Awarded a prestigious star in the 2016 Michelin Guide, Gravetye Manor is a gorgeous fine-dining destination, tucked away deep in the West Sussex countryside. Steeped in history, the manor enjoys a 1-acre walled kitchen-garden from which fresh ingredients are sourced.

Gourmet British cuisine is served in the wood-panelled Gravetye Manor dining room, by a blazing log fire. Try the poached lemon sole with cuttlefish and ink macaroni, the roasted breast and confit thigh of guinea fowl, or the seared loin steak of aged beef with summer greens, braised snails and a leek and bone marrow jus.

Delicious vegetarian & vegan options are also available. For a lighter, less formal option, try the lounge menu, or bask in the summer sun in the Gravetye Manor gardens and enjoy a spot of afternoon tea.

Gravetye Manor in East Grinstead is a 6-minute drive from East Grinstead Rail Station.

    Service and food were amongst some of the best I have had. Would love to return in the summer when the gardens are in full bloom.

    Gravetye is back to its splendid best. We spent the first night of our married life there 46 years ago, gave up going for a while when standards dropped, started back 3 years ago and it is great. Friendly helpful, unpushy staff, great menu and chef, excellent cellar, all in a glorious house.

    I have to say the food is excellent but our visit was spoiled by poor service. When booking I stated that my wife was a pescatarian. This was not mentioned by anyone but my wife was given a vegetarian menu - with so much good seafood on offer that was a little surprising.

    We ordered a glass of sparkling English wine, an apple juice and a bottle of still water for the table. We were served a glass of Taittinger and a bottle of sparkling water - and no apple juice! The order was corrected when we pointed out the mistakes.

    The food was good. The service was a little odd, in that every dish was brought out to a visible service station where plates might sit for 2 or 3 minutes before being served. None of our plates were there for more than 15 or 20 seconds, but we definitely saw some sit for a lot longer.

    The scallops and venison were good, but my highlight was the forced rhubarb soufflé which was superb.

    We had the seven course taster menu. Expensive, so a one-off treat. Brilliant meal, very memorable. Favourite savoury dish was the venison, followed by the scallop. Both desserts (apple sorbet and white chocolate mousse / rhubarb souffle) were divine, I could happily have had seven taster dessert dishes! :) The whole experience was thoroughly enjoyable and novel - and all the staff were excellent. Surroundings were also beautiful. We didn't have wine so can't comment on that! Only thing I would say is that we had thought coffee/tea was included in the price of the menu but it was £5pp on top.

    Everything just perfect and as expected from previous visits, thank you.

    We really enjoyed the experience at Gravetye, from arrival and drinks by the fire to the excellent meal - best beef I have had in many a year. All finished off with coffee by the fire again. A really enjoyable 3 hours spent being looked after.

    Exterior and interior to Gravetye Manor is very elegant, with beautiful gardens to walk around after lunch. Food was above average and staff very attentive. Excellent.
