Seasonal Vineyard Dining for every Occasion

Dining at our Vineyard restaurant allows you to experience food created with wine pairings in mind from chefs with a unique understanding of produce and flavour. We strive to offer unique experiences as much as the unforgettable food and world-class wines. Our dining options offer something for all occasions and change throughout the year as we love to celebrate seasonality and the best British produce available. From our popular summer al fresco dining to the Harvest Pop-Up vineyard Restaurant, there’s always something new to try at Rathfinny.

Why not book a table in the award-winning Tasting Room after a tour and wine tasting to finish off your visit in style? Or perhaps the homely atmosphere of The Flint Barns Dining Room is best suited for dinner with friends and family.

Talented Visionary Chefs

Our stunning seasonal menus are expertly crafted by our Wine Estate Head Chef, Chris Bailey and his talented team. The dishes are inspired by the relationships we’ve built with British farmers and suppliers as well as the food-friendly nature of our wines and the Sussex region. Our chefs are the driving force behind the success of our Vineyard restaurants, with dynamic menus that frequently change based on the season’s best produce. Dining at our Tasting Room Winery restaurant is a must for wine and food lovers. 

Dining on a Vineyard

Our Vineyard is located in the South Downs National Park, in East Sussex, where its unique climate and chalky soil create ideal grape-growing conditions. This is an ideal spot to enjoy the rolling vistas and warm climate. The Tasting Room offers incredible views across the Vineyard and wider estate which creates a unique dining experience, whereas the Flint Barns Dining Room feels cosy and remote. There is something very special about enjoying great wine and great food in such a special place.
