Our menu reflects our sense of place in the English countryside with a short and ever-changing menu, guided by the seasons and the garden, with produce-led cooking that is simple and elegant but prepared with imagination and care.
For Winter 2023 we're introducing our Winter Series One menu - a celebration of some of our favourite cookery writers and chefs.
The restaurant, led by Head Chef, Jed Wrobel, is now located in the heated Carnation House for the winter months. During summer months we move to our outside terrace and which is placed under a tented awning, overlooking the garden.
