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.
25-Mile Menu & Kitchen Garden Produce
Our panelled characterful restaurant dishes up British Kitchen Garden food, true to the micro seasons and with a real focus on simple and fresh flavours.
Derelict chic dining in our rustic hideaway
The Folly is our hideaway tucked away in the gardens, created with drop-in drinking and dining in mind. We serve up chargrilled goodness and smoky flat breads with a mix of delicious toppings to choose from throughout all year round.
Our commitment to a 25-mile menu not only supports our local suppliers, but means we can be 100% honest on the provenance of our ingredients.
Take a look at our sample menus to get a feel for what we may be dishing up. Please note these are subject to change.
Please speak to our Restaurants Manager if you have any questions about the menu, allergies or dietary requirements.
