We’re in (again) The Michelin Guide 2019
We source from our own Crowborough Warren Estate
or local and trusted suppliers.
Welcome to The Warren Restaurant, an extension of The Crowborough Estate, holding stock of Sussex Cattle, Boer Goats, Fallow deer, and Wild boar amongst others which the restaurant draws on for its menu. Given the provenance, the kitchen predominantly cooks British food, occasionally dipping into other cuisines to provide a vehicle for flavours – nettle gnocchi for example, or poached oyster with wild boar chorizo.
Chris Fitt and Martin Haymes wanted a fun and informal restaurant, to offer their Crowborough Estate’s produce from. When the site of the renowned Signor Franco’s became available, with those iconic arched windows of its orangery and glorious terrace overlooking the Spa town, the stage was set.
The little-bit-quirky, but altogether classy decor reflects Chris’ and Martin’s creative touches. For some the restaurant has become a destination for special occasions but The Warren is casual and relaxed all the same. Whether with friends, family, colleagues, or just you and your special someone, there’s an excellent value lunch menu, cocktails or bubbles with snacks – in the bar or on the terrace, fabulous Sunday Roasts, and the a la carte available any other time.
Produce is at the heart of everything, the estate recently erected a polytunnel, to begin providing fruit, herbs, and vegetables in the coming seasons, along with heirloom, antique, and nostalgia varieties of crops . Wild ingredients such as nettles, dandelions, hogweed, wood sorrel, brambles, hawthorn, and ramsons are regularly coming into the kitchen from the estate through the seasons
