Hampton Manor is a family run Restaurant with Rooms in the quiet village of Hampton-in-Arden, just 12 minutes outside Birmingham. Craftsmanship is at the heart of the house. The team have developed relationships with the best suppliers in Britain for Michelin-starred Peel’s Restaurant’s tasting menus and looked to the Manor’s past to design 15 Arts and Crafts inspired bedrooms and a recently launched cottage. In 2016 Peel’s Restaurant was awarded a Michelin-star and its fourth AA-rosette. Head Chef Rob Palmer sources the best seasonal, British produce and cooks it using modern techniques. Each dish focuses on just three main ingredients, giving them an honest simplicity. The restaurant is open Tuesday to Saturday and seats 28 guests. Four or seven course tasting menus are available with optional accompanying wine flights.
