At the end of summer, Greentrees Estate opened its doors to an exclusive evening of culinary mastery, expertly crafted cocktails, and warm hospitality, all presented by Parlour Events.

Nestled on 170 acres of scenic Sussex countryside and woodlands, Greentrees Estate, an exclusive, family-owned venue, elegantly spans the boundaries of both Cowdray and Brantridge Forests. The estate is the backdrop for weddings, private events, filming, and gatherings. With its substantial capacity of 250 guests and eight on-site cottages featuring amenities such as a wood-fired hot tub, sauna, and treatment room, Greentrees Estate is the ultimate choice.

Parlour Events is a newly established events management and catering company, founded in 2022 by renowned Michelin-starred chef Matt Gillan and his accomplished team, known for their success at Heritage Restaurant in Sussex. The core philosophy at Parlour Events revolves around curating one-of-a-kind, unforgettable experiences for guests, complete with innovative cuisine, delightful beverages, and exceptional service.

This soiree provided a unique opportunity for Greentrees Estate to introduce itself to a distinguished gathering of industry professionals while showcasing the unparalleled hospitality of Parlour Events.

The evening commenced with a delightful array of cocktails and canapés, setting the stage for an exceptional three-course meal prepared by the talented chefs in the enchanting Grand Oak Hall.

Harriet says, “We are thrilled to have hosted this exceptional evening at Greentrees Estate and extend our gratitude to everyone who played a part in making this evening truly remarkable. We eagerly anticipate the opportunity to host more exclusive events in the future, offering guests unparalleled experiences within our unique, family-run estate”.
