From farm to table

With the amazing local produce available on our doorstep, our brigade of exceptional chefs create wonderful menus that carefully reflect our philosophy of “farm to fork”. We use only the best and most seasonal produce to showcase the finest that Dorset has to offer, with a light and delicate touch that allows the ingredients to speak for themselves.

We are all so proud of our region and our incredible suppliers. From wonderful local cheeses to Dorset truffles and everything in between, we are never short of delicious produce, enhanced by the freshest ingredients grown in our own kitchen gardens and polytunnels. With an extensive wine selection, the dining experience is made even more extraordinary.

The Restaurant is proud to hold three AA Rosettes.

An exceptional Sunday Lunch

Nestled in the heart of the Dorset countryside, there is nowhere better to enjoy a traditional Sunday Lunch than our renowned restaurant.

Locally sourced Dorset lamb, home-grown vegetables, and the ambience of our traditional English country-house make for a splendid occasion.
