PROUD COUNTRY HOUSE IN STANMER PARK IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE NEW RESTAURANT ‘SOURCE’
Source will ensure all of its meat and freshly-grown produce will be from within a 20-mile radius of our front door. Menus will be seasonal, and we will ensure that our producers respect the environment and deliver exceptional quality. Ingredients will be simply and beautifully cooked and served at a price that is fair for everyone from producer to guest. The quality of our food is matched by the sumptuous surroundings of our Grade 1 listed Georgian country manor, which has been sensitively renovated juxtaposing antiques and reclamation yard finds, with 70s glamour and modern patterns.
The man behind the operation is our new Head Chef James Mitchell, who joins Proud Country House after 25 years working in some of the best restaurants in the country. His career started at The Savoy Hotel in London, after which he went on to revamp and reinvigorate the kitchens of several high-end West End Hotels to much• lauded success; including The Strand Palace and Hilton Park Lane. James gained his first Head Chef position at the age of 25 at the four-star Boutique Belgravia Hotel, on Brighton’s seafront. Since moving to Brighton, James’ love for his new local area inspired the idea of creating a restaurant which pipes a real fanfare about the produce of the county and offers the people of Sussex their new favourite Brighton haunt.
His enthusiasm for lovingly-made food shines through in our new menu. He believes in starting with the very finest ingredients, treating them with respect and letting the quality speak for itself. Some of our favourite items on the autumn menu include pickled and grilled south coast mackerel, beef rib on the bone, game chips with pepper sauce and the very best pork scratchings going. For those after something lighter, we have a menu full of healthy, vegetarian or plant-based options such as the jam-packed wheatberry, roast parsnip, butternut squash and dried cranberry, chicory, watercress and Brighton Blue salad. Source’s Grazing Menu will also be available in our library for small plates, bar snacks and delicious informal dining.
