What we do when...
Dinner – Choice Menu
Peel's Tuesday to Saturday
Food and drink is at the centre of what we do, with Michelin starred, four AA rosette Peel’s restaurant running as the living heart of the building. We take you off the beaten track with our seasonal, hand crafted, and local products and produce.
Head Chef Rob Palmer creates simple dishes using seasonal produce, often picked from the Manor’s own kitchen gardens, cooked using modern techniques. His aim is not to alienate his guests by presenting them with something unrecognisable on a plate. Instead he looks to the seasons and to our Victorian roots to present utterly English menus.
Peel’s restaurant is open Tuesday to Saturday for dinner reservations from 7pm-9pm.
The Parlour Daily
Once Hampton Manor’s best kept secret, our afternoon teas in the Parlour have fast become a local institution. In 2016 the deal was sealed as it won Best Afternoon Tea at the Birmingham Food, Drink and Hospitality Awards. Peel’s Restaurant chefs pick each season’s best produce to create a refreshing yet all out indulgent menu. Our resident tea expert, Nathan, guides you through the Lalani tea trolly to discover rare single-batch teas prepared… well, down to a tea! We’ll also introduce you to Nyetimber English sparkling, local craft beers, and cocktails crafted by bar manager Loic.
At the weekend our afternoon teas are expanded to include canapés and additional sweet treats (including a cookies and cream finale!), so you can pass the day away lounging in our pastel coated Parlour.
Fred's Monday to Friday
Newly appointed Wine Director, Sam Olive, and Sommelier, Ross Morton, are working towards a wine list that showcases the best of the ‘natural’ wine movement. Usually organic, often biodynamic, but always reflecting the fruit in the field.
Sam talks about ‘Back to the Future Wines’ produced by forward thinking winemakers; creators of quality wines made from eco-friendly, delicious and happy grapes that evoke their origin. We want to appeal to a sense of adventure and take guests off the beaten track where great value wines can be enjoyed.
Our wines by the glass capture this philosophy perfectly, and a new and progressive wine list format is being prepared for launch in January 2017. We’ve also got plans in the pipeline to develop our cellars into Sam’s wine haven, the perfect place to promote his business, Wine Freedom.
Private Dining Options Available 7 days a week...
The Tasting Room
Peel's All Week
Provides a unique experience of our kitchen and cellar. Up to eight guests can enjoy a unique view of their food being prepared whilst enjoying the intimacy of our oak panelled private dining room. The tasting room is an opportunity to experience the craftsmanship and spirit of our kitchen.
For his tasting menus Head Chef Rob always starts with a garden dish. Our walled kitchen garden is still a work in progress but much of his inspiration comes from what’s sprouting in here. Seasonal tomatoes, asparagus, beetroot, give a refreshing start to the tasting menu. Mains are determined by the seasons once again, whether it’s a colourful lavender duck and carrot in the summer or mallard, celeriac and salt pear in game season. With all of Rob’s tasting menus he wants to create a sense of cohesion; he sees no point in placing seven completely irrelevant dishes in sequence to his guests, no matter how exquisite!
The tasting room is available for reservations for both lunch and dinner seven days a week. Bespoke wine pairing packages are available and can be tailored to any budgets.
