The Blind Five

Single Leaf

the popular menu for adventurous diners like you

Sometimes on a weeknight all you want is to pop out for a bite to eat. You want a creative menu, cooked with seasonal ingredients, by skilled chefs. But you don’t want this to break the bank balance. We don’t think that’s too much to ask.

In comes THE BLIND FIVE, an adventurous menu for diners like you. Put yourself in the hands of Rob for a surprise five course tasting menu. Every Thursday Rob will choose which dishes from the menu he’ll be cooking for this simple, original and delicious dinner.

Crucially? It’s £45 per person, with a carafe of wine on tap for £12.

Sam Olive’s series of Wine Schools continue with intimate tastings that explore hot topics in the world of natural wine. The line up looks as follows:
Comfort vs Adventure
Are you choosing comfort over a life of adventure? Do you always make that easy, familiar choice every time you pluck a bottle off the shelf? Fear not, we’re here to lead you astray! This month we’re going off the beaten track and into another dimension of uncharted wine regions and other worldly grapes. Some weird, yes, but all completely wonderful, all organic and mostly grapes and countries you know well – just for point of reference. We’re hoping this wine club will help you jump outside the box and try something different the next time you’re confronted with that wall of wine in Tesco!
Taking place in the (by then!) newly opened Manor Cottage. A larger wine school with BBQ from the Big Green Eggs – a real experience and not one to miss!
Friday 13th July, 7-9pm, £40pp to include a hot meal and wine.

Our traditional wedding package has been given a winter facelift for January and February 2019. Fur + Fire is the all-inclusive package that embraces the elements and celebrates the fact that this Manor was made for winter.

The Courtyard will be filled with floating candles, hanging baubles, wintery twigs, pussy willow. Blankets line the chiavari chairs, and outside..? The Fur + Fire tipi awaits, with its own burning fire in the middle and seating lined with furs. The Hot Chocolate Bar will serve up hot chocolates, marshmallows and s’mores. Why not add in an acoustic set or fireside boardgames? A sparkler run will bring your guests back into the Courtyard for the evening party.

Would you like the icing on the wedding cake? Everything is just £135 per guest, our late availability price for Jan-Feb 2019. Call 01675 446 080 for more.

*The normal cost of this package would be £3750 and is complimentary for these exclusive few weeks.

*Styling includes 100 church candles, 20 hanging baubles on 3 gold stands, vases of wintery twigs and floating candles in cylinder vases. You can add your own flowers at your own expense to customise the look (in the image below, foliage and flowers have been added on top of the gold stands). Hanging baubles can only be used on long tables due to the structure, as shown below.


We’re planning the foodiest of Christmases this year. The Lobby will be piled high with clementines and mince pies, Rob’s take on the Jaffa Cake will debut as an after dinner treat and we even hear rumour of cheesy gifts…

As usual we’ll be inviting you over for Christmas Eve dinner, Village Christmas Eve carols and Christmas Day lunch. However, Rob and Steve are currently working away on a menu which combines the Christmas must-haves with Peel’s Restaurant’s fresh surprises. This menu will be available for all of your private events: lunchtime family feasts, corporate evening shin-digs and director dinners.

We’ll be releasing all the details later in the summer, but give us an email with your requirements to save a date!
