Set in Hampton Manor's historic walled garden, Grace & Savour topped SquareMeal's Top 100 Restaurants in the UK list in 2023, as well as winning a Michelin star for its diverse, seasonal tasting menus and outstanding hospitality. The restaurant is spearheaded by head chef David Taylor and his wife Anette - David was part of the team that won Maaemo in Oslo its three Michelin stars, so the restaurant is in extremely good hands, whilst Anette leads the front of house team.
Hampton Manor itself is a 45-acre estate that opened in 2008, and has always had a considerable food reputation, thanks to former flagship restaurant Peel's, and Smoke, which is run by MasterChef: The Professionals winner Stu Deeley.
Upon arrival at Grace & Savour, guests are taken on a tour of the garden to explain the menu. Estate maps and wellies are available for guests who would like to explore, and living areas face the kitchen, teasing what is to come. Each of the five adjoining bedrooms has a bespoke concrete bath and overlooks the estate's original kitchen garden, while the restaurant is fitted with handmade chairs and even locally made crockery using clay from the estate itself.
The menu is truly seasonal and governed by what is available, rather than the other way around. Dishes celebrate ingredients in their entirety, such as using the branches and leaves of the blackcurrant or imitating the life cycle of a fallow dear. Dinner is typically 15 courses, with drink pairings such as small-batch wines. Produce comes from the estate, or local, sustainable producers like Sole of Discretion or Paviland Farm.
For an immersive, 360-degree, 24-hour culinary experience, look no further. Grace & Savour's offering puts you as close to the action and origins of the food as possible, resulting in an unforgettable stay. Even better, city-dwellers can easily get here on foot - Grace & Savour is just a short walk from Hampton-in-Arden station, making this perfect for overnight city escapes.
