Our magical conservatory restaurant is set amid Updown’s rambling grounds. Dine under the grape vines surrounded by beautiful 17th century brick and watch the chefs in the open kitchen tending to the wood fired grill and original farm house bread oven. The restaurant has been completely transformed by owners Ruth and Oli to be heated and fully enclosed and is open year round.

Monday – Tuesday (Closed)

Menus will be small, hyper seasonal and use the best of local and European produce and change on regular basis to reflect what’s best. Everything is cooked over wood in the open kitchen. There is a short list of exciting wines of limited availability, local beers and seasonal cocktails.

Our wine list is a mix of winemakers we’ve loved for years and some newer finds from smaller producers. It is very much influenced by the food with a heavy Italian influence mixed with some French and some locally produced wines.
Similarly our drinks list draws heavily on the Italian aperitivo tradition, with cocktails predominantly based on bitters and vermouths and non alcoholic drinks such as Crodino on offer. We use produce from the garden when in season for drinks such as a Lemon Verbena Spritz or Ginger Rosemary Sour.
