The Wellhouse is the woodfired dining experience at Lainston House. Expect immersive eating and drinking where the skill of woodfired cooking and home grown produce come together with the very best of local field, farm, forest and fly - all overseen by talented Executive Chef Phil Yeomans.

Celebrating the former life of the listed building - also home to Season cookery school - The Wellhouse is set in historic, rustic-luxe surroundings complete with an idyllic walled kitchen garden, which will play host to private dinners and events. One of the UK's very few restaurants to have all dishes cooked by woodfire, The Wellhouse brings a year-round, unique food, drink and social experience to Hampshire, celebrating the bounties of cooking over fire.

The Wellhouse takes inspiration from the hotel's impressive kitchen garden as well as the exceptional produce found in the county including meat, fish, dairy, wines and spirits.

Member benefits also available at sister property The Avenue. See The Avenue for details.
