Christmas & the Festive Season at The Farmhouse

There is something truly special about our 600 year old Farmhouse, it comes alive in the winter with our fireplaces decked, hearths blazing and decadent meals. We know how to throw a good party too, be that for large groups in The Barns at Redcoats or an intimate dinner in our cosy private dining rooms, The Oak Room, The Victorian Room and The Old Kitchen.


Festive Gatherings in The Farmhouse

Looking to celebrate with family & friends this festive season?

James Moody, our Head Chef, and his experienced kitchen team have crafted an innovative farm-to-fork menu that showcases the season's finest produce.

Begin your evening with pre-drinks in our historic bar at the heart of the Farmhouse. Enjoy the welcoming Orangery for your dinner, then retreat to the lounge for some night-cap cocktails or a glass of port from our extensive list.


Private Dining

For those seeking a more intimate setting, we offer three private dining rooms providing a memorable backdrop to your Festive celebrations: The Old Kitchen which accommodates 8-10 guests, The Oak Room suitable for 10-13 guests, and The Victorian Room which can host 14-16 guests.

All parties in our private dining rooms will indulge in the festive menu. If you're planning a smaller dinner, even just for two, you can still choose the festive menu. Please inform us and pre-order in advance.


Festive Menu

Our festive menu will launch on Friday 29th November.

We'll collect pre-orders prior to your arrival, so when you get to us, all you'll need to do is relax, sip your drinks, and we'll take care of the rest. 

Enjoy a 3-course lunch or dinner complete with crackers, coffee, and mince pies for just £60 per person. 

Menu details coming soon!
