Since 2018 we’ve been inviting some of the UK’s top chefs to Gusbourne to share their Michelin-starred talents in our intimate garden room, overlooking the vineyards where our wines are made. This year, we’re delighted to announce that some of our leading restaurant partners have once again agreed to take over the kitchen at Gusbourne, offering our customers a unique opportunity to taste their exceptional dishes at The Nest. We will be welcoming The Hand and Flowers, Trinity, The Fordwich Arms and Restaurant Story over the course of the spring and summer.
Each restaurant will serve one lunch and one dinner sitting. As a guest, you will start with a wander in the vines with canapés and an aperitif before sitting down for a bespoke multi-course meal served with Gusbourne sparkling and limited-edition wines.
To reserve your place for these incredibly special experiences, visit our booking calendar on your chosen event below. Our Hand & Flowers and Restaurant Story lunch and dinner have now sold out, but there are a small number of places available for our Trinity and Fordwich Arms events, as well as the extra special Hand & Flowers Lunch and Vineyard Tour Experience too.
