In 1976 John and Stephanie Benson purchased a piece of land in Grayshott to start growing a range of soft fruit and vegetables. Selling via a barrow at the entrance and a van to Covent Garden Market, John steadily built up a pick your own business which thrived throughout the 1980s.

Today Applegarth employs about 32 people and has a thriving Restaurant and Farm Shop selling a whole raft of locally sourced, unique products. They are still true to our roots, however, trying to break the mould of faceless high street shopping by providing a personal and unique location.

The restaurant itself can accommodate 60 people in the winter and 120 in the summer with the outside terraced area. Applegarth head chef produces a range of exceptional foods for both the restaurant and deli counter. Also on offer are an afternoon tea to die for or big, proper sponge cakes and other pastries, all made in the kitchens. Applegarth Sunday Roasts are exceptional as are their evenings. A strange concept to the uninitiated but Applegarth night time offering is better than anything you can find in the area. Rest assured, you will not be disappointed with your visit.
