Wedding Reception 20.02.20
We had our wedding in Lewes on 22/02/2020 and couldn't find anywhere in the town that was of a suitable standard to host the reception. We found the Esat Sussex National by accident as we looked for places outside the area. The wedding was arranged by Sasha who was very helpful from the outset and nothing was too much trouble for her, this was true of all the staff, including Kate and Jane on reception and the events staff too. The food is superbe and we had a free taster meal that confirmed this, all of our guests complimented the quality of the staff and food.Sent on 27/02/2020
I would highly recommend this venue for any function you may be thinking of having there.

Our Fantastic Wedding
We had an amazing Wedding at the East Sussex National and would highly recommend it to anyone and not just for Weddings! The Wedding Coordinator, Becky, was brilliant at helping us to plan our day right down to the smallest detail and was always very helpful. Everything surpassed our expectations; the attentiveness of staff, quality of the rooms, service, food, drink, and the exceptional venue itself. We were lucky that it was such a glorious day which showed off the venue to it's full potential, we were taken on a 5 minute golf buggy ride down to the lake area which is fabulous for photos. On the day we were looked after by Paul with his team who were first class, with nothing being too much trouble. Even when we had a problem with an external supplier on the day (not one that was recommended by the venue), Paul pulled out all the stops to help us to resolve the issue. Our lesson for anyone getting married is to use the suppliers recommended by the venue. All our family and friends enjoyed it too and everyone commented on what a wonderful venue it was, some even envious that they hadn't found it for their wedding! We were pleased the preferential room rate allowed many of our guests to stay overnight and extend our celebrations over the whole weekend. We're planning to return to the venue to celebrate our first wedding anniversary.Sent on 06/09/2016
