So disappointed... I arranged for a surprise 50th lunch for my partner Tony and it was such a disappointment. Upon arrival, everything was fine. We had arranged to meet family and friends in the bar for a drink at 2pm to then sit down to starters at 3pm followed by lunch. About 2.30 we kept being asked if we wanted to sit down (this should have rung alarm bells then), we all joined the table at just before 3pm, to find the starters we had ordered we all just placed at the top of the table and not distributed evenly around. I had literally just taken my coat off and sat down, when the dinners started to come out, which was a huge shock to everyone as we did even have a chance to have one bite of the starters!!! The order was for 10 adults and 3 childred, two of the adults meals were wrong and one the childrens meals were wrong. The veg was hardly seasonal (carrots and parnsips), the lamb meals were all luke warm, the chicken dishes where dry and over cooked. Basically the orders had clearly been sitting there fore a while, hence the rush when we sat down to get the food to us super quick. This was futher confirmed by the time the desserts were delivered as the sticky toffee pudding was rock hard and all 8 dishes where returned, again had cleary been cooked ages ago and was left just warming up.. Two of these returned again. As you can imagine, this put a huge downer on the afternoon and rather than go to the bar afterwards for more drinks, we called all our others friends who had planned to join us later, to annouce a change of plan and sadly we all headed to another destination for the rest of the birthday celebrations. So what I hoped was going to be a lovely afternoon/evening for my partner turned into a disaster. We live in west chiltington and have eaten at the hotel several times and alwasys found the meals enjoyable. We also always recommened friends to use stay at the hotel when visiting However we have never eaten in a large group and pre ordered before and this is clearly were we went wrong Such a shame for such a special occasion

My husband and I have just had our Golden Wedding Anniversary lunch at the Hotel and the room was prepared beautifully for us. Attention to detail was perfect. The staff looked after us very well. We have had several comments from our guests about the lovely venue and good food so we have been delighted with our choice!

We had an amazing Afternoon Tea, my friend, whose birthday it was, said she felt throughly spoiled and that she had enjoyed every minute. A great experience all round.

The team at the Roundabout helped make my son’s christening perfect. All staffs were polite and helpful. The service was impeccable - and the food amazing, providing food for all different dietary requirements. Most of our guests commented on how impressed with the food provided. There was plenty with lots left over and so boxes were provided for guests to take some home. I will certainly return and recommend to family and friends. Five star!

The car park was full when we arrived andmreception unmanned, although we were expected. We were shown to a pokey bedroom with nowhere to put our case other than on the floor in front of the wardrobe which occupied valuable space. There was no cold water in the taps, you needed to run gallons of hot water before you could get cold water. Apparently this was due to health and safety. We changed rooms to one with normal taps. The coq au vin with jus, ordered for dinner, was anaemic when it arrived and sitting in a watery liquid. On cutting into the chicken blood oozed out. Waitress took the meal back to the kitchen. Limited menu so the replacement 'dinner' was fried cheese and chips - great meal to end a holiday. Waitress apologised but no word from the chef. In the morning on settling bill the chicken and cheese meals were not charged for, but we were charged for a drink we did not have. Manager was unapologetic about the raw chicken, denying all knowledge. She was very rude to us insisting we pay for the drink not ordered or drunk. Very threatening behaviour so we did pay. Definitely not a place to revisit.

Always a pleasure to eat here, whether a delicious evening Sunday roast - with the best gravy, or a refreshing glass with a cheeky cheese platter, or the fabulous afternoon tea. The staff are friendly, polite and accommodating, the atmosphere relaxing and the setting just perfect. Highly recommended and a jewel in the beautiful South Downs

We would like to say a big thank you to Dee the manager and her team for making everything run so smoothly on the day of my Dads funeral. The staff where friendly and helpful and the venue calm and relaxed. I would highly recommend it for any function or just for a drink or meal. They made a very sad day much more bearable, so thank you.

Lovely Sunday lunch sat in the garden, we did seem to be forgotten about as no one came to clear our main meal plates nor did they offer us the sweet menu so we paid and left.
