The Manor Restaurant: The stunning wood-panelled Manor Restaurant has been voted fifth most romantic restaurant in Britain by The Times and accorded two rosettes by the AA. With its massive open fireplace and superb views overlooking the gardens, the wonderful ambience is enhanced by a pianist playing the grand piano at lunch and dinner every day. The menus change according to the seasons and market availability with innovative and varied dishes using Channel caught fish; game from Eastwell Estate and Godmersham; locally reared lamb, beef and rare-breed pork, together with Kent grown vegetables. All are complemented by the scrumptious desserts and petits fours that are also made in the Manor’s kitchen.
Private Dining: The outstanding food produced by the Manor’s kitchen can also be served in one of our exclusive wood-panelled private dining suites which are ideal for a private party or special occasion for groups of 2 to 80 people; your guests will feel utterly privileged.
Afternoon Tea: Afternoon tea is served in the Great Hall and lounges every day. Each delicious cake, patisserie and scone is produced by our pastry chefs. The scones are served with jams and curds which are also made in-house. Choose from a wide selection of speciality teas.
The Pavilion Restaurant: The less formal Pavilion Restaurant is ideal for families and groups of friends or colleagues. Open 7 days a week from 7:00 to 21:30 (last orders), the Pavilion serves breakfast, snacks, afternoon tea, drinks, lunch or dinner with seasonal menus designed by Byron. The dishes are made in-house using the freshest and best local produce.
The Manor Bar offers an excellent range of cocktails and spirits including an impressive selection of whiskies. The wine list in both restaurants is extensive and varied with wines from classic wine regions and the New World.
