A Short Film of our Wassail

Our wassail this year was a wonderful evening. Thank you to everyone that wrapped up and came to visit us. We think this was our best Wassail yet, the proof will be in this years crop….

Luckily filmaker Mark Whatmore was on hand to film the whole event. Here is snapshot of our evening of food and ritual along with an excellent recipe on the Guardian Website.

Friday Night Restaurant Launch. March 2nd.


After much encouragement to serve dinner we are opening Friday nights as a restaurant. No hyperbole or pretense, just excellent produce grown by Mark the gardener and cooked by The Ethicurean chefs. We have a beautifully simple list of our favorite wines, craft beers, ciders and spirits. We are taking reservations now.
