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 offer an a la carte menu during lunch service. In the evening, we offer a set five-course menu with snacks & confectionary, priced at £59 per head. We also offer a 3 course option from the set menu, which is priced at £45 per head.
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.

Lovely setting and an interesting menu
I enjoyed my visit to the Ethicurean so much, a secluded gem tucked away in an autumn fruiting walled garden. Clean fresh food - a delight! I will be returning...
Really enjoyed everything.
Truly superb in all aspects! Food, drink, service and setting were just sublime. Can’t wait to return, especially to try the cider 😀
Very limited lunch menu
Lovely staff, and ate the best Welsh rarebit ever!
1) Not allowing individuals in the group to choose between a 3 and 5 course set menu was disconcerting. 2) The mains took too long to arrive and given we were ‘forced’ to settle for a 3 course meal felt inadequate. End of the day, we came to eat & left hungry. 3) The seasoning in the dishes ( soup & risotto) was not to taste & seemed off. The meat felt hard and chewy. Just felt the main purpose of feeding a being lost within all the ‘Ethicurean’ branding. 4) The dessert was absolutely awesome & to die for. 5) At almost £70/ person with drinks & wine this did not feel 5 star.
This was our 4th visit to The Ethicurean, we have always thoroughly our meal. The flavour combinations are always spot on.
A delightful experience from the surroundings to the staff and of course the wonderful food. Thanks
Lovely lunch. Very welcoming and accommodating team, food was excellent and the pine and honey cocktail was 👌🏾. We’ll be back.
Excellent setting and lovely pescatarian feasting menu. Maybe then plaice course could have been reduced in size! Generous portion sizes, all flowed well.
Mind blowing food! Stunning all around 👌🏽
A wonderful experience - staff were knowledgable, friendly and the service was excellent all round. The food was superb; fun, interesting, exciting, delicious .. I'm a good cook myself so especially enjoy going somewhere where I don't even know what all the ingredients are and have to ask! it's very much part of the pleasure of coming here. It all looks every bit as good as it tastes and it's a joy to go around the garden afterwards and see where the food has just come from. Coming here is one of our best treats ever.
Very good meal but extremely expensive for a lunch
Beautiful food and a lovely setting. We really enjoyed walking around the gardens and spotting where our food came from. We even popped into the cider barn next door and bought some cider.
Lovely venue for a relaxed September lunch overlooking the garden.
Delicious vegetarian options. We were really impressed with the Aldwick Bacchus 2016 white wine. We arrived much later than planned, and we really appreciated your flexibility over our booking. Great to see so many bees in the garden.
Really lovely lunch. Beautiful setting. Great options for our dietary requirements and very accommodating. Thanks so much!
Enjoyed a delicious lunch with friends in such a peaceful setting. Homegrown produce inventively cooked enhances the home cooked dishes. Will definitely visit again!
We had an amazing experience beautiful surroundings, delicious food and excellent staff, I would highly recommend a visit. We brought my parents here as a birthday treat and they loved it.
Cenare in questo ristorante è stata una vera e propria esperienza. Giardino e orto meravigliosi, location panoramica e veranda fanno da sfondo ad una cucina creativa e adatta a tutti i gusti. L'agnello era squisito. Personale eccellente. Ci tornerò senz'altro!
We had a wonderful experience. Connecting up garden, food, drink beautifully was a treat.
Loved the rustic feel. Gardens are stunning. Food was great. It’s a bit ‘michelin’ but would have been good to hear more about the food as it was being served. Great wine list: very reasonably priced. Such a shame the restaurant was full of flies - really need to sort even if it is a garden venue. Staff lovely. Love the crockery.
Great food in a great atmosphere and landscape
