Regular visitors to Botley Hill Farmhouse may well have spotted a print on the wall, just to the right of the bar, commemorating the Battle of Britain. Perhaps, if you are particularly eagle-eyed, you may also have noticed that the story accompanying it relates to an extraordinary incident that actually happened in the skies overhead.
In addition to locally sourced meat, eggs and cheese, we are delighted to welcome a range of artisan beers brewed by Titsey Brewing Co, who are based on site in a converted cellar.
Sourcing locally is important to us and it means a lot to our customers, too. The word ‘local’ is sometimes over-used yet, without the evidence to back it up, it has no meaning. For us, ‘local’ means understanding the provenance of what we serve - sourcing where possible from within a short distance of the farmhouse - but it’s also about quality.
