Most enjoyable lunch to celebrate my Dad's 90th birthday. All the meals were served in a very professional manner and the choice suited everybody's palate.

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.

    What a wonderful experience. Warm, friendly and helpful staffing made us feel very welcome in delightful surroundings. The service was very attentive without being overly so and the food served was delicious and certainly lived up to our expectations. We would definitely return.

    A wonderful experience. We chose the tasting menu with wines chosen by the restaurant. The food was excellent with each course having an amazing texture. The service was efficient, very helpful but not overwhelming. It lived up to my expectations.

    Fantastic attention to detail, from the friendly man who welcomed us in, to the lovely waiting staff who provided us with such good table service. We enjoyed pre-lunch drinks in a warm and comfortable lounge with wood panelled walls and a big log fire, followed by a delicious, well balanced lunch in the immaculately clean dining room, where tables are well spaced out and beautifully laid. Our Sunday lunch was from the set menu, which avoided the temptation of just providing carvery fare and offered a good variety of starters, main courses and desserts. I had the pleasure of eating a freshly cooked and very well risen chestnut souffle, which for me was the highlight of our meal - so few restaurants seem to be able to offer, or cook them well. We will definitely return shortly to sample more excellent cooking and hopefully the weather will improve, so we can see more of the beautiful garden.

    We are familiar with the venue as we have enjoyed afternoon tea and walks in the gardens previously. This was our first lunch there and it was everything we could have hoped for. Service was exemplary, obviously. We were about ten minutes late due to traffic but this was brush aside as a non-issue when we were welcomed. The dining room is very nice with plenty of space between tables. The food was excellent. We went for the 3-course a la carte and both our meals were wonderful. Wine list is extensive with a good range for most pockets. It was nice, too, that we were not rushed. The one-sitting policy means the table is yours for the duration of lunch. We will definitely return soon.

    What a wonderful lunch we had, the food was outstanding, the service impeccable and the setting just perfect. Loved the whole experience from beginning to end. We were given a map and had lovely walk around the grounds before lunch visiting their vegetable garden and just soaking up the beauty of the grounds. Must go back in the summer and see the gardens then.

    We came for lunch in between Christmas and New Year as a quiet Christmas celebration for just my husband and I after the mad rush.
    What an amazing meal, loved everything that was on our plates, but maybe surprisingly the thing my husband most raved about was the celeriac puree that came with his venison.

    We visited for lunch with friends and we all thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, being well looked after and we loved everything we chose from the menu.
