Eat & Drink
We are committed to freshness and using local ingredients whenever possible.
Our menus offer a wide selection with our ever changing ‘specials’ allowing us to use local & seasonal ingredients as well as Buckhurst Estate produce & exceptional food from Sussex and artisan suppliers – not forgetting our very own Buckhurst Sausage, made to Lord De La Warr’s own recipe.
Each of our nine rooms have been uniquely designed by Lady De La Warr to reflect the history and character of The Dorset Arms.
