‘Stunning’, ‘Amazing’, ‘Incredible’: words that customers, new and old, are using to describe the spectacular new Michelin-starred restaurant at Gravetye Manor.
Built in 1598, Gravetye Manor celebrates its 60th anniversary as a luxury country house hotel by opening a new restaurant innovatively designed by Charles Knowles Design, with views out to the historic gardens created by the late, great William Robinson.
“The vision was for guests to appear as if they were eating the wonderful garden produce of Gravetye within the garden itself, in the context of a luxuriously and discreetly designed interior” – Charles Knowles
The interior layout has been designed to create personal space and intimacy, with luxurious banquette seating enclosed by oak dwarf walls. A light maple acoustic ceiling keeps noise levels to a muted but buzzy level reflecting the serenity of the surroundings. The 200-year-old reclaimed Versailles pattern oak floor perfectly befits the style of the Manor. The atmosphere is enhanced by innovative, subtle lighting specified by lighting consultants Ingine. 38 DRX5 motorised luminaires are remotely directed onto every table, providing quick and easy adjustments between servings, and giving full flexibility at the touch of a button.
