The main chefs, self-taught, focus on balancing bold flavours & culinary technique fortified with foraged, wild, & fermented produce. They source a lot of their produce from the walled garden itself and from nearby Chew Valley Community Farm. The result is imaginative and tasty food. Some unexpected flavours.
The setting is pretty informal and small - essentially guests sit in a converted conservatory at the top fo the Garden with wonderful views. Combining lunch with a wander through the walled garden, checking out the resident artists, makes for a wonderful outing.
Anyway we're not the only ones who love The Ethicurean: they're in the good food guide, Michelin Bib Guide and have one or been runners up in the Observer Best Ethical Restaurant on two occasions in the last three years. If your visiting Gorge View Cottage and like good food then do try them out. But you'll have to book as their popularity grows.
