Menu Book a room

Unique setting, delicious food

As part of our re-opening measures we are working to ensure we balance the 'new normal' with the Ockenden Manor you are familiar with. This includes the creation of a new range of delicious menus which enables the kitchen to work together, safely spaced. Thank you for your patience as we adjust our menus accordingly and please note the menus and serving timings may be a little different next time you visit. All table reservations must be booked before arrival and timings may be staggered to allow for physical distancing. Please note if you arrive without a reservation you may be asked to wait or be turned away.

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, mid-morning coffee or a full afternoon tea. Led by award-winning Head Chef, Stephen Crane, the Restaurant serves some of the finest food in Sussex, and is a beautiful space with far-reaching views over Cuckfield Park. You may like to sit in our elegant drawing room and when the sun shines head outside to our terrace.

Serving Times:

Breakfast: 7am to 10am (Saturday & Sunday 8am to 10am)

Lunch: 12pm to 2.30pm

Afternoon Tea: 3.30pm to 5.30pm

Dinner: 6pm to 8pm (Friday & Saturday 6pm to 8.30pm)

Please let us know if you would like to dine outside these hours and we will do our best to make arrangements for you.
