A Table Outside at the Birtley Estate

in the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

5th May 2018

Farm to table dining by the lake from 6:00-10:00pm


The venue

Just outside Guildford in the village of Bramley lies the Birtley Estate; 48 acres of pristine gardens, woodland, orchards and lakes. Owned by the Whalley family since 1945, the estate produces cider, brandy, brown trout, freshwater crayfish, honey, and eggs as well as a variety of seasonal fruit and vegetables. Birtley is an important resource for the local community and within the woodlands, you’ll find the workshops of several Surrey artisans. 


The chef

Daniel Britten’s cooking is synonymous with Surrey. After reaching the quarter finals of Masterchef in 2008, he went on to win Surrey Life Magazine’s Best Local Menu and has been nominated twice for Surrey Chef of the Year. For A Table Outside at Birtley, Daniel will create a menu featuring produce from the estate as well as from other members of The Surrey Hills Enterprises.

Join us for a welcome drink and canapés by the lake from 6pm followed by a fascinating walk around the estate led by the owner Simon Whalley. The 30 minute tour ends at our long table where you’ll take a seat to enjoy a wonderful four course meal with wine paired to each dish.
