Full Description
The Star, part of The Polizzi Collection, is a striking grade II Listed 15th century building in the medieval village of Alfriston, that reopened in June 2021 after an extensive renovation, with Olga and Alex Polizzi at the helm. The 30 bedrooms have been designed in Olga Polizzi’s style, using contemporary furniture and local antiques, English wallpapers and fabrics by Richard Smith, with splashes of vibrant colours and textures. The restaurant, with its own inner courtyard for warm weather dining, serves simple, unfussy dishes with a focus on clarity of flavour, and the ever-changing seasonal menus utilise the abundance of exceptional Sussex produce.
