12th July, 28th July, 24th August & 14th September
For those who are looking for something really out of this world, this event is perfect for the intrepid diner.
Join us at our restored Deerhouse in the Parkland, for an alfresco barbecue dinner. Sensational food is served to you by our chef at your table, tasting all the better for being outdoors, with candlelight, a starlit sky and a blazing fire to work their magic.
What better way to relax and soak up the atmosphere of a dreamy English summer’s evening.
£35 per person : includes Pimms on arrival and a two course meal. Bookings for tables of a minimum of four (or mixed tables for bookings of 1-3 guests). Warm clothing and footwear highly recommended, as the evening turns cool after sunset. This is a rustic experience, with uneven ground surrounding the deerhouse – please take care on arrival and departure.

Thank goodness the sun has now come out and we seem to have finally put winter behind us! The Parkland has burst into bloom with clouds of blossom and a colourful carpet of daffodils and bluebells around the trees.
The Walled Garden is also getting going, with bright tulips swaying in the breeze and home grown asparagus bursting forth. Asparagus is at its most delicious when eaten closest to home, so dishes featuring home-grown asparagus are now on all our menus, including the bar and lounge. The garden furniture is out and soon it will be time for afternoon teas on the lawn and evening drinks on the terrace at sunset. English summertime at it’s best.
