Food and drink
The Elms team is proud to have acclaimed Head Chef, Chris Von Landkammer, on board, providing both the Garden Café and Brookes Restaurant with beautifully designed menus to suit both adults and children.
The Brookes achieves the balance between family dining and parents desiring fine dining, serving family lunch and an adult only a la carte dinner.
Parents who wish to enjoy some grown up time at dinner, can take the little ones along to high tea in the Garden Café, then dine in Brookes after the children are tucked up in bed. The baby listening service will monitor the sleeping children, allowing parents to remember the times before children came along.
