Hangleton Manor is rich with heritage. Housed in a Grade II listed flint building, it’s the oldest domestic secular property in Brighton and Hove, boasting an original dovecote in the extensive garden and beautiful carved intricacies on the dining room ceiling. The cosy interior is enhanced by atmospheric candlelight and the pictures on the walls tell the story of the building, including tales of its haunted history. Indeed, many have reported seeing ghosts in the manor.
The menu at Hangleton Manor offers a wide range of options to suit all tastes, including a great selection of vegan options. We started with the mixed sharing plate comprising a plethora of treats such as lamb kofta, coconut tzatziki, calamari, garlic mayo, hummus, flatbread and Middle Eastern cauliflower salad. I followed with a sumptuous Malaysian aubergine curry infused with tamarind, coconut, chilli and coriander and served with pineapple pickle and jasmine rice. My partner was equally enthused by his chicken Caesar burger stacked with smoky bacon, Monterey Jack and Caesar mayo accompanied by golden fries. To round things off, we shared a West Country cheeseboard with Cornish Yarg, Dorset Blue Vinny, and Somerset Capricorn goat’s cheese, complemented by a delightful quince jelly. As well as a fantastic bar and restaurant, Hangleton Manor boasts a function room available for hire, and is licensed for weddings.
