About The Ethicurean
We are connected to nature.
The Ethicurean restaurant, bar and kitchen focus on ingredients from the fields, forests, orchards, lakes & seas that surround our walled garden.
We shun industrially produced ingredients and rely on age old methods of preservation & fermentation to produce live and health giving food and drink often from within metres of the walls.
Culturally rich, lead by the seasons & tied to nature.
"The Ethicurean restaurant is set in the enchanting Barley Wood Walled Garden, a perfectly restored Victorian kitchen garden, bursting with fertile life. But far from your usual garden cafe fare, gardener Mark Cox sends his produce to the restaurant in the delightfully scuffed former glasshouse to be made by the team into some of the most delicious, innovative, vegetable-focused cuisine in the land."
-Marina O’Loughlin’s 2nd favourite restaurant in the UK.

Fantastic Mother's Day lunch
Very good food and very pretty
What an amazing all round experience!
Beautiful setting even on a cold blustery day. The food was fantastic!
The most beautiful and delicious food in lovely surroundings with good but not intrusive service, Just need more special occasions!
Excellent restaurant. Fresh food, fresh atmosphere and excellent but understated service.
Superb food, unique surroundings
Wonderful lunch in a wonderful setting!
Delicious. Lovely array of tasting pleasure.
As a vegetarian, the Ethicurean ticks all the right boxes for me: vegetabes grown on the premises, flavours combined in the most unusual way and presented so beautifully: A feast for my senses and my belly. It is my favourite restaurant and I am introducing it to all my close friends.
Food, atmosphere and service were wonderful. Very knowledgeable and accommodating staff, working with us to make sure our meals were filled with the things we loved and they were happy to substitute the things we didn't. As a vegan I was overwhelmed with tastes and flavours and will definitely be going back.
Booking was a bit early but background music would've helped with the atmosphere until other tables arrived. One or two additional (looks like 3 is the norm) main course options would've been been better. We both ended up having the same so no opportunity to taste the alternatives! What was on offer was excellent though.
A wonderful meal in superb surroundings. A perfect lunch!
Far too expensive for lunch Food interesting but there is too many tastes on the plate. I would not recommend for lunch but would go for a coffee in the garden . The setting is lovely.
Beautiful meal within a lovely garden setting. The staff were very welcoming and they made the experience all the better. Beautiful food with creative flavours and presentation.
Delicious food. Will have to remember to visit in the summer to make the most of the gardens
Just amazing. A feast for your eyes and your stomach.
The food was fabulous in taste and presentation with great views from the restaurant. It was lovely to walk around the walled garden afterwards as well. Thank you to your staff who were all very welcoming and attentive. We will definitely return.
The setting is picturesque, the staff are excellent so friendly and the food is exceptional. I only wish we lived closer and could visit more often.
The food was sublime and the best we have eaten for a considerable time. The staff were attentive. A hidden gem.
Our first visit and we will come back. Best Pimms I've ever had! Toilets need to be cleared of cobwebs.
I can't suggest any improvements for our lunch at all. Everything was well prepared and cooked, and beautifully presented. My own choice (the vegetarian option on 26/07) comprised items with very strong flavours that worked perfectly with each other and looked spectacular. Service was attentive but unobtrusive.
a great place for us to celebrate our wedding anniversary, friendly staff who understood the menu and a great atmosphere
