Ashdown Park Hotel, Wych Cross, RH18 5JR

The beautiful rural estate of Ashdown Park can be found near Forest Row in East Sussex, and is a spectacular setting for a special evening meal. Originally built circa 1815, the mansion house that’s home to Ashdown Park Hotel also houses The Anderida Restaurant – a dining establishment that effortlessly reaches the loftiest heights of decadence and luxury.

Large windows, elegant drapes and a baby grand piano all contribute to the grandeur of this glorious dining space. The waiting staff are incredibly conscientious and friendly, attending to your every need with all of the grace and charm you would expect in a venue of this calibre. Awards and accolades adorn the walls prior to entering the bar, which separates the rest of the hotel and restaurant.

Having taken a seat in the cosy bar to sample some entrées, enjoy a beer and consider the evening’s food and drink menus, my companion and I set about making our choices. The drinks menu was varied and extensive. With a particular emphasis on wine, and a selection of cocktails on offer, you’ll never be short of choice. Having made our minds up, we were escorted to our table directly in front of the glorious fireplace where we enjoyed our appetiser of cured beef with mint sauce, followed by a refreshing palate cleansing lemon sorbet.

To start, I plumped for hand-dived scallops with parsnip purée, parsnip crisps, and pomegranate dressing, which was perfectly executed, while my companion revelled in the smoked partridge breast, swede and caramel purée, pistachio crumb and pickled purple carrots. My fillet of venison was served with beetroot, blackberries and baby gem lettuce, and was sumptuous until the last bite, while my partner’s fillet of beef with truffled potato, goose liver butter, and cauliflower purée was simply exquisite. The pinot noir was the perfect pairing for both of these hearty dishes.

To finish, we sampled dark chocolate torte with banana and honeycomb and millionaire’s shortbread, made with rich dark chocolate and salted caramel. The presentation and service was impeccable throughout our visit, and I cannot recommend The Anderida Restaurant highly enough.
