Pop in or fill in an enquiry form to see what we can do for you.

The Orchard

Available to book from May to September, our stretch tent in the Orchard is the perfect space to hire for your next celebration.


Venture into the garden for good cheer and good food. Enjoy the versatility of our covered outdoor space, and host your friends and family for christenings, birthday parties, and everything in between. The Orchard is free to hire, with a minimum of 15 guests, and up to 25 seated and 45 standing. Our food is all freshly prepared in our kitchen, so we can be flexible to anything you need, whether you’re looking to order from our main menu, set menu, or even just a few deli plates with drinks. Our bar is always fully stocked, and the team are ready to make your occasion special with whatever you need.



Whether it’s a casual get-together with drinks, a formal dinner for a special occasion, or a buffet lunch in an intimate setting, we have the perfect space for your next private booking.


Bring the family together or gather a group and relax in the comfort of being hosted, and let us cook you a delicious lunch or dinner, paired with award-winning wine, or a top-notch Sunday roast. We always serve the good stuff, using top-quality ingredients with seasonality at the core, always free-range, and dishes we’d be happy to serve in our own home. Order from our main menu, set menu, or even just a few deli plates with drinks. Pop in, enquire online or give us a call on 01865 862329.


Business Meetings

Whether you’re looking for a small meeting or a large get-together, we have plenty of space in our bar area, and all the amenities to make for a productive and hassle-free day of work. Free wifi, Union Hand-Roasted, and delicious food served all day. We have a number of packages available and all details will be arranged prior to your arrival (for more formal occasions), ensuring the day runs smoothly. The only decision you have to make on the day is whether to stay for a well earned drink!

We look forward to welcoming you soon.
