The Estate Kitchen is Wilderness Reserve’s secret weapon. Our in-house chefs have trained in some of the country’s most well-regarded hotels and restaurants, choosing to now make Wilderness Reserve their home. It’s a simple mantra that is attached to their cooking – good food, done well. With locally sourced ingredients, to which Suffolk is famous, the team are ideal partners for celebrations, events, or simply a well deserved weekend break.
Food is so important to the Wilderness Reserve experience, whether it’s us ensuring the kitchen is fully equipped for our foodie guests to the pride we take in the dishes we serve at events, this is why we have created a selection of dining experiences sure to excite.
Our Bonfire Experience is one of our favourite ways to kick off a weekend at Wilderness Reserve. A short walk from either estate, it’s the sort of fun which sends you right back to childhood. Grab a pair of wellies from the boot room and wrap up as you make your way into a clearing. Enjoy either a warming mulled wine or glass of Pimm's as marshmallows are speared onto hand-carved sticks with fervour. Sausage rolls and more warming drinks to follow as you pick a spot on the bales of hay, ready to watch the sun and the embers go down.
The team are so excited to make your weekend vision come to life - if you have any dining experience requests or just want to know more, enquire below.SEND AN ENQUIRY
Set in secluded woodland, dine amongst the ancient tree canopies with one of our most magical dining experiences yet. Our team will escort you along the leafy pathways ever deeper into the woodland until the smell of roasting meats, fish, and vegetables fill the air - as the clearing comes into view an immaculately laid table of white linen and fresh flowers await whilst the bar will have your welcome drink at the ready. Think plank nailed salmon and charred flatbreads, perfect for sharing and catching up on your day.
