Refined surroundings

It is not just the views you will want to feast on at Chilston Park – our head chef Rohan Nevins is a taste perfectionist and sources the best local and seasonal produce when planning his signature menus. From fine dining in Culpeper’s to traditional afternoon tea in our Marble Lounge with views over the lake you will find the setting for you. Eat alfresco on one of our terraces or enjoy one of our private dining rooms, perfect for any event or special occasion – or when you simply think it’s time to be indulged.

Our newest recruit to the management team here at Chilston Park is Rohan. He held multiple Rosettes at Leaming House and The Old England Hotel and his style of cooking suits the atmosphere and surroundings of Chilston Park perfectly. In his own words, he wants to cook dishes that his guests enjoy and will come back for time and time again.
