The Sussex Life Food Village

If you have a passion for food and drink make sure you fit in a visit to the Sussex Life Food Village which is located both outside the Green Gate and in the adjacent Queen’s Jubilee Hall. Synonymous with great food and drink, the Sussex Life Food Village will tempt you with fantastic cheeses, pies, meats, chutney, jams, sweets and cakes. With everything from locally-brewed beer to award-winning bubbly and liqueurs, there is something for every palate.

Restaurants and Dining

If you’re looking to have a drink or a bite, our seated restaurants offer a wide range of delicious hot and cold food, bean-to-cup coffee and a selection of refreshing drinks. We also have a large Food Court located next to the Long Man Brewery Music Stage and a restaurant in the Bolney Tavern (behind The Sussex Life Food Village). If you fancy a Pimms, a glass of Champagne or a cool G&T, look out for the range of pop-up bars located on Turners Hill.
