Dining at The Jack Russell

At The Jack Russell, our Head Chef, Andy Watts brings a wealth of experience into the kitchen to showcase the finest seasonal ingredients  on his menus. We’re incredibly fortunate that The Jack Russell sits at the heart of the beautiful Faccombe Estate and benefits from an abundance of Estate grown produce from game to figs and apples from the orchards.

Andy also supplements the Estate produce with beautiful meats from Walter Rose & Sons, a nearby fifth generation butcher and the brilliant Flying Fish, delivering the finest catch daily from Looe in Cornwall.

We compliment Andy’s menus with worldclass wines from Wanderlust who source the best sustainable wines from around the world, including some that arrive on our shores by wind powered boat.

Our Suppliers

It’s thanks to our trusted food partners that we can always offer the finest and freshest of British produce, and we design our menus to showcase the very best, season by season. Meet two of our favourites.

Walter Rose & Son

Established in Devizes, Wiltshire in 1847, family firm Walter Rose & Son is a multi-award-winning traditional butcher with exceptional provenance and sustainability credentials. All its ‘farm to fork’ beef comes from outstanding Aberdeen Angus and Hereford crosses farmed by Tim Johnson at Stokes Marsh Farm, just eight miles from the butcher’s shop. Choosing small heifers for their consistent quality and rich marbling of fat, the company treats each piece individually, hanging it and checking it daily until it reaches the perfect maturity. We’re proud to serve Walter Rose & Son’s beef cuts and sausages in many of our dishes.


Flying Fish Seafoods

Our seasonal fish and shellfish dishes burst with freshness and flavour, thanks to our long-running partnership with Flying Fish Seafoods. Based in St Columb, Cornwall, the firm expertly sources the best, boat-fresh, sustainable catches from Looe, Brixham, Newlyn and Plymouth every sunrise, supplements its local produce with exceptional speciality products from proven artisan suppliers from Scotland and Paris’ fabled Rungis market, and delivers overnight for unbeatable ship-to-plate savour. We’re in good company too. Flying Fish also supplies world-famous English restaurants including Le Manoir Aux Quat’Saisons and Heston Blumenthal’s The Fat Duck.
