I love taster menus & this one did not disappoint. The menu said "March" taster menu so I assume it changes monthly. Every course was delicious there were no weak course. I swapped my desserts for cheese but my husband really enjoyed his mousse followed by soufflé with ice cream. I look forward to coming here at a different time... More

I love this place. Had dinner here with a friend last year, then lunch with two friends this year, then afternoon tea this year with friends and today, lunch with my husband. It's great! Fresh, high -quality, seasonal ingredients, expert presentation and faultless, innovative and creative cooking, charming surroundings, served by delightful staff -I shall most decidedly return!

The food was fabulous - I had roast beef which was utterly divine! A beautiful setting too with wonderful Springtime gardens to walk round... More

We celebrated a wedding anniversary here and were totally delighted. Starting with champagne and canapés on the terrace followed by a walk in the grounds and the gigantic kitchen garden. The food and service were stunningly good. The wine list is comprehensive, we had a bottle of Meerlust Rubicon which I have never seen outside of South Africa - highly... More

Very few restaurants live up to their own marketing - but Gravetye does. Every contact with every member of staff is a pleasure - nothing is too much trouble - and unlike some establishments the staff feel like they are doing it willingly - rather than by a manual. Oh, and the food is fabulous too - by far the... More

Calm welcoming ambience in both dining area and lounges. Food was beautifully presented but identifiable and staff were well versed in the recipe ingredients and provenance

Description
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
