Locally sourced & freshly prepared seasonal food
Our menus reflect our cultural backgrounds of Herefordshire & The Caribbean. Stephen is of Jamaican descent and has loved to cook from a young age when he would help and learn from his mother. His colourful and imaginative use of spices and herbs in the kitchen will get your taste buds tingling. Lucy’s English farmhouse upbringing is reflected in her homemade cakes and pastries as well as delectable desserts which you can spoil yourself with during your stay.
Huntlands Farm produce & local suppliers
We aim to support local producers as much as we can as well as cook with the produce we grow in our own garden and the fruit grown in our orchards.
We are proud to announce that we now cook with local, cold pressed rapeseed oil from Warren Farm, Brockhampton and you can purchase bottles from our honesty table.
Therefore, your breakfast will be a combination of homemade or home produced food as well as locally sourced ingredients. Our hens lay eggs daily, our jams are homemade from our own fruit trees, vegetables come from the vegetable garden and where possible, we even cook our own beef, lamb and pork. If we can’t produce it ourselves, we ensure we use and support locally grown food as much as possible.
Take advantage of our Sunday-in-Bed Breakfast Tray; let us know the night before what you fancy for breakfast and what time you will wake to receive it and we will happily deliver your breakfast to you in your room.

If you have any special requests or you are celebrating a special occasion, please do let us know so we can help you arrange something of your choice to ensure your stay is memorable.
