Win: Exclusive Cookery Class at Chewton Glen

The new place to meet, eat, create and cook


Opening in March 2017, The Kitchen will provide an informal dining experience with an open plan layout offering you the chance to watch the chefs at work. The à la carte menu will feature wood fired pizzas, gourmet burgers, superfood salads and Mudeford lobster and fries. It will be open everyday for lunch and dinner from March 2017.

Relaxed dining in The Kitchen

This purpose-built space sets the stage for enjoying and learning about food and cooking. The design will be open plan; bi-folding doors and glass panelling will flood the rooms with light. Surrounding the building will be raised beds and a greenhouse where herbs and vegetables will be 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.

Cookery school at The Kitchen

Your day will start with coffee and home baked pastries before a sneak peek at what’s growing in the greenhouse. Stroll through the garden into the cookery school and settle in to the workstation that is exclusively yours for the day. Spend time seated around the chef tutor’s station, where you will learn new skills before creating your own masterpiece under the watchful eye of the chef. Day courses run Tuesday – Sunday from 9.30am – 4pm. Prices start from £185 and include refreshments, lunch, all equipment and ingredients. Class timetable coming soon.
