Fantastic meal at the fig tree last night, easily the best meal I have had in Sussex. The scallops were perfect as was the monkfish and beef special for mains. The chef used to work at the ginger fox (which is a great gastro pub), and now he and his wife have taken over the fig tree and taken the... More

You will not regret making a booking for The Fig Tree in Hurst (and book you must for the weekend!). The hubby and wife duo have done an amazing job of creating a dining destination that is thankfully on my doorstep, but well worth travelling to. Brighton think they have got it all when it comes to restaurants but this... More

We had a lovely meal here, we unexpectedly had to change our reservation at the last minute and the restaurant were charming and efficient over this. The food was sublime - the restaurant was great under the previous owners and now it is superb. Nothing was too much trouble for the friendly owner and her team. The wine list is... More

Truely is the best food you will get in sussex. We all chose three courses from the a la carte menu and could not criticise a single element from any of the dishes. All tasted incredible and looked even better. Having been born and bred in sussex I have had time to visit many of the local resteraunts and the... More

Fantastic food with warm, friendly service, this restaurant is certainly worth a visit. Every dish is a culinary delight with a great mix of flavours, and first class produce; with an interesting and varied menu. .

First time dining there - what a very pleasant experience. The welcome and attentive staff set the mood. Impressive but not overlarge menu with a special added in. Each course was beautifully presented in an artistic manner and the flavours were excellent. We had a range of dishes in the party and they were all of the same high standard.... More

We previously visited the Fig Tree in August 2016, and were very impressed. Returning for my birthday last week, it was apparent that the team had changed, and we were a little worried that the change might have been for the worse! But not at all, as good as last time, simply delightful. Two courses for £15 at lunchtime, both... More
