We booked a good month in advance as a farewell meal for our children before returning to university. Limited but good selection for all tastes. Pleased to see our favourite wine on the list, but the disappointed they had run out of it. Hopefully they will re stock soon.

It's not the first time that I have visited this establishment! We went for a birthday lunch. There was a problem with the booking, the time that we had been given was incorrect. We had to eat earlier than planned. As a result the first two courses were delivered in the wink of an eye. The quality of food was... More

Heard lots of positive things about The Hurstwood from friends so though we would give it a go. Fantastic! The food and service was perfect, great atmosphere . Definitely recommend and will be going again soon.

What a gem! Staying in High Hurstwood for a couple of nights and so glad to have stumbled upon this pub. They squeezed us in last minute - the fire was roaring and I could've fallen asleep in the comfy chair. Being from the West Country, we were excited to find some proper local cider and highly recommend it -... More

This evening me and the girlfriend had a meal here as we have been here before around 2 years ago and truly enjoyed it, this time it was poor on most levels my starter of lamb scotch egg was cold as well as being on the tad raw side, if it was to be served rare at least slightly warm.... More

Stunning decor, warm and attentive service, delicious food and felt like a slice of chic city cool amid the countryside calm. New favourite place! We felt welcome with 2 young kids in tow too. Walked it off around Pooh Sticks bridge in Hartfield. Frosty Sunday bliss. Thank you Hetty and team! Xx

The overall impression, certainly at Sunday lunchtime was of controlled chaos, we waited very nearly an hour before we received our starters. The staff do their best under what seems to be rather stressful working conditions, the Hurstwood either needs more waiting staff or a bigger kitchen and more kitchen staff, either way waiting 55minutes for the starter is unacceptable....

we have been here many times and we have find it a bit hit and miss in the past. We decided to book for Sunday lunch and unfortunately, once again, a disappointing experience. Starter was fabulous but we waited over 1 hour for our main course and considering 3 out of the 4 in our party was a roast lunch... More

Me and my pal probably classify as a couple of good old boys. Our needs are simple: good food, good service and a cosy calm that allows one to have a decent conversation without any noisy distractions. A lovely welcoming fire as we walked in and instant recognition for my buddy who has been here many times. It was my... More

We have eaten regularly at the Hurstwood - on our latest visit the food was up to its usual high standard ( excellent "high end" cooking - albeit portion size is nouvelle cuisine). On previous visits we have had to scour the wine list to find an economically priced wine - but they appear to have changed the list for... More
