Private dining

In over five decades we have established a renowned and excellent reputation with our guests to be the venue of choice for life's celebrations and special occasions. It is our constant aim and our great pride to ensure that all events are executed with impeccable service, delicious food and an unforgettable ambiance in a beautiful environment.

We have two private dining rooms within the manor at Gravetye, seating up to sixteen or up to twenty persons respectively. Both beautifully wood panelled and in keeping with the rest of the manor, both rooms offer that exclusive, private feel which will ensure an extra special occasion.

Depending on what your party size might be, there are a variety of options available in terms of the dining experience. For further information on menus, availability and pricing, please contact our Event Co-ordinator Jess Hall on 01342 810567 or jess@gravetyemanor.co.uk

Private Dining in the gardens at Gravetye Manor

The gardens and grounds surrounding the manor are without doubt the jewel in our crown. It is with pleasure that we are therefore able to offer a variety of ‘outdoor’ dining options for small parties and private groups.

The Pavilion

Our tented Pavilions are situated on the long lawn at Gravetye. These Pavilions offer the perfect setting for larger groups to enjoy the best that Gravetye has to offer in the Summer months. The Pavilions make the most of views over the surrounding countryside, as well as the formal flower garden and the Manor house itself. Available for 12-48 people, May to September.

          

The Gazebo

Our oak gazebo is situated in the beautiful little garden here at Gravetye. Fantastic views down over the meadow to our lake can be enjoyed from this spot situated in front of the Manor. You will also enjoy use of our terrace area, just outside the sheltered gazebo. Available for 8-12 people, May to September.

          

The Summer House

The Summer house was built in 1902 by Ernest George who was a friend of William Robinson and a teacher of the architect Edwin Lutyens. It is situated at the end of the flower garden looking back towards the house with views over the valley and the lake. The two side walls are glazed and the front is open, giving a welcome shade from the sun and protection from the summer breeze. Available for 6 people, May to September.

    Head Chef George gets excited about the raspberries from our kitchen garden this month, read on for his raspberry vinegar recipe…
We all had a fabulous evening at the Manor. Thank you enormously for your advice, help, and reassurance in the lead up to the day. The food was wonderful and everyone was extremely helpful and attentive: the attention to detail was brilliant. Certainly if we have cause to celebrate in the same way again, Gravetye would be at the top of our list as the venue.

I was privileged to have my birthday celebration lunch at Gravetye and I feel impelled to write to you to say what a wonderfully enjoyable experience it was for myself, my husband and all our guests. Your staff are truly amazing.

We have over the years held various events to celebrate special occasions … but none even approached the success of last Sunday’s Lunch! All the staff, without exception, went ‘beyond the call of duty’ and so made the lunch a very special occasion for us.

We had a really lovely afternoon with you and would like to commend all the staff involved with our lunch. The service was excellent and so was the food. So do thank everyone who made the lunch so special. We will definitely be back!

My thanks for yesterday. The day went perfectly and the arrangements were faultless, from being welcomed at the door to our eventual departure. The meals and wines were of the highest standard and augmented by the immaculate and completely professional service from your colleagues, who were never over-attentive but never far away, and always responsive. It is very difficult to add more than that to be honest.
