Dining at the Damson Dene is a real pleasure with the setting as good as the dishes on offer. We are very proud of our glowing guest reviews.
Our menu changes daily and offers a wide choice. We use locally grown fresh, seasonal fruit, vegetables and herbs whenever possible. Much of it is supplied from owner Jonathan Denby’s Victorian kitchen garden at Yewbarrow House. As Jonathan explains:
"The garden is located in a sheltered spot and has all the essentials; its own micro-climate - warmth, a lot of rain, and good soil; a lot of attention is paid to the soil. We follow Prince Charles's dictum - double digging every year with well-rotted manure and we rotate our crops. We do not use any chemicals, we're super organic”.
The benefits of growing your own for the hotel kitchen are plain to see. When one guest said the summer pudding was the best he'd ever tasted, and that he'd tasted a few, Jonathan Denby could tell him that the fruit had come straight from Yewbarrow House garden.
We cater for specific diets and provide a special children's tea so please ask for details.
