Beautiful rolling countryside, fabulous views and abundant wildlife… then back to The Kitchen for the perfect end to a great day out.

Wet dogs and wellies always welcome!


With some of the best walks in the region right here on our door step, why not soak up the countryside and stop off at The Kitchen for some great food, great wine and great times!

Your four legged friends are very welcome and can even join you for lunch in the bar.  Dog bowls are always available and woofy treats can be provided.

The closest and easiest walk is just two minutes from our car park, around the picturesque Farnborough lake.  It’s a beautiful and easy walk along the lake shores and through woods: ideal for dogs and children alike.

If you are dining with us or joining us for a drink, either before or after your walk, please do feel free to leave your car in our car park.

A true British classic done just right. Slightly sharp spiced apple complimented with a sweet crumble with a lovely dollop of Madagascan vanilla custard, all made fresh to order! The perfect winters treat!

Celebration of Autumn with the Great British Food Fortnight!

Summers Over, there it is I have finally admitted it and uttered the phrase I have frankly been putting off since the beginning of September.
