In the quintessentially British East Sussex village of Alfriston is the famed The Star hotel, home to Capella Restaurant. Once renowned as a meeting place for smugglers fresh from the high seas Capella is now more likely to host well heeled foodies and tourists seeking quality, yet the restaurant – in fact, the entire hotel – retains plenty of character too, from the black and white beamed exterior right through to the huge fireplaces and tiled floors within. With a coveted AA Rosette to its name, Capella’s star (if you’ll pardon the pun) is very much on the ascendant. Head Chef David Shiers and his team have ensured that this dining room is one to watch, sourcing local ingredients to produce highly creative but unpretentious modern British dishes that both celebrate flavour and bring comfort to the most jaded of diners. Children’s portions are available as well as a dedicated menu being offered for your own little stars, encouraging family dining.
