Sussex Finest

Sussex boasts some of the best homegrown produce in the country. For this category, we asked you to go out exploring and find the venues that hold “Made In Sussex” at the heart. We were looking for the best places within a 15-mile radius of Brighton and Hove. Village pubs serving local ale, idyllic views and provincial charm, stately or historic homes serving a lavish high tea, or gastronomic destinations which specialise in creating menus cameoing local produce, where epitomises the best of Sussex?
