Make a reservation on either the Upper or Lower deck to avoid disappointment, tables will be allocated for 2 hours for reservations of 2 guests, 2 hours 30 minutes for reservations of 3-4 guests and 3 hours for reservations of 5-6 guests.

Our Upper Deck is fully weather proof with each table situated under permanent parasols with infrared heating provided. Please note that some tables of 6 on the Upper Deck are high tables with armchair barstools.

Our Lower Deck, situated closer to the vineyard does not have moderate rain cover and is more exposed to the elements. Please be aware that you may want to bring coats and blankets for cooler weather.

Bookings on the Upper Deck will not be cancelled due to adverse weather conditions and our late cancellation and no show fee will still apply

We reserve the right to cancel your booking at late notice on the Lower Deck due to adverse weather conditions but there will be no charge incurred.

It was our second visit to Hencote the service, atmosphere and weather were perfect for celebrating our 3rd anniversary however it is a little pricey so for us it’s an occasion restaurant. Constructive criticism for a venue of such quality and when you’re paying £109 for lunch it was surprising to receive HP brown sauce and Heinz mayonnaise in sachets! I think the presentation of sauces could be improved hugely as this feels very pub like.

We had a lovely time! The views were amazing and the lower deck and the whole ambiance was amazing. The waitresses were polite, professional and helpful and sing happy birthday to my son when they brought down his birthday cake! The pizza’s were lovely, I chose the salami pizza the only thing I would say that there could have been more salami! Apart from that it was amazing and we would love to come again!
