The beautiful surroundings and period interiors of Prested Hall make it a very popular choice for people choosing their wedding venue in Essex. However, we know that many people love to dine at The Hall, whether they are residents on a romantic or business break or locals who hold Prested close to their hearts.

Now is your chance to join us on selected days for our new informal dining at The Hall!


Dining at Prested

The majority of our produce is locally sourced.  We stick to seasonal produce wherever possible, which means fish from The Little Fish Company in Kelvedon, plenty of soft fruits grown by small independent growers in nearby Ardleigh in Summer, and top class meat from our local butchers in Witham.

In the summer months, eating al fresco by the side of the 15th century moat is popular, or in the Garden room with the doors open to allow a gentle breeze to circulate.   In cooler months the warm interiors of the Oak room or Orangery provide a lovely backdrop to great food.

Dining is available Monday to Saturday from 12pm – 8pm. We kindly advise you to contact us in advance as there are many dates this summer where we are holding exclusive hire events and as such cannot open our restaurant to the public. Booking preferred due to limited numbers, please contact us on the details below.
