Orchardleigh is a romantic Somerset Estate 10 miles south of Bath, with a magnificent Victorian Stately Home, an Island Church, 18-hole Golf Course and plenty of accommodation.
At Orchardleigh we take great pride in our food. Our award winning Head Chef, Gareth Burgess has come from 3 Rosettes restaurants and demands the best quality ingredients. Gareth was placed second nationally in the food nutritional awards and was awarded the Gold by the Soil Assocation for producing a nutritional heathly and organic menu that solely used local suppliers and produce. Here at Orchardleigh we endeavour to produce everything possible on the Estate.
Beef comes from our herd of Aberdeen Angus and is hung for 28 days before being served as we believe this is the only way to enjoy top quality Aberdeen Angus Beef. Pork is from our herd of Saddleback Sows and Pietriene Boar. This cross gives a beautiful flavour and is much leaner, the bacon, sausages and ham are all absolutely delicious. Our lamb is from our flock of Shetland cross sheep. It is said that the further north the breed the better the flavour, and it is!!
Eggs and Vegetables
Eggs are from Black Rock Chickens beautiful tasting eggs with large, deep yellow yolks. We grow almost all the English vegetables. These include potatoes, parsnips, cabbages, cauliflower, runner beans, onions, carrots.They all taste completely different from those sold in the supermarkets!
Our bread comes from a local bakery and is baked and delivered fresh every morning.
Cheese and Preserves
Our cheese comes from a local merchant and is not served until it is mature, so important for cheeses like Stilton and Brie. Our preserves, jams, marmalades and chutneys are all home produced.
We have our own apple orchard which produces beautiful eating and cooking apples. Soon we will be producing raspberries, strawberries, gooseberries and blackberries.
Our fish comes mainly from Brixham and is fresh, our kippers are oak smoked for 7 days and come from the Isle of Man-taste the difference!! If you would like Kippers for breakfast these will need to be pre-ordered no additional cost.
