Where best of British meets pick of the produce
Whilst its name comes from the Latin for ‘small’, don’t think for a moment that our executive chef doesn’t think big when it comes to flavour.
Parva is all about unpretentious dining – modern British cooking using the very best seasonal produce, locally sourced wherever possible. From an à la carte menu that changes seasonally, to all day dining, light lunches and afternoon teas, Parva has something for every palate and occasion.

The Royal Lounge & Terrace
Where good times are had
One of our favourite rooms at Horsted Place Hotel, the former drawing room is a wonderfully welcoming space, a room to relax and take in the beautiful views across the gardens. We’ve renamed it in tribute to the Queen and Prince Philip, who were once frequent visitors to Horsted Place.
The Royal Lounge is where we host our all day menu and afternoon teas, while the Terrace is a popular spot in summer, whether it’s for drinks or dinner.

Sometimes, a change of scenery can really help you focus when it comes to trying to find fresh ideas and direction. A different perspective can give you, well, a different perspective; a catalyst to spark your whole team’s creativity. Our meeting space and conference rooms will do just that.
Horsted Place Hotel is both an accessible and flexible venue for meetings, conferences and corporate events, whether on a daily or residential basis. The Morning Room and the Library are both perfect boardroom-style meeting venues, whilst the Terrace Room with its French doors onto the garden is an outstanding choice for larger groups or theatre-style presentations – making it an ideal conference venue in Sussex.
