Great tasting local food beautifully presented

Over 20 years ago I started my chef career working with Albert Roux of Roux Fine Dining in London. It was here I first learnt the importance of using local seasonal ingredients that are beautifully presented.

Almost all the ingredients for your menu are either sourced from the surrounding Kent & East Sussex countryside or grown on our smallholding. This means you get a menu that is unique, fresh & local.

Using local Kent and East Sussex suppliers

artisan bread for wedding

For our bread we like to use the The Lighthouse Bakery in East Sussex. They make everything the traditional way from scratch. Simple bread and great flavour.

Cheeses from Kent and East Sussex

Kent and East Sussex have some of the best cheeses in the country. From Kent blue to Olde Sussex. We like to showcase the best cheeses on our cheese boards.

Simply Ice Cream Wedding Dessert

Is there a more delicious ice cream around? Simple Ice Cream is handmade in Kent, and is naturally creamy and delightfully naughty. We like to offer this for our summer picnics
