Locally sourced ingredients
We grow our own vegetables, herbs and fruits at Walmestone Growers, near Canterbury. The nursery produces over 30 different crops and 20 different herbs each year and produces over 500 boxes of vegetables per week in the summer period for our restaurant and animals!
Bear Lodge Bar
Our cosy bar on the covered veranda is fully stocked with a range of a range of Kent ales, spirits and carefully selected wines from our local vineyards.
Oberon & Rina
Meet the neighbours
Perched at the highest point of the Reserve, Bear Lodge offers the best view of our spectacled bear pair, Oberon & Rina. Rina is half the size of Oberon, but what she lacks in size she certainly makes up with a big attitude and keeps Oberon in check! Oberon is very calm and gentle but does like to break things, although he does so in a very methodical way, testing every branch and barrel for a weakness.
