Last month Cuckfield restaurant The Rose & Crown won the coveted Best Eatery award at the Bright Awards 2015.
Father and son business owners Mark and Simon Dennis picked up the award at the ceremony organised by local radio station Bright FM.
Paul Williams, who presented the award, commented: The Rose & Crown was praised for its relaxed and comfortable atmosphere, its cleanliness and its varied, ever-changing menu. Nominations gushed about the wonderful Sunday lunches, the monthly steak nights and the incredible attention to detail provided on all dishes. The fact they welcome walkers muddy boots and their dogs also went down well.”
