We continue to produce organic pork, lamb and beef off Eastbrook Farm here, combine it with organic veggies from Westmill, our own organic milk via Berkeley Farm, mozzarella from Claudio on the farm, eggs from Sophie’s chicks and chicks themselves from organic Otter Valley in N Devon; ice creams from the mad Mr Scheckter at Laverstoke with his flatulent buffaloes; spices etc. from the fair-trade, North Korea era Essential Co-op. All ridiculous but it’s the only way we know, pious things that we are. Service charge 10% applied for groups of 6 or more if we think we’ve done a good job. You are allowed to challenge this. Anybody bringing a cake for a celebration will be assumed to have brought it for us to eat; if not, we will charge you £5 per person (negotiable), unless you eat lots of puddings! TF

We also run 12 rather smart hotel rooms, just in case you’d rather stay for a bit longer than you’d planned; take a look through the hole in the hedge at the end of the car park. The stain of the builders is slowly being eradicated and replaced in the best possible taste!
