Nonnas in the Woods

Our pinnacle event this year.

A unique food experience: we breakdown the restaurant walls
taking our guests outside for a woodland dining & cooking experience,
under the watchful eye & tutelage of Chris &  Rose Bax.


If you combine the knowledge and passions of a chef with the practical skills of a boy scout, I guess you get quite close to Chris. His chefs skills enable him to teach simple but innovative ways with new ingredients.


Above all he is a man who loves to inspire people.
He has so much to pass on, and he does it in a way that seems personalised to each individual.


Rose has always loved plants, flowers and trees. She learnt to recognise a lot of species as a child, taught by her mum and granny.

The glamour of advertising and graphics pulled her away for a few years but the countryside has pulled back. The subject of plant identification is an enormous one and can be confusing.
It is a subject that Rose loves.

Managing their 18 acre site is Rose’s favourite pastime.
They are slowly reducing the number of conifers in the wood and replanting with native broadleaf species.
She likes nothing more than getting her chainsaw out and doing some thinning.


Their Passion for nature is unparallelled and it's such a pleasure to finally have them as our guides 

Trust me Not to be Missed!

This is a course inspired by simplicity of foraging, exploration,
food craft and the finest hospitality under the tree canopy.

Locally sourced ingredients never had such a truer meaning.
