Grays Court Conference Venue

Grays Court Conference Venue


In 1674, a duel took place at Grays Court for the honour of a lady Miss Mallorie… Nowadays, we prefer to sort these things out over dinner! And so it is that we are delighted to introduce Duel @ Grays Court.

We are deeply proud of Duel. We celebrate our passion for food, our love of ingredients and respect for classic flavours, but we do so with a smile and with an inquisitive mind as we explore how modern techniques can enhance or even challenge the traditional. We're even inclined to be impish on occasion with surprises along the way! This is about a gourmet experience and a celebration, a celebration of Grays Court, of fine food and wine, and of great company.

Choose from either 5 or "several" courses (several courses will be at least 9 and probably more) and allow our Chef to take you on his own culinary journey. Dishes develop and change and the menu is very much influenced by market availability. We can match each of your nine courses with a wine chosen to complement each dish.

As an alternative, we have a relaxed offering, a set three course dinner or "fondue" by the fire.

The dining room overlooks the garden and the city walls and is a beautiful spot to enjoy lovely food, great wines and of course great company… Miss Mallorie would be suitably impressed!
