Private Dining

Making it special

Experience the unforgettable thrill of private dining at Gravetye in one of our impressive wood panelled rooms.

Our event spaces provide an impeccably English background to any occasion. They offer a warm and relaxing setting perfect for a family gathering, a celebration lunch with friends or a more formal business dinner.

Our Private Dining delivers the personal touch from start to finish. Our dedicated Events Team provides assistance at every step of planning your event. From choosing the perfect date to creating personalised display table plans, place cards and individual menu cards for each of your guests. You will also benefit from the undivided attention of our team on the day, allowing you to sit back and unwind with the rest of your party.

With the changing of the seasons, indulge in a three-course menu carefully designed by our Executive Head Chef, who takes inspiration from the produce in our Kitchen Garden to produce a Michelin starred dining experience.

We offer two event spaces; The Private Dining Room is suitable for smaller parties of 7 to 10 guests where your guests will be seated on a round table. The Panelled Room offers space for up to 20 guests, seated on one large oval table with one of our beautiful feature fireplaces.

At Gravetye Manor we are able to offer Afternoon Tea for groups all year round, priced at £65 per person. 

Enjoy a glass of Nyetimber English Sparkling Wine on arrival followed by a selection of sandwiches, scones, cakes and pastries made freshly by our talented team of pastry chefs. 

Step into the tranquillity of our Oak Gazebo from May to September where you will be nestled in our Little Garden, with views of the lush meadows and lake. This makes the perfect venue for groups of 6 to 12 guests where you will be seated around a beautifully handcrafted Oak table.

From October to April, Afternoon Tea will be served in one of our Private Dining rooms, making the perfect cosy setting in the colder months. This option is possible for between 6 to 10 guests, subject to availability.
