Award-winning Glasshouse Restaurant in Basingstoke

Home-grown and hearty

Taking its name from the original glasshouse designed in the mid 19th century by Edward Milner, a renowned landscape architect who also designed Oakley Hall’s gardens, the Glasshouse Restaurant is where you can enjoy an elegant and sophisticated, yet wonderfully laid back, fine dining experience. Our seated terrace offers beautiful views of the hotel grounds and gardens and is perfect for soaking up the sun as you indulge.

We follow a ‘field to fork’ philosophy and pride ourselves on using local produce sourced from within a 50-mile radius. Some produce even comes from our own Kitchen Garden, where we grow a fantastic variety of vegetables, herbs, and even our own fruit.

Our innovative menus and wholesome approach to cooking have earned us two AA Rosettes, and we were also finalists in The Food Awards in 2019.
