Restaurants & Caterers
We’re blessed with many fine local Sussex restaurants and food professionals just a short distance from our vineyard…
The Curlew, Bodiam
The Curlew is a Grade II listed former coaching inn set in picture-postcard Sussex countryside. It boasts an unmissable white clapboard façade and views across the fields.
The team have created a space to be enjoyed and shared with everyone. They encourage ordering for the table and trying a bit of everything on the menu.
The Small Holding, Cranbrook
Their menus are defined by the seasons by working with ingredients directly from their own farm or other growers in our region. The Small Holding is a real Sussex experience.
The menu changes everyday and is served in a multi course dining experience for both lunch and dinner.

The White Dog Inn
The Castle Inn, Bodiam
Opposite Bodiam Castle in the beautiful East Sussex countryside, there’s another local legend – The Castle Inn. A warm, welcoming and traditional pub, The Castle is the perfect place to find fine food and exceptional ales in Robertsbridge, and rounds off a trip to Bodium Castle in style. Food here is all freshly prepared, using locally sourced produce wherever possible. Even the children’s menu is all homemade, making The Castle Inn the ideal choice for a memorable family meal or a weekend breakfast.
It’s a special spot for a quiet drink too though – never more so than in summer, when the sun shines on the large terraced garden at the back of the pub.

Our very own award-winning Hobbit House accommodation on-site is of course our main recommendation. But we would also recommend the welcome offered by these charming hotels and guesthouses…
