Stanmer House

When Alex Proud, the Brighton-born entrepreneur, signed a long lease on Stanmer House, in 2016, taking it over from the pub operator, Whiting and Hammond, he didn’t have to think twice:

“I grabbed at the chance with both hands. It (was) a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. You can never really own it, but we hope to take stewardship of it for a generation.”

Over the past three years The Proud Group has invested considerable time and money in upgrading and improving the facilities and service at Stanmer, including a six figure renovation and redecoration of the main rooms. The Group have also acquired planning permission to convert the property into a boutique hotel, with exciting renovations set to take place in the early part of 2020!

Stanmer House in Brighton is steeped in history a stunningly restored Grade 1 country house nestled in unspoilt Grade 2 listed parkland and acres of peaceful, open-access Sussex woodland and countryside. The Park and House is just a stone’s throw from the hustle and bustle of Brighton and Hove and is the perfect location for a family stroll followed by a Sunday Lunch, or perhaps an afternoon tea.

Stanmer House Restaurant, whether you pop in for a cosy coffee and cake, or visit for a very special classic dining experience, offers an enchanting experience in the stunningly restored formal rooms of the 18th Century mansion.  The beautifully-cooked food is served at a price that is fair for everyone from producer to guest, with lunch being freshly prepared and served within the relaxed, classic, formal rooms of the house and traditional Roast Lunches being served every Sunday from 12noon – approx. 4pm.

This coming January and February, the team are offering a huge 33% off Stanmer off their legendary Sunday lunches and Afternoon Tea, so there’s no reason to let the post-festive season give you the blues!

At Proud Stanmer Country House, the team just love to uphold the wonderful, timeless British tradition of Afternoon Tea, where guests are offered the perfect environment to relax and indulge in the pleasures of homemade cakes, scones, pastries, tarts and sandwiches, as well as a selection of all your favourite teas.  Whether you are celebrating a birthday, an anniversary or simply treating a loved one, Afternoon Tea at Proud Stanmer Country House promises to delight

Afternoon Tea is usually served in the cosy, red Library, the grand Thomas Pelham dining room and the Lady Anne dining room featuring pristine white walls, with historical artwork telling some of the history of this handsome Grade 1 listed house (built in 1722 – over 100 years before Afternoon tea was introduced in England by Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, in the year 1840). In these Winter months, there is no finer place to be than beside one of the house’s roaring wood fires, sipping upon a tea cup and indulging in home made cakes.

Stanmer House is also the perfect setting for a wedding, ceremony or celebration, or for corporate or conference hire. Thanks to the Proud Group, this much-loved venue has been restored and sensitively modernised, with a large private garden, marquee and ample free parking. Versatile facilities, impressive formal rooms with all the modern touches, exceptional in-house catering using locally-source produce and welcoming staff; this hidden gem of Sussex is the perfect place to do business. This is a truly unique location, available for private hire all year round.

Whether you want a fabulous, show stopping party or an intimate and elegant reception, Stanmer House is the perfect choice for your special day. You can hire the stunning, grade listed country house exclusively or have a discrete ceremony in one of the beautifully renovated rooms.
