Steak and ale pie

We prepare our food using the very best locally sourced produce, meat and ingredients.

Be sure to look out for dishes made from produce grown right here on our estate - it’s not uncommon to see a gardener pushing a wheelbarrow, piled with salad grown in our traditional walled Cider House kitchen garden, to the Ox Yard Restaurant kitchen where our chefs serve it up. It doesn’t get more local than that.
