OUR SPACES

Bar area

Step in to the jungle at The Herbalist – our bar area includes both relaxing armchairs and more social high-top seating overlooked by our quirky monkey lamps, leafy wallpaper and foliage!

Main restaurant

Our open plan dining space boasts floor to ceiling glass windows and a unique light box ceiling hand painted by local artist Tony Foster, honouring the great 17th and 18th century botanical pioneers Nicholas Culpeper and Joseph Banks.

Meadows

Bring the outside in whilst dining in The Meadows – nestled around a secret corner within the restaurant, our large seating area with a quirky ‘upside down’ fence & beautiful bespoke wall paintings by a local artist create the perfect space for a sharing experience.
