Drover's Hill at Stonor
Food and Drink

Dining at Drovers’ Hill


The Stonor Valley is full of delightful pubs and restaurants, but if you’d like to stay cosy in your drover’s hut, you can cook at home with your full kitchen and barbecue. Your hut will be stocked with fresh Laceys Family Farm organic milk and butter, free range Stonor Park eggs, apple juice from our 15th Century gardens and local bread. But let us organise so much more for you…

Local food, ready and waiting


Want to come home to delicious local food and drinks waiting in your fridge? Order award-winning Nettlebed Creamery cheeses, the finest English Farm Longhorn organic steaks and burgers, Hundred Hills Winery sparkling wine or our own Stonor preserves. Don’t miss the venison from our deer herd, which has been here since Norman times and provided venison to the Tudor Court.

Let us cook for you


Make your stay extra special and let us arrange for our chef Greg Martin to cook you a magical dinner under canvas in a secret location in the park. Greg has cooked all over the world and has a love of the finest North American (he hails from Upstate New York) European, modern British and South American food (subject to availability).

Authentic Italian pizza


When you don’t feel like cooking, amble down the hill and enjoy authentic Italian Neapolitan pizzas from the Gozney pizza oven at Tumblestone Hollow Adventure Playground. Our Italian pizza chef Salvatore Di Giacomo cooks his delicious pizzas with fresh ingredients from Italy and from our own vegetable garden. Savour them under our giant canvas tipi or take them back to your hut.

Barbecue


Each of our drover’s huts comes with a firepit and grill, so you can barbecue to your heart’s content and spend summer evenings sitting out under the stars and listening to our local owls. Pre-order the finest steaks and beefburgers from English Farm and venison from the Stonor deer herd.

Pubs and restaurants


With five pubs within an hour’s walk and many more a hop away by car, you’ll have plenty of choice for dining out. From cheese toasties at The Cheese Shed in Nettlebed to the finest dining at Raymond Blanc’s Manoir aux Quat Saison or Tom Kerridge’s Michelin-starred restaurants in nearby Marlow, there’s somewhere wonderful for every mood and occasion.

Afternoon tea in the Medieval Hall


Enjoy a mouth-watering afternoon tea in the magnificent surroundings of our Medieval Hall at Stonor House. Pre-book on Sundays from April to September and enjoy delicate finger sandwiches, scones, cakes and tartlets served on fine china, accompanied by a range of teas and coffee.
