Mannings Heath Estate near Horsham in West Sussex has opened a delightful new Wine Lounge and Vineyard Kitchen Restaurant. Your Sussex Wedding editor, Kelly Andrews, went along to find out more.
The stylish and welcoming spaces here offer guests a memorable dining experience that'll have you going back for more! There are a wealth of dining options such as lunch and afternoon tea, including a range of food and wine pairings featuring wines from Benguela Cover Lagoon Wine Estate in South Africa, which I can highly recommend.
Penny Streeter OBE is the owner of the Benguela Collection wine and hospitatlity group, which includes Mannings Heath Estate and nearby Leonardslee Lakes and Gardens, as well as the Benguela Cover vineyards. "The new Wine Lounge is the cellar door of the award-winning Benguela Cove wines," says Barry Anderson, estate managing director. Indeed, the wine theme has been carried throughout the new dining areas, which cater to a range of events including hen parties and intimate weddings. The Wine Lounge can accommodate 24 guests, while the Vineyard Kitchen Restaurant seats up to 50, with comfortable sofa seating available in both areas.
With an oh-so modern palette of soft sage green, these spaces also feature subtle nods to the property's heritage via the fittings and features. Combined with the ample outdoor space and breathtaking views, this is the perfect spot to celebrate any event, from raising a glass to the arrival of the weekend to gathering for your nuptials.
The venue will be hosting a wedding showcase open day on Sunday 1st October, 2023. So, keep your eyes on the website for further details to be released nearer the time: www.manningsheath.com
