The food at PKG is wonderful. It's not the easiest place to get to, but is definitely worth the drive through rural Wiltshire.

If you like high quality locally-produced food with friendly service and in a characterful and relaxed location then this is the place for you. When we visited we basked in glorious autumn sunshine and the surrounding landscape was splendid. It was a very happy birthday lunch.

This is a great place to eat, the cooking, mostly done over an open fire is imaginative and extremely well executed. The staff are great and very proud of what they are doing - rightly so. One more thing deserves a mention which is the dining area which is very spacious, windows on three sides overlooking the garden. The only disappointment is that it is not nearer our place of abode!

This has to be one of the best dining experiences we have ever had, from the welcome through the ambience to the excellent food and attentive service. This is a wonderful restaurant that we shall be recommending to our friends.
William Sitwell gave 5 stars out of 5 in his Telegraph review, and he was spot on.
One tiny thing: perhaps next time we won’t choose to sit next to the lovely fire. It proved to be just a little too hot for us.

My wife and I had the most wonderful lunch here. The food is excellent and drinks superb and helped by sunlight streaming into the conservatory. Almost as memorable as Locanda Cipriani on Torcello!

We trusted the judgement of Giles Coren in his most complimentary review of PKG in the Times and were not disappointed. The place was welcoming, the staff engaging ang engaged in providing the best service. The vegetable orientated dishes were extremely tasty and the right size to satisfy without overloading the digestion. If I had one suggestion it would be that my perfectly tender lamb would have been even better if accompanied by a jus or even, to be old fashioned, some gravy.

The open fire leaves you with a smokey scent to your clothes but it is worth it.

We have been waiting a while to manage to go to the pythouse kitchen garden. We were not disappointed in any way. Very definitely one of the best meals we have had in ages. As well as the delicious the ambience and service was fantastic. I’m not encouraging them to put their prices up but it was a bit of a bargain and you leave stuffed. Just wonderful. If only our children were not all married I would be encouraging them to use it as a venue.

Another great lunch outing - excellent food and lovely surroundings. As ever very good service and again well worth the long drive from West Dorset. However it was rather cold so maybe some thought could be given to some heating during the colder months otherwise we will delay our next visit until the warmer weather!

Super friendly welcome and, as predicted,largely excellent food.
Some of the vegetables a little too over-charred but lamb was perfectly cooked, the simple starter with extras exquisite and the choc terrine dessert truly delicious.
In terms of value for money I doubt you will eat this well anywhere in southern England...

Totally fabulous food and a really lovely ambience. Our daughter’s gluten and dairy-free needs were well catered for. The service was relaxed but attentive. It was a family outing following a funeral the day before, and it was a special way to unwind together. Couldn’t have been better.

The food was very interesting but the plates were not warm enough. The meat was only lukewarm and went cold quickly, the vegetable temperature was variable. One of our party was missing one element and had to ask for it to be addressed. Our concerns were mentioned to the waiting staff who said the chef would be told. The starters and dessert were excellent as was the wine.
