SquareMeal Review of
Source at Proud Country House Stanmer
This Brighton restaurant boasts a pretty spectacular setting, housed in an 18th century Georgian Manor House in Stanmer Park. Open seven days a week, Proud offers everything from breakfast through to afternoon tea and Sunday lunch. Early risers can pick from the likes of a Full English or eggs Benedict topped with Scottish oak smoked salmon. The à la carte meanwhile is short but varied, featuring cuisine-leaping dishes such as Thai beef salad and fish pie. On Sundays, Proud serves up a stomach-warming selection of roasts, with options including beef, pork, lamb or a veggie wellington, all served with goose-fat roast potatoes, seasonal greens, roasted root vegetables, gravy and Yorkshire puddings. Those looking for a relaxing day out can indulge in Proud’s afternoon tea, which includes all the classics such as scones with jam and clotted cream, finger sandwiches and mini eclairs, with the option to add a bottle of Rose Prosecco – bottoms up!
