Dear Exclusive Experience Member,

Our mouth-watering events here at Lainston House continue with a reminder of our Taste of Hampshire DInner later this month, the fun 'Pick Your Own Pimm's' event in May and just a little teaser on a new event for Lainston - the Big Band on the Lawns. But as ever, you need to be quick off the mark as interest is abound and places are limited.

Call us on 01962 776088 to book...

Discreetly sheltered in the grounds, the ancient, walled kitchen garden has recently been restored beyond it's former glory. Apart from supplying the hotel's award-winning kitchen with fresh herbs and vegetables, the Kitchen Garden is now a charming location for guests to enjoy contemplative, sweet smelling walks and early evening drinks parties!
