gastronomic tour

Beginning on the Friday evening, enjoy a Gin and Tonic tasting, hosted by the Isle of Wight Distillery, who use hand-picked samphire, with an infusion of carefully selected botanicals, to give their Mermaid’s Gin a local twist. A three-course gourmet dinner at our award-winning restaurant follows.

After breakfast on Saturday morning, local farmers from Living Larder will tell you about some of the diverse produce they grow at nearby Apse Heath, before you enjoy a chef’s masterclass. Then it’s off to the Isle of Wight Cheese Company, to learn all about the art of making cheese and on this experience you will also enjoy a pre-arranged tasting session of famed and local Isle of Wight Cheese.

From cheese to garlic bulbs, a visit to The Garlic Farm for lunch and a tour of their beautiful estate is next on your itinerary. The day wraps up with another three-course dining experience in our restaurant.
