Gravetye Manor to close Michelin restaurant for a refurb

Related tags: Manor house

Gravetye Manor in Sussex is to close for a major refurbishment of its Michelin-starred restaurant in the New Year.

Both the West Hoathly hotel and restaurant, run by head chef George Blogg, will shut on 2 January until early May 2018.

The redevelopment will see the installation of floor to ceiling windows overlooking the property’s 35-acre gardens, as well as more banquette and free-standing seating.

The Elizabethan manor house dates back to 1598 and was one of Britain’s first country house hotels.

It lost its Michelin star in 2008 after 11 years and was bought out of administration​ in 2010. But the property won back its star in 2015 under Blogg and its new owners​.

We are excited to see the new restaurant at Gravetye Manor finally come to fruition,” says owner Elizabeth Hosking.

​By marrying contemporary design with a historic building and showcasing the beauty of our iconic gardens, the new space will bring the outside in and offer the perfect stage for George’s modern British food, that puts the spotlight on seasonal, homegrown produce from the Manor’s 1.5 acre Victorian walled kitchen garden.”
