Dormy House is one of the Cotswolds most luxurious boutique hotels. Part of the stunning Farncombe Estate, 400-acres of land that spans from Broadway to the top of Fish Hill, it is a lovingly converted and quirky 17th Century farmhouse with a Scandinavian style chic spa. Comfort, fun and geniality is everywhere in this re-invented rustic country house hotel. 

The Back Garden is their seasonally inspired restaurant offering a menu of fantastic local food in a relaxed environment. Under the guidance of Martin Burge, the chefs have created a menu where every single dish showcases the best of the Cotswolds. Locality, sustainability and seasonality are at the heart of The Back Garden and that means slow foods, high-welfare rare-breed meats and responsibly cultivated grains and vegetables. No gimmicks, just inventively prepared flavour-first good food that is true to the land it comes from. 

The menu will also take inspiration from Dormy House's new kitchen garden which the restaurant opens onto. As it develops, the garden will become the beating heart of The Back Garden's operation, ensuring the chefs have access to the very best ingredients. There will be a ready supply of vegetables, fruit and herbs that cover all seasons.  

Membership benefits are also available in Foxhill Manor and Hook at The Fish Hotel at this property. See Foxhill Manor or Hook at The Fish Hotel for details.
