The Small Restaurant

The Small Restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily with all bookings by appointment. There is seating both inside the Manor House and on the patio beside the hotel gardens. A classic menu with refined seasonal dishes elevating the best in local produce is served alongside choice wines from the valley.

Rose Ashby of the esteemed Spring Restaurant at Somerset House in London wrote the first menu for The Small Restaurant, scouring the valley to source the finest producers of local ingredients and designed the menu to offer simple, sophisticated and strictly seasonal Italian-inspired dishes.

The Restaurant’s major artwork is the bold, graphic and abstract tapestry weave from Renée Rossouw, who drew inspiration from her own nostalgic relationship with the hotel’s surrounding landscape.
