Discreetly sheltered in the grounds of the elegant 17th Century mansion of Lainston House, lies a secret, walled Kitchen Garden which has recently been restored beyond its former glory. Not only does it supply the hotel’s award winning restaurant kitchen with fresh herbs and vegetables, but the Kitchen Garden is now a charming location for guests to enjoy contemplative, sweet smelling walks and has now become the perfect location for evening drinks or afternoon tea.Call us 01962 776088 Call us : 01962 776088
Head Chef Olly Rouse, together with the grounds team, has built the 4 acre kitchen garden, which now provides 90% of kitchen herbs. Crops of tomatoes, salad, cucumber and courgette, carrots, onions, runner beans, lavender, apples, pears, figs, quince, rhubarb and kiwi fruit plus strawberries and raspberries together with a number of heritage vegetables are on offer.
And right in the centre of the garden, we've constructed a large wood burning stone oven and barbecue for pizzas, whole joints and traditional barbecue cooking. Together with a fabulously large oak table, the setting is perfect for getting together with friends to enjoy a glass of bubbly or an informal party!
