surroundings of our Palladian mansion in the heart of East Sussex for a dining experience to remember.
Gather friends, family or colleagues for dinner in The Dining Room Restaurant, our 2 AA Rosette venue in the centre of the hotel, or treat someone special to a stunning afternoon tea – a renowned signature of Buxted Park – in our traditional Coat of Arms Lounge overlooking expansive lawns.
Whatever the occasion, modern British food takes centre stage in all of our menus, with seasonality and provenance at the heart. In the winter, cosy up by the fire in our Crystal Bar or Coat of Arms Lounge for a pre-dinner drink or in the warmer months, the doors to our terraces and gardens will be wide open for guests to enjoy a sip the sunshine.
Obviously Atmosphere is absent as there were only 2 couples in the whole of the Orangery. Actually we weren't bothered as we were having a private dinner and we had the chance to chat to Rob, whom we have known for several years, about what was happening. We hope business picks up soon as Buxted Park is a special place.
Everything about this stay was perfect and amazing service especially from Paul Morris who was our waiter for our meal. He was very friendly and was very helpful and no requests were a problem. The only query I had was that we booked the Winston Churchill suite and we ended up staying in a different suite (Basil Ionidis suite) Although the one we stayed in was amazing it was not the suite that was advertised.
Outstanding level of service in difficult times. Hand sanitising stations upon entry, temperature checked and clear signage regarding social distancing before taking drinks on the terrace. A great takeaway afternoon tea, just the right amount of food. My wife has to have a dairy free option, all dealt with ease and tasted great. A thought for the future, maybe some wooden cutlery to help with cutting the scones and applying the rest amount of jam and cream provided OR let customers know to bring their own.
Absolutely fabulous especially under the current conditions all the staff went the extra mile. Well done guys keep up the good work we felt that normality had returned, for a short while anyway.
Excellent service: the member of staff attending us in the bar and at table made the evening a real occasion.
My friend thoroughly enjoyed her birthday treat. First time visit for myself. Really was impressed.
Our second visit and - again - was perfect, thank you! Please extend our thanks to the gentleman staff member who served our Afternoon Tea; he was friendly, courteous and couldn't have done more to make us feel welcome. And we noticed he offered the same level of service to the other two couples who were taking Afternoon Tea at the same time as we were. Thank you Hand Picked! We stay regularly at Fawsley Hall Hotel and dine at our more local Buxted Park Hotel, always experiencing the best service! We wish you all the best of health and hope you're coping with these extreme challenges! Kind regards Debbie Bishop
Lovely afternoon tea with champagne in a beautiful setting
Afternoon tea was perfect in every way. Fresh, beautifully presented items, a wide choice of sandwiches even for our vegetarian guest. Tea was freshly brewed and not stewed, also a good selection of alternative tea varieties. Service from friendly staff made us feel very comfortable. Hope to visit this beautiful hotel again soon.
Always a lovely welcoming experience with excellent food
Jean-Francois really looked after us as always. Many thanks
Wonderful experience once again. Our third time now. Champagne cream tea to celebrate our wedding anniversary as sadly our trip to Florence cancelled due to COVID 19. Staff couldn’t do enough for us.
Although we had a afternoon tea at the discount rate , we was shocked to be told that because we had the discount rate , we would only have two scones instead of the usual 4.we have enjoyed this offer on 4 ocassions at Buxted park & one at Yarm.we are members of handpicked hotels & have used this chain for quite some time . This will now be our last time that we visit
Food was very poor, order fish for main course, swimming in juice hardly any veg & no potatoes
Thank you for the feedback. I have taken your comments directly to the Head Chef who will look into the offering on all our main courses. I was glad to see the issues did not impact your score on service. I hope to welcome you back to Buxted Park Hotel in the future.
Lovely afternoon tea, everything very fresh and well presented. Lively setting
It's always good to go to Buxted...
Lovely hotel in the Ashdown Forest. Met at desk and acknowledged out reservation. Very pleasant and attentive server. The only thing that let it down were the pastries/cakes - average with too much cream. Sandwiches and scones were very nice.
Everything was just perfect, as always
We had a fantastic afternoon tea for my husband’s surprise birthday treat. I had let the hotel know it was his birthday and they brought a lovely Happy Birthday treat of little chocolates which was a lovely touch. I’ve had a lot of afternoon teas over the years but this was by far the best - the scones were incredible. As were all the variety of cakes. The champagne was delicious. My earl grey tea was really flavoursome. A really memorable and super afternoon. All the staff were charming and very helpful, without being intrusive and OTT.
Food was excellent, we were there for the Jazz lunch and it was a very nice relaxed atmosphere. The service was great too
We have always had a good time on our visits to Buxted and would recommend it to anyone wanting a relaxing break or one of thier themed events
Excellent service and location. Thoroughly recommend.
Excellent service, lovely staff and the food was amazing! Thanks.
Lovely afternoon tea served in a comfortable lounge. Our waiter looked after is extremely well and was professional and friendly
We did feel once the food arrived we were somewhat left to get on with it.
