I have eaten in the restaurant and cafe Mr Grubb and would recommend both.Staff were great and food delicious. The cafe was fabulous when eating with children as they could run around on the lawn and we could then explore the rustic gardens.

We have had a heavenly truffle experience with the 6 course degustation dinner created by Marty Chichester for Truffle lovers. Each dish was a treat with exceptional presentation and a superb balance of ingredients. Creative and inspiring- delicious and a masterful combination of flavours. The OAKDENE matched wines were fabulous and Marty's Muscat was a great finishing touch with the... More

Christmas puds were just the right size but exquisite at the end. Loved all the silly bits, Bon Bons, Candles on one dessert. Oakdene wine was lovely. Service... More

Setting is really beautiful in the birch grove, or you can choose to sit inside. If you sit outside, although there are plenty of table and it is busy you don't feel you are part of the conversation of the table next to you!
