November 24, 2023: 

From a press release received today: A new concept will build on the laid back atmosphere the open fire-cooking restaurant is already known for.  Whilst Stu will continue to serve comfort food cooked over flames, Smoke 2.0 will see the introduction of new dishes rooted in longevity. A revamped terroir-led wine list and innovative cocktail menu will also be available from the re-designed bar. Those looking to immerse themselves in the theatrics of the kitchen can now opt for counter dining, creating an intimate dining experience and dialogue between the chefs and diners.

Stu’s new menu celebrates wood fired feasts that can withstand the test of time. Guests can opt for a three or five course menu with Chalk stream trout, golden beetroot, sour cream with elderflower or Aged striploin tartare, red pepper and orange pine nut to start. For mains, expect Hereford côte de boeuf for two with bearnaise sauce, oak leaf & Lollo Rosso salad or the BBQ artichoke, king oyster mushroom and cep sauce. Dessert includes Coffee and manjeri delice, macadamia, coffee liqueur and a Miso and brown sugar brûlée, mandarin and gingerbread.

This “atmospheric restaurant” serves “excellent, very tasty and well-presented dishes” cooked over fire – appropriately in an old Victorian furnace house in the walled garden of Hampton Manor (“close to Grace & Savour and a short distance from the Manor itself”). Head chef Stuart Deeley won MasterChef: The Professionals in 2019.

Launched in late 2021, an old Victorian furnace house on the edge of the Manor’s walled garden provides the venue for this relatively informal operation, where MasterChef: The Professionals winner, Stuart Deeley, cooks over coals. It was the most popular option at the property this year, although one report felt that “while the BBQ was perfectly good, it needed elevating to meet its aspirations”.

Summary

Launched in September 2021, this new ‘restaurant experience’ – in Victorian greenhouses on the edge of a walled garden – is billed as ‘Peel’s edgier younger brother’. At the stoves, MasterChef: The Professionals winner, Stuart Deeley, who presides over a ‘rustic’ menu with food cooked over fire that ‘celebrates seasonal produce, sustainable farming and simplicity’. Four courses are £65 or six courses are £85. (Deeley had originally aimed to open in Brum’s Jewellery Quarter, but his plans were put on hold during the pandemic, and Hampton Manor became the venue for his ‘Brummie fusion food’.)

"The food is very good, but represented poor value. The service was bang average (being generous). The location itself does Mr Deeley no favours. The washroom facilities must be a practical joke! Why anyone would visit Hampton Manor and go here rather than Grace & Savour is beyond me!"
