  • The Farm Cookery School & Netherstreet Beef

    Gretchen Winter’s lifelong dream of a cookery school at the farm where she grew up became a reality in 2016. The impressive result can be put down to her combined experience of running restaurants & events plus teaching children to cook in schools through her company Jack & Maddie. Located at Netherstreet Farm, home to her family since 1889, it’s a beautiful space in a rural setting. ‘I want to make cookery classes affordable – a place for people rather than chefs. It’s all about demystifying cooking and using ingredients that are readily available locally.’ The spacious cookery school has 8 stations fitted with domestic appliances, so it feels like a home from home. There’s a dedicated demo room and two conference rooms with a smaller breakout room. Perfect for off-site meetings, team building or large parties. ‘We have classes focusing on global flavours like Indian, Moroccan, Spanish, Italian or Korean and ‘Cook from Scratch’ is perfect for beginners. A popular event is ‘Cook & Dine’ where people get help cooking their meal & then stay and enjoy it without needing to wash up. Holiday clubs and Birthday Parties are also in demand.’ At £25 for a demo and starting from £35 for a class including your meal it’s a steal! Gretchen and her husband Matthew are also focusing on Galloway Beef Production and the meat is now available at www.netherstreetfarm.co.uk...»

  • The George and Dragon

    After a long career at Soho House, Chippy Day craved a better life in the country so bought the George and Dragon in Rowde in 2004. A 14th Century building, with many original features, it was the perfect place to create a relaxed pub with great service and understated touches. ‘Rowde is a lovely village - ever since we opened we’ve been welcomed and supported by the locals. Our leafy walled garden is a great venue for summer bbqs and bonfire nights and we often hold quiz nights or wine and cheese evenings.’ Seafood is their specialty with daily deliveries from Cornwall. Signature dishes include Cornish lobster with garlic butter and oysters, but there’s plenty on the a la carte menu - their cheese soufflé being particularly popular. The bar is well stocked with an ever changing selection of local craft beers, and their bespoke catering service and party room means they can hold parties or weddings at the pub or come to you. Their 3 bedrooms are especially welcoming – rustic luxury with higgledy piggledly floors, exposed oak beams and modern comforts, with breakfast served in the pub in front of the old fireplace. Dogs are welcome for a drink or to stay and Caen Hill Locks is in walking distance. Hot water bottles hang off a door for punters to take to keep warm outside, while B&B guests can choose from a selection of DVDs. This place is a gem. ...»
