Head Chef - Stephen Crane

Stephen Crane was born in Sussex and lives in Balcombe, next to Cuckfield. He joined Ockenden Manor in 2001. He first became interested in food at school - when he realised he wasn't good enough at football in 1993. His interests grew and he became an apprentice at a hotel near Gatwick Airport before joining London's Halcyon Hotel in 1993. Here he met Martin Hadden, executive chef of the Historic Sussex Hotels. Stephen first joined The Spread Eagle as Head Chef and then Ockenden Manor in 2000. Stephen's menu is classically French in style, with a strong loyalty to locally sourced Sussex produce from around Cuckfield and his own home village.

Crammed with history and character, with its elegant sitting room warmed by a roaring log fire and cosy, wood-panelled bar, Ockenden Manor makes for a perfect escape. The award winning restaurant at Ockenden Manor offers a superb fine dining experience from the beautiful new dining room overlooking the gardens with stunning views to the South Downs National Park. The restaurant serves some of the finest food in southern England and incorporates the freshest ingredients, sourced locally in Sussex wherever possible.
