Location and contact

A Grade II-listed building which dates back to 1852, Burley Manor adds modern eccentricity to the historic appeal of the setting. With antique furniture joined by unusual artwork and roaring fires, food is served in a simple and stylish, yet unique dining room. Savour seasonal ingredients from across the British Isles, crafted into a range of Mediterranean dishes, many cooked in the wood-fired oven.
