The History of the Manor at Bickley

Formally the West Kent Country Club, The Manor at Bickley was established as a fine dining restaurant with accommodation in 1966 by Mr Joseph Mourat. Mr Mourat was a larger than life character who owned successful restaurants in the West End and the City,  having the aspiration that The Manor at Bickley become the premium drinking and dining destination for local residents.

Set within 6 acres of gardens and impressive function rooms, the early days at The Manor quickly saw it become a sought after venue that attracted some of history’s most glamorous and famous faces along with local residents that saw it as the place to come.  Our Vision for The Manor again today.

It still remains in the same family and the mission for The Manor includes a restoration and expansion plan that will modernise this wonderful building but pay homage to its prestigious past, giving justice to the memory of Mr Mourat and his vision.

We have made a great start! The newly refurbished restaurant, bar, function rooms along with some of the bedrooms are just a few of the new changes here at The Manor at Bickley along with a new management and culinary team.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.
