That’s where it all started. We’ve got an obsessive commitment to home-grown and local produce: simple food done well.
It's all about the Kitchen Garden
There’s a saying in Devon that ‘if you stick your finger in the ground it will grow’, and the kitchen garden is our beating heart.
The difference here is there are 3 walled gardens - the vegetable garden, the herb garden, and the infusion garden.
