Residents and non-residents are welcome to dine at breakfast, lunch or dinner; and the manor is also the perfect place to a enjoy morning coffee, legendary Sunday lunch or a pretty impressive (if we do say so ourselves) afternoon cream tea. Our dishes are updated according to the season and what's fresh that day. Contact us to find out more.



“There is no love sincerer... than the love of food.”
- George Bernard Shaw. 
So come and enjoy the relaxing and warm ambience of our
lovely newly refurbished restaurant, where you’ll be tempted by a variety of delicious dishes, all beautifully presented with carefully selected ingredients and complimentary flavours.

Why not relax with a pre-dinner drink in the contemporary bar,
or if the sun is shining, on the terrace overlooking the beautiful
gardens – Pimms anyone? Then, after your visit, you’ll be able
to set your own pace – curl up in the cosy library lounge, or
simply explore.

The restaurant offers a quintessentially British menu with CSMA_Dining_2015.jpg, 6495x4864pxdaily
specials incorporating the best locally available produce.
Inspiration is taken from the flavours of the season, and a clear
philosophy to concentrate on excellent quality and simple
ingredients, giving a twist to some classic dishes. Delights 
you may find on the menu include linguine with tiger prawns, Surrey farm pork chop, and a wonderful English spring lamb chops.

Matt Hancock, Head Chef says, “We have always strived to deliver to our guests simple, beautifully presented dishes, allowing the quality of the ingredients to really speak for themselves. Seasonal, fresh flavours are for us, what great food is all about.”


The restaurant itself is open daily for lunch and dinner where you can choose from menus that offer traditional classics served with a contemporary twist. Bookings are recommended.
