We’re getting closer to announcing when we’ll be opening reservations for #FORGE.

Tucked away on The Old Farm, once neglected farm buildings the new restaurant will serve innovative dishes, created using locally sourced ingredients harvested from the estate or reared by the local farming community.

You’ll have the choice between the unusual nine course tasting menu or the five-course set menu, using foraged produce. The menus will change with the seasons and will be influenced by what Head Chef, Gareth Rayner harvests that morning.

FORGE will be open four nights a week for evening reservation only, styled with open brick walls, a roaring oaky open fire and natural lighting the restaurant sets the rustic scene for each intricate dish to be served.

An update from the Estate

We’re delighted to announce, in light of the latest Government guidance that our Coach House restaurant and hotel will re-open on Thursday 3rd December 2020.

From Thursday the Coach House will be serving up a delicious winter walled garden inspired menu for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Our stretch tent is still in place for alfresco-dining and we have the heaters and mulled wine at the ready. As the restaurant re-opens, we will no longer be offering takeaway orders Monday to Saturday. And on Sundays you can either join us for your Sunday roast or pre-order and collect your lunch to enjoy at home.

Should you have a hotel reservation from December 3rd, your booking will still be in place and we’re looking forward to welcoming you.

As you can imagine, our phone lines are extremely busy at the moment, which is why we thank you for your patience in advance.
