The Hungry Monk

January 4, 2010

 

Happy to report that The Hungry Monk, at Jevington in Sussex, is STILL my favourite restaurant!

Diana and I ‘road-tested’ it yesterday for Sunday lunch, and it was absolutely wonderful – as wonderful as I remember it from 30 years ago…

Cosy lounge for with log fire for our welcoming glass, lovely starters, tender locally-reared Sussex lamb and seasonal vegetables, pretty ace desserts including of course Banoffi Pie which they invented (accidentally!) in 1972. Back to the lounge for coffee and chocs. Great selection of wines (they offer a package of a glass each of three different ones for three courses, all magnificent; but the wine list has more mouth-watering goodies in it too).

Can’t recommend it too highly – and we will be back here with the family for my ‘special’ birthday dinner in a few weeks’ time!
