Unwind in the garden with an aperitif before a delicious home-made 3 course lunch with wine. Indulge in a selection of dishes creatively prepared using local ingredients sourced from our neighbouring potager, herbs from our garden, and a top quality cheeseboard sourced from Loire valley based fromager Pascal Beillevaire who has shops in Paris and London.
