Ate here last night with friends. The staff are friendly and the food delicious. We felt relaxed and were not rushed along so spent a good three hours on two courses catching up with our friends. Our only criticism is that it is a little overpriced for what you actually get.

We parked in the car-park behind The Middle House, then wandered into to crowded bar area with many tables occupied by people who were obviously enjoying themselves. There was a large party in one of the lounges and so we were taken straight through to the restaurant. Our corner table was perfect. There was a carafe of tap water on...

Lovely lunch served in a quaint dining room. The food was really very, very good. Other than the desert being slightly over cooked. Having said that, I ate every last mouthful. The only negative is the glassware. Sadly the wine glasses appeared to have been borrowed from Trust House Forte. Such a shame as this does impact on the enjoyment...

When we arrived for our overnight stay last Thursday we experienced a most unfriendly welcome from one of the bar staff and were just shown to our room. Not a good start! The superior 4 poster room was dull and uninspiring; the furniture was shabby, water stained and one bedside cabinet broken. The room was dull despite it being a...

Middle House is a historic house that has been around since the 1500's. We booked to go here for our anniversary and loved it. Friendly & welcoming staff, great service and amazing food. Would definitely recommend coming here but do book as it does get booked up.

My wife and I, on holiday in East Sussex and looking for somewhere to have lunch, happened upon the Middle House hotel and restaurant in the village of Mayfield. The building itself is, as can be seen from the picture above, delightful in appearance. We went inside and received a most friendly welcome from the staff at the bar and...

We arrived on a Thursday evening to a packed bar area which had a great vibe but left us worrying that we wouldn't be able to get a table (you can not reserve a table). Luckily someone vacated a table and we sat and enjoyed a very tasty meal. Both my friend and I had a vegetarian option which was...

A group of friends and I met up the other evening for a long overdue catch up over some food, we planned to do so at the Middle House which as a building I love, a nice pub with lovely open fires in every section, a fabulous example of a Tudor Inn. Although we were very comfortably seated in the...

Easter Monday family lunch with my very frail father-in-law. First visit having looked at the reviews on Tripadvisor. So glad we did, the staff were very helpful and patient with us, the food was wholesome and not over priced and the building is just stunning. All in all it was a real treat. Thank you!
