The Garden Café

The Garden Café offers a spectacular vantage point over the kitchen gardens and orchards below, from which the vegetable-led menu is sourced. The terrace is just the spot for sundowners before dinner, and is a convivial space for a summer reception. The restaurant can host up to 150 people throughout the year, for formal or informal dinners and gatherings.

The Winter Garden

Inspired by Victorian plant hunters and their collections, the Winter Garden enshrines unfolding displays of exotic ferns, orchids, succulents and tropical fruit trees. It is also a verdant location for a botanically themed soirée. The Winter Garden can host up to 50 people for drinks and canapés, making it ideal for small informal gatherings and events.

Perfect Pitch

Enjoy the gardens from a secret spot or take a turn with friends and family after hours. Discover the perfect pitch to watch the sun set over the gardens, with a plate of something delicious. Summer salads plucked fresh from the veg plot and a speciality BBQ prepared over woodfire by our talented chefs. We can host a summer picnic for up to 40 people in our secret spot, or if you book after hours we can host up to 130 people in the garden.

The Farmyard

Just beyond the cyder orchards, half a mile from Hadspen as the crow flies, this former dairy farm is a place to spread out and lean back, cheek-to-rosy-cheek with grazing livestock and sheltering oaks. Original farm buildings, with a delightfully golden patina, are home to 17 rooms, a pool, bar, snug and all-day kitchen. Drinks are served at the Garner Bar, while bikes and buggies provide ample opportunity for pootling over to the gardens and spa at Hadspen. This hidden gem is the ultimate location for a celebration or country escape with friends and family.
