Our 2-tier dining room is centred around a spectacular spiral staircase which encloses the bread oven. The dining room and kitchen is open plan, so delegates can enjoying watching their lunch being prepared by our skilled kitchen staff. The Upper Dining Room offers superb views across the rolling Sheepdrove countryside.
The lower dining room doors open onto the tree-lined courtyard at the front of the building or the Physic Garden towards the back of the building, perfect for alfresco dining or refreshment. The licensed organic bar offers a selection of fruity red wines, crisp white wines, bottled ales, lagers and beers and a range of refreshing soft drinks. The vegetables, salads, herbs and fruits are brought up fresh from our organic garden and prepared in our kitchen for our delegates. Our menus reflect the changing seasons and we always use organic, natural, wholesome ingredients, avoiding pre-prepared goods.
We grind our wheat flour fresh everyday to make breads and cakes to serve to our delegates in the Dining Room. The flour mill is in the centre's shop, where honey, oil, chutneys and preserves, as well as a range of books and gifts, are available for browsing and purchase by conference centre delegates.
Delegates can enjoy unlimited still and sparkling water, drawn
from 300 feet below our fields in the depths of the Earth's oldest organic filter Chalk.
Our red wine is from Le Domaine des Savarines a small biodynamic vineyard in South West France owned by Peter and Juliet Kindersley’s daughter Rosie and her French husband and chef Eric Treuillé.
