Why just make the food local when you can make the surroundings local too…something the Highwayman delivers to spectacular effect? The beautifully landscaped terraced gardens offer a dining experience that has space to relax in style…yet feels like you’re in a secluded private setting with surprisingly comfortable seating and outdoor heating too. Stunning local and natural materials have been sensitively chosen, plants, herbs and fruiting trees all reflect a deliciously ‘foodie’ theme…we’ve even used species of flora that will help attract the region’s delightful butterflies and birds. This really is the perfect way to enjoy food…with roots!
