The kitchen is overseen by Chef James Golding whose two key lieutenants aren't their sous chefs but forager and 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.

Our private dining room, known as The Green Room is located on the ground floor of the hotel and is perfect for smaller parties. The room can sit up to a maximum of 14 people on one table.
Guiding you to some of the deepest and most secret areas in search of wild mushrooms.
An activity the whole family can enjoy whilst providing fresh air and good exercise. Our forager will take you on a light-hearted and educational experience through the forest or along the coast finding, identifying and collecting wild edible food.
In the Spring the walks can include a hedgerow harvest such as wild salads and vegetables and through the Autumn we forage for fruits, nuts and berries. On a trip to the coast you can gather seaweed and shellfish.
