New World? New Garden. At PKG, we have wholeheartedly embraced the government guidelines for the hospitality industry. Here you'll find a safe place to enjoy fantastic food and beautiful surroundings. Choose to sit in our Conservatory ('Standard Seating') or our fully heated, wood-panelled Garden Room ('Outdoor Seating'), both cosy and atmospheric spaces that offer something a little different to your average restaurant.

Head chef Darren Broom's passion lies in producing food with an unmistakable sense of terroir. For Darren, provenance is not just the backstory to his ingredients, it’s everywhere in the look, feel and taste of his food.

We are keen to champion our own produce first and foremost, providing guests with a unique and ever-changing insight into the seasons. We work closely with the garden team to manage and maintain the garden and to deliver a programme of regeneration and sustainability.

We had such a brilliant experience for our first visit to Pythouse Kitchen Garden. The food was exceptional and the staff were all really friendly, helpful and on point with their service.

Seriously, the food from the autumn menu was absolutely incredible. We were blown away!

And the venue was gorgeous. Couldn't ask for more!

Really look forward to visiting again!

Rustic chic ambience, so beautifully designed. Food is incredible - taste and presentation. Fresh ingredients from the garden, and the restaurant is situated in a stunning location. Amazing shop too with delicious bits to take home - we took things like marmalade gin, bonfire toffee amongst other things :)

Been here a few times, lovely place to go for either a quiet meal for 2 or with a few friends. Food is lovely every time. Walking around the garden is also an interesting experience. The girl that served us was very knowledgeable on the new menu and answered our questions promptly. Will definitely go back.

Lovely informal, countryside setting. The restaurant has a brilliant selection of dishes that is was difficult to choose from! Each was divine. Locally sourced fresh ingredients cooked over the open fire. Simple but effective. The staff were efficient and good humoured too. Very pleasant evening.

Absolutely delicious food. All so fresh and beautifully cooked and presented. We shared lots of plates between the four of us which was a great way to enjoy so many different dishes on the menu. The ember baked squash was a huge hit, as was the halloumi.
The staff were very attentive and friendly and it was all very 'Covid-safe'.
We will definitely come back and spend more time exploring the garden.

Interesting and tasty Autumn menu. Sharing nibbles to start, Pork belly cooked to perfection, with the most delicious side dishes (3 of us shared 3 different ones). It isn't often I can say that I could have chosen all the dishes on a menu. Portion size perfect as enough room to have the hazelnut tart.
Service 10 out of 10, friendly and warm atmosphere. Highly recommend.

Balance of menu could be better with some vegetables included with main courses. Hazelnut tart was a cake. Food well cooked and tasty and service very good. Spoke to restaurant manager who was sympathetic and noted comments.

Not our first time at The Pythouse and it will definitely not be our last. I soooo wanted to give you 5 stars especially as the food for us was superb. Portion, selection, quality and above all, taste, ticked the boxes.
A delightful young lady served us. However, asking the young waiter (pony tail) for a bottle of tap water which never came and a second glass of wine which did not come either, until we asked our young lady, was a tad frustrating.
Service is key, if staff say 'yes' to anything, they must have the ability to remember!
We felt for you when the Wifi did not work and were impressed that you were prepared to take a telephone number to call us the next day for payment - you and I were both surprised when my husband dipped into his pocket and pulled out cash - never seen before haha!
My review is intended to help The Pythouse; to anyone else reading - please go, it is excellent

The menu was rather limited by having 2 pork dishes. One of the pork dishes was a casserole with chickpeas. It was mainly chickpeas, with very little pork. There was one beef dish on the menu, and there was only one portion left of that. No alternative was offered.

The salads arrive plated together and it is difficult to separate the cauliflower rice dish from the spelt dish, except by taste, which is a bit of a problem if you don't enjoy horseradish.

Finally, it was a great surprise for one of our number to just be handed a tub of icecream for her dessert. No plate, no small spoon, no flourish. Desserts overall were not up to expectations

Overall, disappointing after previous visits.

The food was good - the garden experience was far too much and in fact just the fire pit was plenty. Hate to see waste so perhaps smaller portions if that is ordered as a side dish to the main course.

We enjoyed a delicious lunch at Pythouse last week, the flavours were amazing!
A selection of what is seasonal, freshly picked from the beautiful walled garden with a choice of additions from the open air grill. Very well set up for the times we find ourselves in at the moment, with dining indoors, or outside under a marquee. Very professional and friendly staff. The jams and chocolate we took home were also very lovely.

Really loved the food and approach. I would have liked the option to sit inside as the acoustics next to small children wasn’t enjoyable and dogs roaming about. The food and wine was delicious. The staff were really helpful.

It was our first restaurant meal out in 6 months, and what a great choice. We've been several times before and despite the hygiene precautions it was a really nice and relaxed evening out. Great food and location ambience, reasonable price, and always friendly and enthusiastic service. If you haven't been, I strongly recommend you go!

Tented restaurant outside and socially distanced. Vegetables were from the garden and tasty. Unique atmosphere in that this is all found in a huge traditional kitchen garden. Great.
