Squerryes is a 2,500 acre wine estate located just outside Westerham and has been run by the Warde family for just over 300 years. Above the front door to their home sits the family motto: ‘Licet Esse Beatis’, which means ‘permitted to be joyful’. They say they’re in the business of creating joy, from bottling their vintage sparkling wine to the event and dining spaces they have created across the estate to enable more moments of joy.


Squerryes award-winning vintage sparkling wine is made from their own fruit (Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier grapes) grown high on the North Downs. They take a minimum of 4 years to make each bottle, using ‘Méthode Traditionnelle’, the same method used by the champagne houses. In 2020 they won their fifth gold medal in the World Championships of Champagne and Sparkling Wine, the first English wine brand to win 5 golds across 5 consecutive vintages.


At the heart of the working English wine estate, is their brasserie-style restaurant, sun-filled terrace and private garden serving delicious food using seasonal ingredients foraged from the estate and some wonderful artisan producers from the Garden of England.

It’s a beautiful place to be, it’s truly the gateway to the Garden of England with views across the south of the estate and their Rosé vineyard.

Their menus are ever-changing, influenced by the seasons but you can expect simple dishes expressing the natural flavours of the region, prepared without compromise. The restaurant is open for lunch on Wednesday and lunch and dinner Thursday to Saturday. With Sunday Roast Lunch 12-5pm.

The wine list has been designed by their Master of Wine, Laura Evans an expert in her field for 20 years.  Her passion is shared with you through the ample selection of red, white and fortified wines, each with their own quite fascinating story – old and new world, contemporary English brands and exciting new finds.

Or enjoy a glass of Squerryes made with fruit grown on the chalk soils of the North Downs vineyard – a portfolio of young and aged wines, that clearly express the natural terroir.

In the winter and colder seasons, come together with friends and family and enjoy a heart-warming Sunday roast in the cosy surrounds of their restaurant.

Or in the spring and summer, you can have a picnic in the Rosé vineyard, with hampers freshly prepared by the estate kitchen filled with delights using seasonal ingredients. They also run tours of the vineyard and tastings of their award-winning Squerryes between Friday to Sunday.

They also have a number of spaces for private hire for meetings and celebrations for up to 200 people across the Estate.
