Since opening the Kitchen, 19 years ago, we have consistently been awarded the highest possible hygiene ratings & have always operated with exceptionally high standards.

Jo and Anthony’s number one priority during the COVID-19 pandemic has been to do all they can to keep their customers & team safe. The Kitchen was the first hospitality business to close down locally but equally one of the first to open back up, with new outdoor eating areas, track & trace, masks available for everyone, providing a safe environment.

‘Although we are sad to be temporarily closing in Farnborough, we were mindful that when the weather changed, without the option of eating outside in our gardens and courtyard, we had to do something radical!

We are so excited by the Pop-Up opportunity at Primrose Hill Farm, as a purpose-built events space, there is heaps of room for 2m social distancing between each table. We will continue to be committed to adhering to government measures to restrict the spread of the virus, and as always, will adapt quickly, should other changes be made.’

“The idea was to create a place that felt like the heart of a home, The Kitchen. Somewhere guests can eat superb food, enjoy great service, and relax.”


Our menus change on a weekly, even daily, basis, reflecting the seasons & our passion for the finest market produce sourced from the local area.

Our dishes range from hearty & rustic British classics to those with a more global influence but always using British Produce – local wherever possible.

Whatever you choose, you can rest assured it will be cooked to order, just for you, with passion & flair.


We are so lucky with where we are… in the heart of a beautiful, & ancient, rural village… but still no more than 10 minutes from both junctions 11 & 12 of the M40.  & we are surrounded by the most wonderful walks & awesome hilly cycling routes.

It’s the perfect place for business & social gatherings alike; & with a large car park, we can accommodate coaches & car clubs by prior arrangement too.

When the weather’s kind, or simply when you feel like it, you can explore our glorious terraced garden & drink or eat on our heated & covered smoke shack: perfect for warm, sunny days & long, balmy evenings.

From Friday 9th October we are popping up at the fabulous and spacious Primrose Hill Farm, Arlescote.

We are temporarily closing Farnborough, as our cosy little pub doesn’t cut it for COVID.

So we are joining forces with our friends at Primrose Hill Farm, where it is light, airy, COVID safe and just a couple of miles down the road.
