New menus launched in the brasserie

Inspired by the concept of a classic French brasserie, Wivenhoe House offers a winning combination of classic dishes and modern cuisine to be enjoyed in our attractive and informal setting.

We are committed to sourcing the best local and regional produce to reflect the wealth of flavour and food to be found in East Anglia.  Our new menus for lunch and dinner feature firm favourites such as the ever-popular croque monsieur for a filling lunch and the hearty winter warmer, bouillabaisse, combining fish from around our shores in a tasty dish.

On Sunday, dining is a relaxed affair as we revert to what the British do best, adding the traditional roasts to the menu. You also have the option to add a half bottle of wine to your three courses for only £4.50

Each visit, whether with family or friends, is an enjoyable occasion to savour each other’s company and the delicious menu.
