Longueville is very proud of the fact that much of the meat and game served in our Restaurant, is reared on the farm on-site. As well as cooking delicious food, making craft cider and distilling apple brandy, William oversees the gardens and farm ensuring ingredients such as free range woodland pork, spring lamb, woodcock, snipe, pheasant & duck come straight from the estate on to your plate, when in season.
Fresh River Salmon and Brown Trout, caught in The Blackwater River flowing through the estate, are proudly displayed on Silver Trays and served up later for all Guests to enjoy during the fishing season.
Seasonal vegetables, oriental greens, herbs and much of the summer and autumn fruit come from the three-acre walled kitchen garden and poly-tunnels on the east side of the house, carefully toiled by a dedicated team of gardeners. An army of ducks patrol the walled garden keeping the slugs at bay. Busy Longueville bees live in the orchards producing honey for the house and free range hens lay fresh eggs daily. Longueville House is and has been self-sufficient for a very long time - way before it became the trend.
There is also a 25-acre apple orchard from which an excellent craft apple cider is produced - simply named Longueville House Cider. In addition, an Apple Brandy is distilled from some of this cider and known as Longueville House Apple Brandy - made in the Calvados style. Both of these superior quality artisan beverage products are for sale on site, nationwide and beyond.
