The Castle Restaurant

Our Story

In The Castle Restaurant, we strive to bring you a menu that constantly changes with the seasons.

Fortunately placed between the Sussex coast and countryside; we will always have seasonal seafood and some of the best offerings from the Sussex Downs.

Our Chefs are well-travelled and influenced by other cuisines. They enjoy blending classic ingredients with Asian and Indonesian flavours to create dishes that will give diners a new experience.

Set in an old coaching inn, The Castle Restaurant has been tastefully restored to create an elegant dining room which still retains its charm and history of bygone years.

Meet our Head chef

Ben Miller’s love for cooking first started under the watchful eye of his Father who was the Executive Chef of The Ritz. Ben has worked in some top Kitchens across the country; including Amberley Castle, Danesfield House, Restaurant One-O-One in Knightsbridge (London’s Premier Fish Restaurant) and The Bath Spa Hotel where he personally achieved two AA Rosettes.

Ben’s cooking was celebrated by Michel Roux Jr on BBC’s Masterchef The Professionals where he successfully reached the quarter finals of the competition. An experience he felt was a highlight of his cheffing career.

Former Head Chef at The George in Burpham, Ben has now joined us at The Norfolk and continues to deliver excellent food, using seasonal and local produce where possible at affordable prices. Ben also loves to travel and is forever inspired by chefs and gastronomy from around the world; constantly bringing new ideas and fusion cooking into his kitchen.
