the trail 8th September

On Friday afternoon we visited The Mug Tree, Quartol, Dom Domingo, Va Nak Kam then onto the Trinity Methodist Church. East Grinstead’s MP, Mims Davies had a taste of what was on offer and was very impressed. She admitted that she would usually stick to the same restaurants and that the trail, set up by Nicolas Castiglione, would definitely tempt her to go back to these restaurants again. 

It is great that 11 businesses that took part part in the Food & Drink trail have decided to extend the opportunity by an extra week. These include: 

1. Gurkha Restaurant – Mon – Thur 12 – 2pm and 6pm-8pm

Kathryn greeted us with a warm smile and made us perfect coffees. We tried the very chocolatey brownies that were freshly made and they were sensational.

    A stunning Sri Lankan Restaurant, we met the very friendly and chatty brothers, Dino and Krish. We tried the most delicious Lentil Fritter and Mutton rolls.

      You can expect to receive a very warm welcome from Hermano, who enjoyed helping us select our starters, wines, beers and mocktails.

      With the trail card you can enjoy a choice of 3 starters during their opening hours.


        We received a very warm welcome from Ekrem at his luxurious Turkish restaurant. Despite the heat, we were quite cool sitting by the large open windows, it felt like we were on holiday.


          Everyone looked to be having a jolly lovely time sharing stories whilst having tea and cakes!
