Our chefs take their inspiration from the gardens – many of the ingredients integral to our dishes are produced on the estate – from fruit, flowers, leaves and herbs to honey and cordials.
Beyond that we’re dedicated to finding the finest quality fresh ingredients that we can source from local suppliers, because we believe our customers will taste the difference.
