Harden's says

Chewton Glen, the luxury country house hotel tucked away in the New Forest, has opened a purpose-built cookery school. You can book here to eat, too - there's an informal dining space attached where you can watch the lessons and chefs at work. Expect more relaxed food than at the 'big house' - the menu lists wood-fired pizzas, burgers and superfood salads, as well as local seafood.

“I avoided the stuffier looking dining room, and went for the kitchen instead (a good choice)”, says one fan of the more relaxed option at this super-swish country house hotel: part of the cookery school. It doesn’t seem to be aiming for fireworks, rather “decent food, good value, helpful staff, and a really well-looked-after setting”.

“Surprisingly fab burgers” are a highlight at the year-old, casual dining destination of this famously luxurious country house hotel, which is part of a purpose-built cookery school run in association with James Martin. Other items on the menu branded with the name of the former ‘Saturday Kitchen’ chef include pizza, chargrills and salads.

A purpose-built cookery school opened at this famous country house hotel in spring 2017, and you can eat here, too, with wood-fired pizzas, burgers and superfood salads: early reports say it’s “brilliant – an excellent casual additional to Chewton Glen”, and one providing an affordable entrée into a luxury establishment not known for its bargain giveaways…

Have you eaten at The Kitchen at Chewton Glen?

Owner's description

The Kitchen at Chewton Glen is a purpose-built space that sets the stage for enjoying and learning about food and cooking. The design is open plan; bi-folding doors and glass panelling flood the rooms with light. Surrounding the building are raised beds and a greenhouse where herbs and vegetables are grown year-round to supply The Kitchen. The Kitchen is a feast for the senses. On any day you’ll find guests and visitors gathering for informal lunches or taking a cookery class, gardeners selecting fresh ingredients or chefs developing this season’s menu. 


The Kitchen is an informal dining experience with an open plan layout offering you the chance to watch the chefs at work. The à la carte menu features wood fired pizzas, gourmet burgers, superfood salads and more.


The menu has been carefully created to showcase niche local suppliers and home grown produce.
