Roth Bar and Grill, part of the Hauser & Wirth gallery, offers a simple menu created from locally sourced ingredients – all served in a traditional farmhouse and adjoining cowshed decorated with contemporary works.

Guests to the 18th-century, Grade II-listed farmhouse can tuck into meat from the adjoining Durslade Farm and to dishes made with other hyper-local ingredients.

Diners are surrounded by contemporary works hung in a personal salon style which add a touch of modernity to the rural setting, including Henry Moore’s fine drawing of a lobster and Jason Rhoades’ neon chandelier.

The interior, designed by Parisian architects Laplace, retains elements of the original farmhouse, with great timber supports, exposed brickwork and sturdy oaken furnishings adorned with rustic accessories.
