English Wine Fair at Updown

Join us at Updown on Saturday 22nd June at our first English Wine Festival. The day kicks off with a relaxed tasting, featuring seven of our favourite producers showing a selection of their wines for you to try. The tasting will be in the beautiful garden and grounds of Updown, which you’re welcome to explore at your leisure.

Following the tasting, we’ll all sit down for lunch on long tables in the garden restaurant and pergola. Our winemakers will all be selling bottles at shop price to enjoy with lunch.

Kent is leading the way in the amazing frontier of English wine production and we can’t wait to introduce you to some of the best bottles around.

Participants include:

Every Wednesday

Steak Night

Sample Menu

Wednesdays have always been an intimate set up at Updown, but with the warmer weather inbound we thought it would be jolly to swing the doors wide open and make Wednesdays a bit of a party. And so Steak Night seems like the ideal mid week pick me up to get us all through to the weekend. The simple 3 course set menu priced at £30 per person including a beautiful 45 day aged Aberdeen Angus rump steak.

Jerusalem Artichoke Soup with Brown Butter & Hazelnuts

Rump Steak, Garlic Butter, Mushrooms & Gratin Dauphinoise

or for two

Beef, Carrot & Stout Pie with New Potatoes & Cabbage

Caramelised Rice Pudding with Rhubarb
