Hitchen’s Barn

A former Great Food Club Restaurant of the Year, Hitchen’s Barn stands out for its excellence. This restaurant, inspired by the British countryside, is recognised in the Good Food Guide as one of Britain’s 100 Best Local Restaurants. Its dedication to high-quality seasonal cooking, local sourcing and friendly service is consistent.

Neil and Louise Hitchen, the owners, infuse their passion for hospitality and local ingredients into Hitchen’s Barn. The restaurant has earned a Bib Gourmand from Michelin for four consecutive years, a testament to its high standards. The menu, crafted by head chef Neil, reflects his love for rural England. It features dishes like Braised Shoulder of local venison and braised rabbit leg, as well as fresh fish options including fillet of Cornish cod. The daily-changing menus guarantee a fresh, seasonal dining experience.

Local sourcing is a key aspect, with suppliers such as Launde Farm, The Melton Cheeseboard and Hambleton Bakery. Hitchen’s Barn, where the owners’ pride is evident, provides an exceptional dining experience for those valuing high-quality, locally sourced ingredients.
