Useful information


The 240 acre, Grade I listed Leonardslee Lakes and Gardens were first planted in 1801 and are famous today for their azaleas, rhododendrons and even a wallaby colony. They are now run by the owner of a South African vineyard, who has also restored the Grade II listed Italianate mansion where you’ll find this intimate, elegant restaurant.
Both the Executive Chef and the Head Chef hail from South Africa, but the surprise tasting menu of 17+ courses keeps its focus firmly on the local area, with produce foraged from the garden or sourced nearby. Skilfully crafted dishes show good balance in their textures and flavours, and take on a creative, original style. They also produce their own gin for the aperitifs and offer wines from their Benguela Cove Lagoon Wine Estate in The Cape.
Elegant bedrooms fuse the finest British design with a mix of vintage and contemporary art. - MICHELIN guide inspectors
