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.

    We enjoyed afternoon tea for four and loved the whole experience. The gardens next to the house were simply breathtaking. Apparently, 8000 tulip bulbs were planted this spring and we were fortunate enough to visit with perfect timing to see them all in bloom at their stunning best. We have been to many National Trust gardens, which have also been particularly beautiful this year but this one at Gravetye Manor was truly exceptional. We visited on a cloudy day and yet even without the sunshine the gardens were a delight. The afternoon tea was served in a relaxed lounge setting and was without fault. The bread for the sandwiches was super soft, the selection of cakes was excellent (we especially liked the mint and chocolate flower pot idea - so creative!) and the scones were simply delicious (just as they should be with crunchy outsides and soft centres). We spent an extremely happy couple of hours munching our way through the plentiful tea and left full and impressed with Gravetye and the welcoming and attentive staff.

    This is a fabulous restaurant to visit for a special occasion. Service impeccable with attentive staff, who were not intrusive. Food excellent, although my partners portion a little small, luckily I choose the roast, which I don't cook at home often. Also my soufflé was the best choice. Lucky me again.
    Best of all is the garden...I always try to visit in tulip season as what a display....such colour ...well worth spending time admiring the hard work and improvements I have noted over the past several years with gardeners willing to discuss and advise.
    Well done Gravetye, you have met the challenge to modernise your menus but not change what you are good at being, a country hotel in a perfect setting.

    This is by far the best dining and hospitality experience I have ever had and I have dined in several lovely restaurants including other Michelin Star ones - from the minute you you walked up the steps to enter the manor to the moment we left we we made to feel truly welcome and valued patrons . It was my partners birthday and every single member of staff that served or looked after us mentioned this to him . These little special touches meant so much.

    A favourite place for us to visit and have a meal. The whole experience makes the travelling to get to the restaurant well worthwhile.

    A truly outstanding experience from start to finish. The food was exquisite - imaginative and delicious - and service attentive without being obsequious. If you are not drinking, try the spice non-alcoholic cocktail. Try it even if you are drinking. Being used to London restaurants, I could not believe the (small) size of the bill, either, not least because London does not offer herb gardens, a lake and bluebell woods.
