The Michelin-starred restaurant is led by head chef George Blogg who will over the renovation alongside managing director Andrew Thomason.

The architect on the project will be Sir Charles Knowles, while the interiors will be headed up by designer Claire Nelson, whose recent projects include Elystan Street and The Ledbury.

A key focus of the new design will be ensuring the restaurant integrates with the Grade-II listed, 35-acre gardens via floor to ceiling glass walls with views of the hotel’s vista.

Banquette and free-standing seating will feature next to bespoke artwork following the natural theme.

Owner, Elizabeth Hosking comments: “We are excited to see the new restaurant at Gravetye Manor finally come to fruition. By marrying contemporary design with a historic building and showcasing the beauty of our iconic gardens, the new space will bring the outside in and offer the perfect stage for George’s Modern British food, which puts the spotlight on seasonal, homegrown produce from the Manor’s 1.5 acre Victorian walled kitchen garden.”
