Food Festivals in Sussex 2015

Cooking demonstration at Horsham's Big Nibble eventIf your short break involves sampling local flavours then Sussex is the place to head for. It's not just the fantastic resturants, pubs and cafes that support local produce, it is also the many Food Festivals. There are events on throughout the year to encourage a taste of locally grown and produced food and drink - from scallops and cheese to meat and vegetables. Don't forget the cakes and fruit and wash it all down with a fine brew - beer or wine - we do them both and we do them well.
