Originally a vast farming estate, Deans Place became a private Hotel at the beginning of the 20th century. Since then the estate has evolved into a highly regarded Alfriston Hotel and Restaurant, combining heritage charm with impeccable service and tranquillity. Set on the banks of the Cuckmere River at the foot of the South Downs National Park, this idyllic position offers exhilarating contrasts for short break in Sussex; enjoy the bustle of Alfriston Village High Street or Dinner alfresco on a Summer's evening, relax with afternoon tea in the Victorian gardens or supper before a crackling log fire. Alfriston is a wonderful place for a day out. Take a stroll around the village's shops or to take a gentle amble along the river amidst the glorious South Downs, and Deans Place offers a superb place to meet and share time with friends. Morning Coffee and Afternoon Tea are served throughout the day or you may enjoy the bar & terrace menu for a lighter option, served from 11:00am until 9:15pm. Deans Place also offers the use of several elegant private rooms and an alfresco terrace with Barbeque area, for all types of celebrations and events. There are four functions suites, seating 10 – 140 guests, offering menus that include delectable canapés and lunches; fine dining or lazy poolside BBQs. Deans Place has recently been awarded two AA Rosettes for culinary excellence throughout the hotel.

My family and I recently visited the Deans Place hotel for Saturday brunch (with two young children) and enjoyed every bit of our time there. The setting is cosy and relaxing and the food and service were equally fantastic. Our waitress was extremely thoughtful and accommodating. We never felt rushed or in the way. Every member of our group thoroughly enjoyed their food. One lovely little touch was that they had a book table near where we were sitting where the children found some lovely books to read. We will definitely be back soon!

When you enter Dean Place you receive a warm, inviting greeting from front of house, we were then shown through to the bar area where we were offered a drink which I then proceeded to find out were complimentary which was a lovely touch! The Dining Room was set out immaculately, the food and wine were exquisite and the service was 1st class it really couldn’t be faulted! We had Chris, one of the managers at Deans Place Hotel attending to our every need, offering well researched advice on absolutely everything we asked about! He was incredibly warm and friendly and made the whole experience an amazing one! We even asked to see the bridal suite, which wasn’t occupied, nothing was any trouble at all! A massive thank you to Chris and Deans Place Hotel for a wonderful evening and we are both extremely excited to be celebrating our Wedding day at this beautiful hotel! Ryan and Olivia
