Drop-in dining in the heart of the Kitchen Garden

Right in the heart of the walled Kitchen Garden, our rustic and reclaimed outdoor kitchen is now open! Head over the rickety bridge, past the sprouting, through the greenhouse, and onto our Garden Oven to find wood-fired cooking and tasty tipples.

Simple and seriously tasty, the Garden Oven is serving smoky flat breads 12pm - 8pm.

Earn your beer and cycle or walk to us, or if that’s too much like hard work just swing by – there is no need to book!

As always, seating will be on a first come first served basis. Physical distancing will be strictly observed so numbers will be limited.

The Wood-ovens are now closed for the winter and will be back in 2021!

You can check in from 4pm at all of our properties, however, you’re more than welcome to arrive earlier to drop off your luggage and explore the gardens. Due to current physical distancing guidelines, we are limiting capacity in the main hotel, so you might not be able to make the most of the lounges until you have checked in. The team will be on hand to help you when you arrive.

Check out is by 11am. We ask that you leave your room by this time, but please enjoy the surroundings all day. We can’t guarantee an early check-in or late check-out, but stick around and let us know your plans and we will try our best on the day.
