The Courtyard Restaurant
Our award winning Courtyard Restaurant offers a choice of menus in an elegant Dining Room overlooking our gardens and the farmland beyond.
All dishes are freshly prepared by our Head Chef Dennis and his team with herbs from our own Herb Garden and extensive use of local Hampshire and Berkshire produce.
Our competitively priced weekday lunch menu includes a choice of dishes with a glass of wine, while on Sundays we have our ever popular Sunday Buffet Lunch.
Traditional English Afternoon Tea is becoming very popular with an extensive selection of teas, a selection of finger sandwiches, cakes and scones with jam and clotted cream plus the option to add a glass of champagne for that special celebration
Dining at Esseborne is a real treat with pre-dinner drinks and canapés in the bar or on the patio, a meal in the elegant dining room accompanied by freshly baked home made bread and a fine selection of wines all finished off with coffee and petit fours in the lounge.
During the Summer, meals are available for Al Fresco dining on our Patio.
