English Wine Dinner
English Wine Tasting & 6-Course Michelin-Starred Dinner - LIMITED NUMBER OF DINNER ONLY RESERVATIONS STILL AVAILABLE!
Join us on Wednesday 9th October from 6.30 pm for a quintessentially English evening spent tasting wines from some of our country’s finest vineyards and Estates, together with a sublime six-course Michelin-starred dinner devised by Chef Frances Atkins.
Wines on the evening herald from right here in Yorkshire all the way to the Flint Vineyards in Norfolk and the Gusbourne Estate, Appledore, in Kent. The soil and climate suits the production of sparkling wines as well as the Bacchus grape which is forging a niche as potentially England`s finest white varietal. The Pinot Noir suits the cooler and wetter climate, producing wines to challenge those of Burgundy in northern France.
Wondering if an English wine can really rival the fine French? The French wine producers are so worried that they have invested in vineyards in Kent and Sussex particularly.
Our dinner with accommodation bookings have sold out for this event, however we currently have a limited number of DINNER ONLY RESERVATIONS AVAILABLE which will include the six-course tasting menu with six tasting wines at £230 for two people (£115 per person).

More About Our English Vineyards
Based in the sunny and sheltered Waveney Valley in south Norfolk, winemaker Ben Witchell crafts wines using a blend of innovation and a respect for tradition.
Flint Vineyard’s Bacchus 2017 has been named by The Independent as Indy Best Buy English Still Wine 2018 and included in The Times Top 50 White Wines.
The original Gusbourne Estate in Appledore, Kent dates back to 1410. The de Goosebourne family crest was made up of three geese and can be found in their local parish church in Appledore – nowadays, each and every bottle of wine crafted at Gusbourne carries a contemporary goose crest in honour of its heritage. This ‘Goosemark’ is a symbol of trust, representing their pursuit of uncompromising quality.
During your English Wine Dinner, you will have the chance to try the very first wines from Yorkshire producer, Dunesforde. Dunesforde was initially inspired by the vineyards of Tuscany, where local Yorkshireman James Townsend saw first-hand the skill and passion needed to produce quality wines during his time at Castello di Potentino.
The whole ethos of Dunesforde Vineyard is to get the community involved. Throughout the process so far they received support from many villagers, some of them retired, who were intrigued with what was happening in their village. The vineyard’s aim is to produce a range of outstanding cool climate wines.
