The Brasserie

With its laidback atmosphere and friendly service, The Brasserie restaurant is an informal dining space to enjoy deliciously wholesome homecooked meals.

The restaurant is in the farm's old converted milking parlour and has a huge stone fireplace that's lit in wintertime to keep you warm as you tuck into dishes using the freshest local seasonal produce. Where possible, our head chef Xavier Picquenot takes ingredients from our kitchen garden and onsite smokery. Eggs for your breakfast are supplied by our farmyard chickens, while Gloucester Old Spot pigs reside in the paddock.

The menu is seasonal but expect the likes of pork belly with smoked mash and black pudding bonbon, and seabass with giant couscous. We always have classic dishes too, including fish and chips, liver and mash, burgers and pies. If you really want to push the boat out, don't miss our divine five-course tasting menu.

Breakfast: 06:30 - 09:30

Brasserie Bar

The exposed brickwork, beamed ceilings and old beer barrel tables give it a distinctive character, while local real ales and ciders are available on tap. You can take your drink through to the lounge to relax in the comfy chairs or step outside with your summer cocktail or G&T to enjoy an alfresco drink on the terrace area while catching some rays.
