It's about the food, it's about the service

  • Our extended family

    We are lucky to have a team who care just as much as we do, which shows in their first class service and attention to detail. Without them the Hothouse wouldn't be the success that it is.

    Locally sourced

    We love to source locally whether that's fresh meat from our local butchers, or Ale from the Surrey Hills Brewery at Denbies Vineyard. We know you'll love them as much as we do.

    The Hothouse

    Our little jewel, the Hothouse itself, painstakingly restored from ruin back to it's former glory. And there's much more to see and get involved with at the Medicine Garden.

We're a family that adore what we do
