Foxhills Golf Club

Provides the best backdrop for a round of golf in Surrey and probably the best wine selection for afterwards too.

Whether it's lazing away the summer days watching cricket with a pint from the clubhouse or taking a chilly winter walk to watch the deer, Bushy Park is always a winner!

A great day trip to see the palace where Henry VII once lived, the gardens and the maze.

Not just a garden centre. The renovated café is a lunch destination for locals in its own right.

The Pheasantry Café

A picturesque café and restaurant in the Woodland Gardens of Bushy Park. Great, fresh food, cakes, drinks and ice cream.
