Weekend Escapes

The Swan Wine Kitchen is a place to enjoy exceptional food whilst relaxing in the heart of the stunning Kent countryside. This rustic modern restaurant sits above the shop in the Chapel Down vineyard and boasts a stylish lounge and a gorgeous rooftop terrace with views over the vines.

Found in rural Small Hythe, just outside Tenterden, Chapel Down is arguably one of England’s best known wine makers and is recognised for its quality the world over. So visitors to The Swan Wine Kitchen, owned by the I’ll Be Mother group, can combine their dining experience with wine tastings and guided tours of the surrounding vineyard and winery.

The restaurant, naturally, features award-winning wines from the vineyard – whether that’s reds, rosés and whites, still or sparkling. There’s also a fresh menu every season plus it boasts a 2AA rosette and a Michelin bib gourmand. Experience the finest locally and regionally-sourced produce, cooked to perfection, in an elegant, relaxed and informal environment. Here the refined cooking is full of flavour and relies on just a few ingredients to do the talking.

Within the restaurant sits the Chef’s Table – an elegant private dining room – ideal for meetings, business lunches, celebratory meals and wine tastings. Seating up to 18 guests, the room is elevated within the main restaurant and has direct views to the hub of the kitchen. For more information and to check availability please contact the team on

The perfect place for meetings and conferences, the Swan Wine Kitchen is also a beautiful venue for your wedding, and exclusively yours. Licensed for ceremonies in the Herb Garden, say your vows surrounded by scented roses and fresh herbs. Guests will raise a glass of award winning Chapel Down Brut whilst your first photographs as Mr & Mrs are taken against the backdrop of vines.

This stunning space has so much to offer – and your visit will be truly memorable.
