Our award winning restaurant is the heart of Eslington Villa and we have a real passion for producing outstanding food with an emphasis on the highest quality local and seasonal produce.
We believe in letting the food speak for itself and take a simple, classic approach to cooking, along with a few innovative and modern touches.
Whether for an intimate dinner for two, a family lunch, or a place to entertain clients, Eslington Villa is the perfect choice. Customers are free to stay as long as they like, relaxing over an aperitif and a look through the menus in the bar and lounge beforehand, enjoying a leisurely meal in our dining room or airy conservatory and finishing back in the comfort of the lounge for coffee and drinks.
