Celebrating the former life of this listed outbuilding, which is also home to Season cookery school, The Wellhouse is bringing a whole new woodfired eating experience to Lainston House, Hampshire and the south of England. One of the UK's very few restaurants to have all dishes cooked by woodfire, The Wellhouse is an exciting new restaurant offering unique food, drink and social experience, celebrating the simplicity of woodfired ovens and smokers. Sat inside the historic rustic-luxe surroundings, you'll be able to see, smell and taste the delights of woodfired cooking and for those special occasions, you can enjoy private dining in the idyllic outside setting of the vast kitchen garden.

Welcoming you to The Wellhouse from 20th May
Open every day for dinner 6.30pm to 9.30pm
Hotel residents can access the restaurant from 5.30pm

Woodfire . Kitchen . Garden

With Phil Yeomans at the helm, The Wellhouse will take inspiration from the hotel’s impressive kitchen garden as well as the exceptional and artisanal produce found in the county including meat, fish, dairy, wines and spirits, notably from River Test Chalkstream. Combining kitchen innovation, tradition with a twist, with fun, casual and personalised hospitality, The Wellhouse welcomes hotel guests and the local community to experience an authentic, immersive eating and drinking experience, where the simplicity of woodfired cooking and home grown produce come together with the very best of local field, farm and forest.

More than just dinner...

Open just during the evenings, The Wellhouse is the perfect new spot for relaxed dates, families or groups of friends, with fun filled sharing platters making it a social occasion. You'll also find local wines, ales and Lainston's own apple cider, along with homegrown garden-inspired cocktails – including ‘shandygaffs’ - a long forgotten and very traditional English shandy, whereby the ale is enhanced by the option to mix it with a ginger beer top and a shot of kitchen garden cordial!

The Wellhouse is more than dinner, it’s a great night out and truly social occasion unexpectedly found in the grounds of a five-star luxury hotel.
