We enjoyed a perfect lunch in the beautiful brand new dining room overlooking the garden. Both the food and the service were of the highest standard. Highly recommend. A walk around the walled kitchen garden should not be missed.

Post-refurb Gravetye has certainly changed for the better. The new main restaurant is light and airy, and now focuses on the garden, which features so much in the recipes and history of the manor. The food is still true Michelin standard, but a nice addition...More

What a difference! It has been some years since we dined here but this was mostly excellent. The transformation of the dining arrangement makes it outstanding. Previously you were seated in one of several small and dark panelled rooms; now there's a large airy glass...More

From unhurried classical dining in our atmospheric wood panelled restaurant to leisurely lunches in the garden, from traditional Afternoon Teas to our very reasonable Table d’Hote menu – we hope to delight and enchant with our food regardless of the occasion. We are incredibly fortunate to have a one acre walled kitchen garden, which during the summer months provides 95% of all fruit and vegetables we use in the kitchen, assuring you of the very freshest ingredients. "We have an exceptionally talented team in the kitchen who are very keen to keep ingredients as fresh and local as possible. Dishes will change as often as is practical and will offer something new to try regardless of how often our guests dine with us. I look forward to inviting you into our restaurant at an exciting time to try, what I firmly believe to be, some of the most honest and delicious food in food in the area." Executive Chef – Rupert Gleadow
