Dining at Prested

The majority of our produce is locally sourced, none more so than that which comes from our own kitchen garden.  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 Thursday from 12pm – 8pm and Friday & Saturday from 12pm – 8.30pm. Booking preferred due to limited numbers, please contact us on the details below.

At this time tables will be limited to two households with a maximum of six guests, following government guidelines. Tables will be allocated outside whenever possible and will be appropriately distanced.
