Do not ignore the bad reviews!
Very unprofessional. I left a review on their facebook page (1 stars also) and was accused of a false review. I have been to Stanmer house and although it is beautiful on the outside and in, I could not say the same for the staff. They don't seem to have a clue of what is going on and it is a very poorly ran establishment. I was then left a facebook message by Rob (--) (the manager) saying: "you lack integrity". Absolutely out of order.

The service was very poor, the food was awful (e.g. tiny, overcooked tasteless mullet fillets, £4 for half a carrot described as 'Roast Winter Vegatables), and the ambiance very unpleasant - more like a transport cafe. Only plus point - the staff were very pleasant and the manager apologised.
This is a place to avoid.

I had read almost all the reviews on the Stanmer, which were very mixed. There were a lot saying bad service and miserable staff. We found neither, the staff were lovely and the service excellent. Just shows you not to listen to reviews! Highly recommended.

My partner visited a wedding open day recently so we could consider Stanmer House as a wedding venue.
On the day she said it seemed like a possible option, but wanted to go back for second look.
As my family were visiting with us we decided to book afternoon tea at Stanmer House, relax a bit and see if we wanted to go ahead and book our wedding here.
Long story short, we won’t be.

The whole experience was a let down.
Low quality food and drink, staff that didn’t seem that well trained and just a general feeling that it was all rather lacking.
The rooms were not very well kept, the toilets especially!

We went to the bar after the tea and ordered drinks.
When two of had our drinks but were yet to pay we were told the bar had closed and that my parents couldn’t order a drink.
This was at 5pm on a Saturday.
There was no notice the bar was closing.
We’d asked for martinis and were offered Martini Bianco. The bar staff didn’t even know what a martini was.

Considering a wedding at this venue will set you back £15k plus, we were sorely let down with the overall feeling of poor service, low quality decor and food.

Our venue hunt continues.
