Our home is your home – Whole site hire

A restaurant’s essential component is also the most elusive – ambience – and that’s what makes The Twenty Six such a special restaurant for private dining for family and friends or for business, events, celebrations and intimate weddings. A few simple and seasonal flowers and foliage is all that’s needed to dress the set. The menu too is confident and ever-evolving with the seasons with ingredients sourced from the Kent and East Sussex larder – game birds, wild garlic, elderflowers, mushrooms, oysters, cherries are all local.

Private dining in the Taste Room

Seating up to sixteen guests, the Taste Room is flooded with natural light during the day and in the evening, the candles flicker. The Taste Room is ideal for an important business meeting or for a close gathering of family and friends to celebrate in an atmosphere that is relaxed, non-formulaic, elegant and chic. Guests watch the theatre of the kitchen adjacent as chefs’ craft homely feasting style suppers or high-end taste menus, with seasonality, fun and experimentation at its core

Private dining menu starts from £23.50.

Celebrations and weddings

In our family, we know that what really matters goes beyond the fuss and frills of colour schemes and centrepieces. The moments we treasure and value forever are the ones we share with friends and family. Come in, take a seat and enjoy an intimate wedding breakfast, bespoke to the two of you, with a menu that’s lovingly crafted from the seasons.

Each of our I’ll be Mother homes have something slightly different to offer; what doesn’t change is our commitment to helping create the perfect event for you, with our warm and generous style.

For a day created around your style and your guests, we have it covered. Please contact Jenny Cook on or 01892 519882 to discuss your event requirements.
