John and Dee Stenhouse, have been running restaurants and hotels together for over 40 years.

Born in Kolkata, India, he also infuses South, and South-East Asian dishes into the menu.
Dee, your hostess when you visit The Auberge, aims to make every guest feel welcome and well looked after. Her passion for presentation is shown in all of the beautiful soft furnishings in the restaurant and all of the bedrooms.
