Isle of Wight

From a region not only beautiful and colourful, the Isle of Wight also provides a rich and fertile agriculture. Just a stone’s throw from Thompson’s are some of the amazing producers who form the backbone of the menus which Robert and his team devise – from The Garlic Farm, Isle of Wight Cheese, The Tomato Stall and Will and Aimee Steward’s Living Larder to name but a few.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The Isle of Wight is a beautiful place for a chef. Rich in agriculture and deeply rooted in history going right back to the Norman conquest and Roman invasion. Wild herbs such as Rock Samphire, Sea Purselane and Wild Garlic grow in abundance around the coast. Areas of natural beauty will take your breath away. The views can be enjoyed even from the Isle of Wight ferries.

The unique climate in which to grow seasonal vegetables, herbs and fruits have become a rare gift for a cook.  Chef Robert Thompson explores the Island’s story through his menus and continues to pursue new discoveries on the Garden Isle in the South of England.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text el_class=”size=18px”]
