BRAVO to the Best Restaurants Sussex 2019

What makes for the best restaurants Sussex? Is it those that dive into the harvest of the South Coast? Or those who have us grazing from the lush pastures of the Downs? We wanted you to find the out of town venue that exemplified not only the character of the county but celebrated its bounty.

The Great British Charcuterie sponsors the BRAVO 2019 award for the best restaurants Sussex, and you shouted from shore to rolling hill to declare Sussex’s Finest

1st place

Part of the Gingerman Group The Ginger Fox is your destination of choice when you’re looking for the best, most Sussex, experience.

2nd place

Staying a firm favourite for your Sussex jaunts for a second year is The Shepherd and Dog in Fulking. Ticking the boxes for everything you love, Nestled in the beautiful South Downs, The Shepherd and Dog is packed with 14th Century charm and modern gastro cuisine sourced from our abundant countryside.

3rd place

Leaping from 11th place in 2018 to top three this year is The Wheatsheaf in Henfield.
