The table is set for you to make memorable moments together. Hampton Manor is the home to Peel’s restaurant. We’ve reimagined country house dining to bring you a unique experience free of fuss and formality. Our tasting menus are inspired by our victorian walled garden and paired with wines from our award winning list.
THE MAIN EVENT
The Manor’s original dining room hosted its first feast back in 1855. Today it has been lovingly restored to create a rare combination of historic features and modern design that make it the perfect setting to cherish precious time together. We bring to the table the best from this island’s farms and fishermen.
THE WINE LIST
Winner of the AA Wine List of the Year for the United Kingdom 2019
We champion small production winemakers who handcraft wines. Each course of our menu offers wines marked with story and passion. Good soil makes for great wine which is why organic and biodynamic winemakers take centre stage on our list. We’re also proud to introduce you to the pioneering wine makers of England and Wales.
THE TASTING ROOM
Our most sought after table in the house brings you into the heart of the action offering a night of theatre. An opportunity to see our chefs at work from the comfort of your own private dining room. Reservations for 4-8 guests. 8 Course menu only £150.
THE KITCHEN GARDEN
The Manor’s walled garden was completed in 1891. Designed by Thomas Mawson, the first President of the Landscape Institute, it marked a way of life that had flourished in the Victorian Era. We let the garden to plate philosophy shape the way we develop our menus.
DINNER AT OUR HOUSE
Dinner at our house is more than just a seat at the table. It’s an invitation to settle in for the evening. After dinner let the evening linger fireside in The Parlour, have a game of pool in Fred’s Bar or a whisky at the Maker’s Table.
Our chefs are homegrown. Head Chef, Darren Meacham, has been with us since he was a young lad. He was sous chef when we won a Michelin Star and 4 AA rosettes in 2016 putting the Manor firmly on the map. After a stint exploring other ambitious kitchens, he has now returned home to take up the reins as head chef. He cooks with focus and restraint delivering produce led tasting menus in a modern British style.
This is a kitchen where we care about creativity and mentorship. Darren leads a young team with a firm but gentle hand, a far cry from shouting kitchens of the past. Alongside him is Stuart Deeley as development chef, winner of Masterchef the Professionals 2019, who runs The Stuart Deeley Chef Academy at local Halesowen College. Sous Chef Monty Stonehewer has lived the story. He joined us for experience in his final year of college and stayed on to become sous chef at just 23.
