Food at Tinwood Estate

Tinwood Estate


Eat at Tinwood

Experience the Vineyard Kitchen at Tinwood Estate. The Vineyard Kitchen offers British tapas-style dishes which have been made from locally sourced, high-quality produce. Enjoy the breathtaking views of the vines in our Tasting Room, the large open terrace, or the lawns next to the vines.

Explore the dining options on our Vineyard, from dining during a Vineyard Tour and Wine Tasting, or in private on your own spot overlooking the vines. We do not take table reservations unless you are booked onto a Vineyard Tour and Wine tasting, but we are open every day for walk-in food and drinks.

Handmade Sussex Produce

The Vineyard Kitchen

The menu has been designed around the wines, to be enjoyed in tandem with a Vineyard Tour and Wine Tasting. The dishes are influenced by our surroundings and season, so may change throughout the year. They are intended to be shared and paired with our award-winning Sussex sparkling wine, and we suggest around three to five dishes per person. We favour fresh, local, and sustainable products, as much as possible.

The dishes are made with the highest-quality, locally sourced ingredients and include a variety of meat, fish, vegetarian, cheese, and desserts. We will always have freshly made bread available too. Please check out the sample menu.

To ensure a table, book a Vineyard Tour and Wine Tasting.

Vineyard Picnics

You are welcome to buy a bottle of our Sussex sparkling wines to be enjoyed privately on a picnic blanket or table.

Collect a picnic hamper and picnic blanket from the Tasting Room and enjoy your selected dishes in the beautiful vineyard. Sit amongst the vines in our stunning Sussex vineyard overlooking the South Downs, or soak up the summer sunshine from our picnic tables. If the weather should turn, you can sit inside the Tasting Room.
