Food & Drink

Fantastic food is a passion at Iscoyd and we strive to give you and your guests a wonderful culinary experience that will be remembered for a long time to come.

We have an exiting menu for evening food too, including delicious wood fired Pizzas cooked in our beautifully restored vintage Citroen H Van.

We hope you love our menus but if you would like something that is not there or would like to change some of the elements please let us know - it is your day and it's got to be your way and it is very important to us that you get the feast that you want.

Our talented head chef and his passionate team have put a lot of thought and love into the menus, basing them on local seasonal ingredients and make the most of the array of beautiful fresh produce each season has to offer.

You will find different styles of eating, from Canapés and three courses, to sharing style dishes and splendid afternoon teas and barbecues. Whether you are looking for a beautiful three course dinner or something more relaxed, we will work with you to create something that is right for you.

Exquisite seasonal menus using the very best local ingredients
– you are in for a treat!

Let's Talk About Food

Meet the Chefs

We have a team of hugely talented chefs lead by Head Chef Jason Hodnett who joined us at Iscoyd in June 2021. A contestant on Professional MasterChef and representing the central region on The Great British Menu, Jason is a highly talented and passionate chef who has put together a first rate team in the kitchen and taken the food offering at Iscoyd to a new level. He is very approachable and happy to discuss and explore any menu ideas you may be considering.

We hold regular Sunday lunches in the Coach House which encapsulate all that is great about the weekend - delicious food with those you love. It's popular with our locals as well as past and future Iscoyd couples and their family and friends. There is only one sitting which means you can have a very leisurely lunch followed by a walk around the park and gardens. Please check out our events diary for dates and book your tickets for a truly wonderful Sunday lunch.

Sunday Lunch

Afternoon teas are usually held in the main house, in the Drawing room, little Drawing room and Library. They are led by Katie our hugely talented Pastry Chef and consist of a glorious selection of cakes, pastries, sandwiches and all manner of treats and delights, served with a selection of teas and coffees. We recommend this is accompanied by at least one glass of our delicious Iscoyd Park Champagne!

Afternoon Teas

We have a varied diary of supper clubs and restaurant nights. For our supper clubs we invite an interesting speaker to give a lecture. Our guests arrive for drinks and then we go to the library for the talk, after which we have supper in the Coach House. Where possible the chef uses the subject of the talk for the inspiration behind his menu. Please look at our diary of events to find out when our next super club is and to purchase tickets.

Supper Clubs

Our vintage Citroen H Van is equipped with a wood fired Pizza Oven and a great menu of possible flavour combinations. Though not a fast vehicle, she does move when required and is able to serve guests from the main house, Coach House or spots around the garden. The pizzas are very special and the smell of the smoke and pizzas cooking with the warmth of the flames always draws a crowd at our parties.

The Pizza Van

Champagne, wine, cocktails and all manor of delights. Discover our wine, cocktail and bar menus.


– EMILY ALICE, 2018 –

"The Food in particular was a huge highlight, the standard was that of a high end restaurant despite having over 90 to feed."

For all those who have been lucky enough to sample Philomena’s wood fired pizzas you’re in luck!
