The kitchen is overseen by Chef James Golding whose two key lieutenants aren’t his sous chefs but his forager and his kitchen gardener.
Uncomplicated and simple British garden food, true to the micro seasons and influenced by the forest and coast, with the emphasis squarely on fresh, clean flavours.
What can’t be grown in our Kitchen Garden, or in the extensive vegetable and fruit beds, is sourced locally – our further commitment to the 25 mile menu.
Served in an authentically reproduced Victorian greenhouse dining room, complete with bare wood table tops and mismatched bone handled cutlery.
