Harvest Restaurant

The Flint Barns Harvest pop-up Restaurant returns from Tuesday 4th to Sunday 30th October. The menu, curated and cooked by Estate Head Chef Chris Bailey and his team, uses ingredients guided by the season, Sussex region and inspired by the Vineyard. This year we’ll be serving a mix of lunchtime small plates and an exciting set dinner menu where you can tuck into a choice of seasonal dishes. Cooked to order by our chefs, both experiences offer a sharing element in the spirit of harvest feasting! View the sample menus linked below for more details.

Expect the finest seasonal produce available from the land, sea and garden of the British Isles.
