Who we are now
Children's play area
Applegarth has a children’s pet’s corner and play area with plenty of seating to eat out in this area. It currently houses a family of renegade guinea pigs and chickens. There is a tree house with slide and a grassed area to sit and chill with the little ones.In the field opposite and easily accessible are ponies and Ethiopian pygmy goats.
The restaurant itself can accommodate 60 people in the winter and 120 in the summer with the outside terraced area. Our head chef produces a range of exceptional foods for both the restaurant and deli counter. We also offer an afternoon tea to die for or big, proper sponge cakes and other pastries, all made in the kitchens. Our Sunday Roasts are exceptional as are our evenings. A strange concept to the uninitiated but our night time offering is better than anything you can find in the area. Rest assured, you will not be disappointed with your visit.
The power house of the Farm Shop is the deli counter and kitchen behind. We have a full time, classically trained cook producing a range of ready meals, puddings, pies and tarts. Coupled with the charcuterie and delicatessen area this four metre counter serves up some seriously good foods. The rest of the shop is shelved with a considerable selection of produce. Fruit and veg, sourced the old way from Covent Garden market is a strong part of the shop as are the homemade breads, baked fresh every morning. Oh, and the considerable number of small, artisan producers that deliver their delicious goods to our doors adorn the rest of the shop.
We have 3 Nordic cabins in the garden centre area at the front of the shop. We have beautiful pieces of original art produced by Alison Orchard (http://www.alisonorchard.com/paintings) and Min & Boo selling stunning home baked cakes, cupcakes & tray bakes (https://www.minandboocakesandbakes.co.uk/)
