We are passionate about food!

The Restaurant

Dining at The Outbuildings is a friendly and relaxed culinary experience, where residents and non-residents are all welcome. We are delighted that The Outbuildings is featured in the 2015 edition of the Michelin guide to Great Britain & Ireland!

Francois sources the best possible local ingredients from his artisan butcher in Valley and, as he puts it, “treats them with all due care and attention together with a generous pinch of heartfelt passion”.  His modern and light style of cooking, as his name would suggest, has its roots deep in the classical French repertoire! Charlie also works in the kitchen and is under the watchful eye of Francois. Charlie is off to London in a couple of weeks to do an internship with some very snazzy restaurants.

The Restaurant is open for lunch, afternoon tea and dinner throughout the week, not forgetting our regular Supper Clubs - a great value set menu and usually a very jolly affair!

March Dinner Menu

We offer a set menu each evening composed from these dishes.  If there is anything that you would like us to specially cook for you please give Francois a call. You can of course discuss the menu with Francois at the time of booking so as to ensure that all likes and dislikes are covered.  This also gives us the opportunity to make recommendations with regard to what is at its best in terms of quality and sesasonality.
