Really disappointed with lunch yesterday. Have been attending the Sussex for years and, being a vegetarian, always enjoyed the salad bar. I ordered the spring rolls yesterday (which I was surprised are served with nothing, ie additional cost involved) and then was informed they were not vegetarian. I actually found the vegetarian menu really limited and not appealing either. I eventually landed up with fried eggplant slices which looked like squid and a garden salad. It was really an unbelievable boring and totally uninteresting meal which cost $16. At other establishments for that price I can get a vegeburger (or vegetarian spring rolls) with salad and chips. Since the upgrade, I believe the place has really gone down. My dining partner (a meat eater) said maybe it is time we looked for another lunch venue. Really so disappointed from an establishment I have been enjoying Sunday lunch at for so many years. We finally got a roll and butter each delivered to our table as we had just about finished our meal, my friend didn't bother eating hers. This place has really gone down hill. And I assume the justification for getting rid of the salad bar is that it was not cost effective ie you are putting $$$s before customer service and satisfaction. My meal was the most ordinary lunch I have had in years.

This place has improved a lot since their refurbishment, and the new menu is great. The new look inside feels a lot more welcoming. Ordering at the counter when they are trying to style it as high quality food (with prices to match) seems a little lacking in class though. The music also got a bit loud across the evening making conversation difficult. Otherwise service was friendly and the kids meals were large with a good activity pack.

We loved The Lane sparkling wine and the staff were very friendly. I couldn’t fault my lamb salad! The decor is pleasant and we would return for lunch again.

The venue was quite empty on arrival and we had to ‘find’a staff member to seat us. We could hear bad language and yelling coming from the kitchen area. We ordered two steaks medium rare and they were both medium to well done. No table service aside from delivery of meal. A disappointing experience.

It was unfortunate as it was my husband's birthday and he ordered a steak, which was barely edible. I had the Atlantic salmon which was quite nice, but overall we were very disappointed. The service was very good.
