Fish served in the Elms restaurant

Led by Head Chef, John Brandon, our experienced kitchen team uses the freshest of ingredients, as well as homegrown fruit, herbs and vegetables, to conjure up a menu of fabulous meals, using the best of British and often local ingredients. The kitchen garden is home to over 100 herbs and bursting with fruit and vegetables. Ian, the kitchen gardener, tends and nurtures the plants that will eventually tantalise your taste buds. If you catch him when he’s not too busy, he’ll be delighted to guide you around, give you growing tips, bestow his encyclopedic knowledge of birds and show off the carnivorous plants that keep insects at bay.

You might also consider our magnificent 7 course tasting menu; ideal for a special occasion or weekend treat.

During the day, you’re always welcome to order food and drinks outside of the restaurants – whether you choose an indulgent afternoon tea in one of the cosy lounges, or some ice-cold cocktails on the velvety lawns. Perhaps it's simply an energising morning coffee with homemade biscuits after a swim in the pool.

Breakfast is a relaxed affair in the Terrace restaurant, with a generous continental buffet or plated cooked breakfasts, cooked to order.

A light lunch is served daily in the Garden Café or lounge areas with exceptional views across the lawns. Alternatively, treat yourself to a spectacular three course lunch in the Brookes restaurant, which is open every day.
