Natalia – Restaurant Manager


The Kitchen




Tansy is our eldest ‘herb’ and is clear where she wants to be in the future.  When asked if she wants to be a chef like Daddy she replied “No I want to be a customer.”  Clever girl!


Cicely is our budding Heston Blumenthal.  She loves foraging with Daddy and can tell you which wild mushrooms you can or can’t eat.  One to watch for the future!


The youngest but most demanding of the 3 daughters, she knows where the pastry section is and, more importantly, which chef to charm for chocolates.
