Went as a family of five for lunch. Very nice very place/location and very good food. However did not like being pushed into a side room at one end of the restaurant, especially as we booked well ahead. Good value for the venue and date. Service good if a bit slow, but it was busy. Portions a bit small, but... More

We ate in the restaurant and enjoyed our food immensely. It was high quality produce, imaginatively prepared an beautifully presented. The portions were perfect - not too much, not too little and the choice was wide

We are here for the second time and thought overall the food, wine and service was very good indeed. Things were a little slow but you don't mind too much when the food is great. The lobster starter and Sussex beef were great.

We had high hopes for this restaurant when we visited in January to celebrate my mother-in-law's 70th Birthday. The first four guests sat in the bar on arrival and waited 20 minutes for the bottle of champagne they'd ordered. My husband and I arrived shortly thereafter and waited 10/15 minutes for the drinks we ordered. We were finally taken to... More

Staying for two nights and meeting friends for dinner at Camellia. We were getting together with old friends and spending freely. Sadly, the service we received generally at hotel and The Pass disappeared on Saturday night. Our waiters really didn't communicate. We wondered if a wedding at the hotel affected the service.

Spent a wonderful Saturday lunchtime to celebrate a birthday. Meal was excellent and they made special 'off-menu' meals for grandchildren. Staff were attentive and polite. A pleasure to visit.

Four of us dined at South Lodge on a Saturday evening and overall the meal and everything about South Lodge was good. Pleasant and helpful staff, nice surroundings and decor and a good menu with good food.

A variety of attractive, expertly cooked courses with a centrepiece of succulent roast beef and Yorkshire Pudding with an array of seasonal vegetables (and a sensible amount of gravy!).

We visit The Camilla several times a year and it never disappoints. It is situated within the charming South Lodge hotel located in glorious parkland overlooking the South Downs. The menu provides a wide choice and the quality of the dishes is of the highest standard bordering, in my opinion, on a Michelin star. Sadly Sunday lunch though, like many... More
