A “SIMPLY PERFECT” VENUE
The English Wine Centre in Alfriston, in the South Downs National Park, was acquired by new owners in March 2019 following its closure by the previous management in January. Oak Lodge, the on-site hotel, is open offering boutique style accommodation in five en-suite bedrooms. The refurbishment of Old Barn, our Wedding and Event venue, is complete and we welcome enquiries and bookings for this and our Function Room. More improvements are planned across the site to develop the facilities offered and re-establish its reputation as a home for the English Wine Heritage as well as being a destination venue for weddings, short breaks, beautiful gardens, afternoon tea and lunch. Subject to planning we will have a new restaurant/tea room and shop opening in May 2020.
“The English Wine Centre was a breath of fresh air. Very welcoming but also super clean with really comfy beds. Beautiful setting close to lots of attractions.”
Alison Roberts - 2018
From the moment we walked in we loved The English Wine Centre. We had the most wonderful day with superb food and excellent wine. We can not recommend this venue highly enough and, whilst there might be larger or grander, there will be none that care like you’re part of their own family.

A selection of events are planned for guests to enjoy throughout the year including Tribute Nights, Themed Dinner nights, and Wine Tasting events.
