The Chef & The Gardener

Going back to our natural roots

We strive to make Rufflets an oasis of health and happiness, where you leave feeling nourished and rested.

A partnership

The provenance of our food, how it's grown and where it comes from, is at the heart of good living, and good eating. Our culinary journey starts with the soil, it moves slowly though our seasons, and finally flourishes on The Chef's plate. 


The Chef and The Gardener work in harmony to ensure that our menus reflect the very best of our home-grown ingredients.

An immersive kitchen garden experience 

From the vegetables, to the fruit trees, organic eggs and even Rufflets' very own honey. We want our guests to be part of this story too, so we invite you to dine outside, in the sunshine, or under the stars. Meander through our kitchen gardens and pick a handful of mint leaves for your herbal tea, or pluck a sun-warm apple from the tree.
