We had the most delicious meal in a long time last night at this delightful restaurant in the heart of Hurstpierpoint. Despite being a fairly small village restaurant, the menu was sophisticated and appealing, making the final choice a difficult one. I opted for duck breast to start, followed by venison, and was unexpectedly treated to monkfish cheek as a... More

We have eaten in many beautiful & exotic Michelin star restaurants all around the world, so we're very pleased to discover this amazing find right on our doorstep! The wine menu is gorgeous, the staff were lovely ... but the food was absolutely stunning! All eight of us ate every single piece of food on our plates in all three... More

A ray of sunshine in this dreary little village, although as others have mentioned the ambiance is a bit lacking, the food nicely balanced throughout the menu was well prepared and presented by charming eager waitresses. My wife and I enjoyed a lovely meal and will definably return.

The Fig Tree is just amazing, we have eaten here several times now and it just keeps getting better! The Mallard starter is incredible, so much so we had to go back this evening just to have it again! We can't speak highly enough of the food & the service given at this bold yet little restaurant in the village... More

Dinner for a friend's birthday, her first trip and she was delighted, we have a lovely three-course meal, each course was very good. The Fig Tree has recently been taken over by new managers, I think they were still settling in at this time as it was not as amazing as my previous visits but bodes well for the future.

We've made a few attempts, unsuccessfully , to visit The Fig Tree since its been taken over by James and Jodie. They're so busy especially weekends. But as it was earlier in the week and a bitterly cold evening this time we were able to get a table. Wow! we were not dissapointed, and it was definately worth the wait.... More

Couldn't have asked for better food or service, the presentation was excellent best Sunday roast we had ever tasted.

The food was very good. Our problem with the evening was that every point we felt rushed. We were 4 friends wanting some time to catch up and chat but the food came very quickly. After the main course we ordered a further bottle of wine and asked if we could wait for deserts but they didn't seem very relaxed... More
