Chef, Olly RouseExciting news! Lainston House welcomes new award-winning chef

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Olly Rouse as Head Chef of Lainston House. 

Olly brings a wealth of experience; he was previously Head Chef at Coworth Park where he helped achieve a series of accolades including a Michelin star within its first year of opening and 3 AA rosettes. His other experience includes The Vineyard at Stockcross as Sous Chef and Pétrus under Gordon Ramsay Holdings as well as stages at Le Meurice and The Fat Duck.

He will be overseeing all areas of our food and beverage operation including the award-winning Avenue restaurant (3 AA rosettes).   

Olly commented: “Lainston House has everything I've been looking for within a property. I cannot wait to work with the team and grow our food philosophy in a really natural way. Our surroundings will be our inspiration to drive the food in the restaurant. We will embrace our kitchen garden and set out to utilise all it produces, with interesting combinations created to intrigue and give the feel-good factor. Diners can expect dishes which are complex in flavour and texture, with simple yet elegant presentation. We will be using many old and forgotten techniques and the very best of British ingredients to produce dishes that will take health and the environment into consideration.” 

We are looking forward to exciting times ahead!

Housekeeping tips at Lainston Country House Hotel in HampshireTip of the month from our Head Housekeeper!

Have you ever wondered what cleaning product to use to get the best results? Then try this formula...

Mix a solution of white vinegar and water, 50 parts vinegar and 50 parts water. Put it in a spray bottle: this will clean the entire bathroom including taps and shower door! This magic formula also works wonders on grimy mirrors and windows. Wipe over furniture by first spraying the solution on a duster, wipe and buff with a dry duster. The great news is that white vinegar is a natural anti bacterial agent so will not damage your skin or nails!
