IT’S BEEN AROUND

Woolworths TASTE - - New Restaurant -

If the curved walls of the Round­house could talk …The build­ing started out as a guard house and bat­tery in the 1780s. In 1814, it was re­fur­bished as a hunt­ing lodge (there was plenty of game in the sur­round­ing for­est back then) for Lord Charles Som­er­set.

Since then, the build­ing has been a pri­vate res­i­dence, a ho­tel (look out for the scrib­bles on the win­dows where women would write with their di­a­mond rings af­ter be­ing pro­posed to) and tea room. In 2008, Chef PJ Vadas stepped in as head chef at the then newly re­opened

The Round­house Restau­rant, and was later joined by Eric Bul­pitt as co-head chef, see­ing the two rake in sev­eral awards. Chef Dy­lan Laity was the last to head up the fine­din­ing es­tab­lish­ment.
