Winter Polizzi Escape / Dinner with Alex

Book a roomBook a table


The Star is a heavenly base for walkers. ‘There are walks in every direction; short, long, high and low, level along the bends of the Cuckmere River towards the sea, steep on the Downs and cliffs above. There is nowhere more glorious to walk so close to London.

Set off across the South Downs Way in search of sea air from The Star in Alfriston, inspired by the set of beautifully illustrated walks

Go armed with a picnic packed by the hotel’s kitchen (Tim Kensett from The River Café is head chef) and fuelled by a breakfast of Sussex gypsy toast with whipped Northiam Dairy cream and Cuckmere honey.
