Food & Beverages
Enjoy a dining experience in a relaxed atmosphere in the candlelit 17th century dining room or in the Conservatory with views across the North Downs from your table. The menus focus on local and organic produce and include specialities such as locally landed sea bass, turbot, lobster and crab, Kentish woodpigeon and hare, venison and wild boar from Wadhurst Park, Romney Marsh lamb, Rye Bay scallops and Dover sole. The restaurant has been awarded two Rosettes by the AA Best Restaurants Guide and is featured in The Good Food Guide. Recently retired Chef Patron Chris Oakley has now handed over the reigns to Stephen Harvey, an accomplished chef in his own right who has worked in some of the most prestigious kitchens in the country including a certain 'Manoir' in Oxfordshire. He has worked alongside Chris for some time and has acquired classical skills with which to perfect his modern ideas inspired by world cuisine which go together to produce a modern blend of traditional British cooking with an eclectic feel. Stephen's aspirations as head chef are to attain a Michelin star (like his predecessor Chris Oakley) and to achieve three rosette status with the AA restaurant guide.
