Welcome to The Woodspeen

A Michelin star restaurant and cookery school, set in a lovingly restored 19th century farmhouse, nestling in the West Berkshire countryside. We serve seasonal dishes, inspired by homegrown ingredients. With a Michelin star, award-winning wine list and a relaxed atmosphere.

We set out to create a restaurant we’d want to eat in ourselves. A place where what’s on your plate depends on what’s growing in the garden. Where the food and service are first class, but the feel is unfussy. Where you can while away an evening sipping cocktails, or drinking in the views.

Whether you’re a budding chef or an absolute beginner, we run courses to suit everyone in our cookery school – from butchery to breadmaking. They’re fun but hands-on, to give you a real sense of achievement. We also host demonstrations, wine tastings and events in our school kitchen throughout the year, as well as our Kitchen Table private dining experiences.


We crafted our very own ‘25 Yards’ Gin, using the botanicals from our garden. The vegetable and herb garden sits just 25 yards from our Michelin Star restaurant kitchen, giving us the perfect inspiration for our distinguished hand-crafted London Dry Gin.


Clearly we love our food, and we suspect you do too. So we’ve handpicked a few classic, easy-to-make recipes you can recreate at home, in your own kitchen. Feel free to share them (we’re not precious about them). And do keep coming back for more.


Our gift vouchers make thoughtful presents. Champagne and cocktails in our bar, a meal in our restaurant, or a course in our cookery school. Whoever you give them to can spend them however they like.
