SquareMeal Review of Gravetye Manor

Silver Award

Although it’s situated close to Gatwick Airport, this enchanting Elizabethan manor feels a world away from the rat race, surrounded by 1,000 acres of fields, forests and its own stunning gardens (designed by Victorian horticulturist William Robinson). Inside, it’s a picture of cosseting luxury, with a gracious wood-panelled dining room at the heart of things and SquareMeal ‘rising star’ George Blogg in the kitchen. Expect stunningly creative and “utterly delicious” Michelin-starred seasonal assemblages ranging from slow-cooked pheasant eggs with cured pork fat, roasted pink fir potato salad and sorrel yoghurt to crown and faggot of local wood pigeon with pointed cabbage, preserved blackberries and brassica flowers or charcoal-flamed native lobster with baby carrot, bronze fennel and buttermilk sauce. After that, what could be more calendar-friendly than apple-blossom custard with rhubarb sponge and ginger beer? There’s also a more casual all-day ‘lounge and garden menu’ divided into categories such as ‘from our own smokehouse’. Gravetye’s wine list is a real aristocrat, with fine pedigree on every page, and the place also earns bonus points for its “impeccable service, warm ambience and very clever cocktails”.

A friend of mine comes here regularly for Sunday lunch which he says is excellent and I can believe it, what a great venue for Sunday lunch! the longest drive way I have ever been down leading you to a manor house built, I was told, for the most part at the turn of the last century in fabulous grounds. Inside you get lots of wood panelling, all of which came apparently from the estate, the staff in case you think I conducted some in depth research, are the font of all knowledge. I was there in the evening for a farewell diner for a colleague. The log fires were burning bright and the only thing missing were fellow guests. The sitting room and bar are places you could happily spend hours on your won just soaking up the atmostphere and the heat. The dining room on the other hand is a room that needs people. The menu, both set menu and a la carte, are the kind that get your pulse racing, its fare that you get in only a handful of places, very imaginative with a wonderful local and seasonal feel to it. The food is beautifully presented and is as good as any I have had, wonderful. The wine list is, like many, too French, and its tough to find value under £40 a bottle. Setting aside the misunderstanding on the Rully – I asked for the white not the red which they didn't have – was very good. It's not cheap but you will be hard pressed to eat better food anywhere and I suspect my good friend Mr Jones is right, a very good place to come and have a leisurely Sunday lunch.
