A marriage of classic and modern
The Ghyll Manor restaurant is a comfortable, light and relaxed space, marrying modern simplicity with a respect for original features, such as the decorated beams, and a sparingly applied Jacobean brocade.
Dining is modern European with a focus on quality ingredients matched classically but with a little creative flare keeping it fresh.
Dishes change seasonally and draw from the cornucopia of local produce and a changing wine list is selected to match the seasonality of the menu. The simple menu of four to five dishes for each course, has at least one well considered vegetarian option. Ghyll Manor restaurant is able to cater for other specific dietary requirements with prior notice.
A classic Sunday Lunch is served at Ghyll Manor restaurant between 12 and 2pm every Sunday. This again celebrates local produce and features both vegetarian options and options for those looking for lunch, but not Sunday Lunch.
Beyond the Restaurant
Afternoon Tea is also available from noon until 5pm daily. Perfect for sunny days on the patio overlooking the landscaped gardens, or in the conservatory or lounge on less clement days. The tea is the traditional three tiers of fruit scones, sandwiches, cakes and pastries with tea by Brighton’s own Hoogly Tea Co., or for a little extra you can celebrate with a glass of Champagne too.
For a more relaxed dining experience the Conservatory and Bar provide a classic selection of small and larger bar meals including burgers, salads, wraps and soups. This is an especially pleasing find for winter months, if winding up a day on the Sussex countryside; best enjoyed by the open fire in the deep comfy sofas of the bar. The conservatory and bar are also open for those dining at the Ghyll Manor restaurant to bookend their visit, or in deed for anyone looking for somewhere timeless and beautiful to enjoy a drink.
