The award-winning restaurant brings the loveliness of the outdoors indoors with floor to ceiling glass walls on all sides. Guests are able to combine the comfort and ease of a fine interior, (at tables lovingly set with fine glass, china and Studio Williams flatware), with the natural as well as the landscaped beauty of the gardens and grounds.
The food has been variously described as ‘a staggering tribute to the finest English produce’ (The Telegraph), ‘sumptuous’ and an ‘unbelievable taste experience’. And a Michelin star would seem to agree with these reviewers.
The key to the success of the restaurant is twofold. First, of course, is an exceptional team. Just as important, however, are the ingredients that are used. These are very often of the simplest kind but they are always obtained either from the Manor’s kitchen gardens or from local sources - and always as fresh as it is possible to get. As Executive Chef George Blogg says, if it isn’t in season, it isn’t on the menu.
Diners gazing out into the gardens and grounds beyond the glass walls of the restaurant are looking out at the same landscape that produced what they are eating.
This is an experience few restaurants can offer and even fewer can boast a landscape as beautiful to look at as it is generous with its produce! Gravetye Manor really is taking the ‘feast for the senses’ to the next level.
