Since 2018 Gusbourne has been inviting some of the UK’s top chefs to share their Michelin-starred talents in the estate’s intimate garden room, overlooking the vineyards where the wines are made.
This year, Gusbourne is delighted to announce that some of its leading restaurant partners have once again agreed to take over the kitchen, offering its customers a unique opportunity to taste their exceptional dishes at The Nest.
Gusbourne will be welcoming The Hand and Flowers, Trinity, The Fordwich Arms, and Restaurant Story over the course of the spring and summer.
Each restaurant will serve one lunch and one dinner sitting. Guests start with a wander in the vines with canapés and an aperitif before sitting down for a bespoke multi-course meal served with Gusbourne sparkling and limited-edition wines.
To reserve your place for these incredibly special experiences, visit the booking calendar on your chosen event below. The Hand & Flowers and Restaurant Story lunch and dinner have now sold out, but there are a small number of places available for the Trinity and Fordwich Arms events, as well as the extra special Hand & Flowers Lunch and Vineyard Tour Experience.
