Hotel, Restaurant & Bar
The Vernon Hanbury is a beautifully restored restaurant located in the rural village of Hanbury and is now under the new management of Michelin-trained Chef, Richard Attkins.
At the age of 16, Richard began his chef's training in the Highlands, specialising in local Scottish cuisine. He progressed through Michelin-starred establishments in France before taking on the responsibilities of Head Chef at distinctive restaurants in Surrey, Sussex and Berkshire. Richard was then awarded the prestigious Master Chef of Great Britain status — an accolade shared by fewer than 300 culinary professionals throughout the UK.
Leading a team of passionate chefs along with highly trained bar and waiting staff, Richard has created a supreme atmosphere when it comes to dining in the The Vernon Hanbury, which holds an AA rosette and Four Star accommodation rating.
"Taste", "Creativity" and "Passion" are just some of the words that have been used to describe the dining experience.
The Vernon Hanbury offers various areas where subtle colors and mood lighting adds even more personality to your dining experience. Our main attraction is the private area which has to be seen to be believed, with high backed oak chairs and a low hanging lantern creating a unique and memorable atmosphere.
All our food ingredients are carefully selected, with Richard choosing only the very best and using fresh local products wherever possible. The Vernon Hanbury is committed to the selection of local produce to help nearby farmers and businesses to develop, while providing the best food in this part of the Worcestershire countryside.
The history of The Vernon Hanbury is also very fascinating, with the original building dating back to the 1740's and areas such as the private dining room still have authentic details, such as the fireplace. For more information, please have a look at our History section.
