Deans Place, Alfriston, was originally a vast farming estate and became a private Sussex hotel at the beginning of the 20th century. Set in the village of Alfreston and on the banks of the Cuckmere River at the foot of the South Downs National Park, diners can enjoy a trip to one of East Sussex's most stunning villages. At Deans Place, food is their passion, and having been awarded two AA Rosettes for culinary excellence throughout the hotel, they are keen to show off their skills. Look no further for Dining in East Sussex, the village of Alfriston is a wonderful place for a day out. Take a stroll around the village's shops or 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. Enjoy the hospitality in a relaxing atmosphere with log fires burning in the bar during the colder months, or in the Spring and Summer months relax on the terrace and within the gardens.
