Hurstwood (The) - Higher Hurstwood

Hurstwood Road, Higher Hurstwood, Nr. Uckfield, East Sussex, TN22 4AH
Find this good foodie pub/restaurant, slightly off the beaten track between Uckfield and Crowborough - but it's well worth seeking out.

Expect a proper local, offering a selection of real ales, bare boards and tables,an open fire in cooler months, a few comfortable sofas - but tables formally laid for those who book.

The kitchen offers an interesting menu, based on seasonal, mainly local, ingredients - although these are prepared in a more Mediterranean than Sussex style.

A late Spring menu offered 'Roasted Red Pepper & Tomato Soup with Truffle Oil & Homemade Focaccia'; 'Chargrilled Local Asparagus with Shaved Parmesan, Extra Virgin Olive Oil & Vincotto'; 'Homemade Potato Gnocchi with Gorgonzola Sauce, Toasted Pine Nuts & Rocket' and 'Pan-Fried Cuttlefish with Rice Noodle Salad of Carrot, Cucumber & Chili & Lime Dressing' among the starters.

'Slow-Roast Belly of Pork with Spring Onion Mash, Baby Carrots, Green Beans, Apple & Roquefort Sauce & Red Wine Jus'; 'Pan-Fried Fillet of Sea Bass with Sautéed Potatoes, Asparagus, Green Beans, Tarragon & Chorizo, Toasted Hazelnuts & Toasted Sesame Seed Oil' plus a much enjoyed dish of 'Crab Linguini with Chili, Garlic, Fennel, White Wine & Parsley' among the mains.

A short list of desserts offering 'Dark Chocolate Brownie with Vanilla Ice Cream'; 'Lemon Posset with Walnut Shortbread' and the like, is backed up by a selection of local cheeses.

Service, is both friendly and professional - and there are nice touches such as the automatic 'appearance' of fresh water, table night-lights and fresh flowers.
