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.

Customer reviews for Gravetye Manor
((((* 28 March 2017 by Pamela Stevenson from Crondall, Farnham
Beautiful setting, preceded by wander round the wondeful gardens - a major draw. Comfortable seating, elegantly laid table, pretty china.
Excellent sausage rolls, finger sandwiches, scones, jam and cream. The cakes, with the exception of a delciious little custard tart, were a bit too unremittingly sweet for our taste.
The staff were all friendly and polite but several seemed very inexperienced. We had some long waits. The initial wait was not a problem - comfy seating etc. When the tea arrived it was poured by a waiter who then went to get milk. Another long wait. Very long (20 minute?) waits for more tea/ coffee were also a problem.

We all thought everything was perfect from the attention paid to us and the food presentation to the taste and content . The menu we chose was the normal lunch from which all of us had only two courses but that was sufficient .

Amazing food, stunning venue, great service

Beautiful setting. Service was, for me at least, a perfect combination of formal yet friendly. The food overall was delicious. Standout dish was a beetroot salad starter with cow's curd. All dishes had highlights, some better than others. Dessert of rhubarb custard tart was possibly a little disappointing. 4 courses (including the amouse-bouche) plus coffee/tea and petit fours for a fixed price of £55 per person - excellent value for money we felt.

A most enjoyable experience. This is an exclusive restaurant that sets very high standards. The quality of the service was excellent as was the quality of the food. Superb selection of wines, spirits and other drinks. I enjoyed a wheat beer, for example. Drinks are a shade expensive but for a special occasion, this venue is very difficult to beat.

We made the most of the stunning grounds and gardens with a walk after lunch. The quality of the dishes was very good, with the mackerel tartare and amuse bouche standing out as highlights on the lunch menu. The venison starter was lacking some flavour but everything else was great. Good value lunch menu at £33 for 3 courses. Service was excellent and very attentive. Gravetye is well worth a visit to see the manor house and estate.

Wow what a fabulous place. Four of us dined here last night we had the tasting menu. The scallops where delicious. The venison was my favourite course! The rhubarb soufflé to die for. A gorgeous meal in a very, very beautiful manor.
