This site was once a large marsh, fed by the River Great Ouse, but in the 1950s gravel extraction created a series of small lakes and pools which survives today. The gravel was mainly used in road and industrial construction, but today the old gravel pits are home to an abundance of wildlife, flora and fauna; a magical place for all of us to enjoy.
Gravel pits often lie in river valleys, and naturally become home to vibrant flora & fauna. Whilst you won't find those on the menu you will find vibrant flavours, which are locally sourced and carefully put together by our head chef...
