Gravetye Head Chef George Blogg

Only 3 weeks have passed since I started here at Gravetye and I am extremely excited about what the future holds.  It is a privilege to be part of a team that is so driven and passionate in trying to produce the best possible experience for our guests.  The food offering ingredients wise will be determined by seasonality, our own kitchen garden, what we can gather ourselves from the estate, and the best produce that local and British suppliers have to offer.   That is an obvious choice, but the interesting element for me is how those fantastic ingredients will be interpreted on the plate.  I look forward to developing the menus to really reflect the wonderful surroundings and natural setting that make Gravetye so special. My initial focus has been on our Lounge and Garden Menu which I am happy to share with you below.  It is divided into four sections; Grown in our Kitchen Garden, Foraged from the Land, Showcasing Local Suppliers and From the Smoke House.

Lounge and Garden Menu

This all day dining menu is created for our residents to enjoy in a less formal manner within our beautiful gardens or sitting rooms. Available between the hours of 10am and 10pm it offers a lighter alternative to our restaurant options and is served with a basket of homemade bread and butter.
