At Forkingout we have enjoyed a close working relationship with the Larmer Tree for over twelve years. We are delighted to be their partner for all key events hosted in their gardens and are always thrilled to visit and take in the splendour of their grounds.
Set in the outstanding landscape of Cranborne Chase, the beautifully designed gardens of Larmer Tree were created by General Pitt Rivers in 1880. Their wonderful 11-acre gardens are set in the heart of Cranborne Chase, an area of outstanding natural beauty on the Wiltshire/ Dorset border well away from the hustle and bustle of busy modern life.
The Larmer Tree Gardens are an extraordinary example of Victorian extravagance and vision. The gardens hold a unique collection of ornate buildings, ranging from the spectacular Singing Theatre to the magical Roman Temple.
The majestic trees and intimate arbours create secrecy and surprise whilst the open lawns provide a perfect setting for reception drinks and a relaxing game of croquet. The magical garden welcomes guests to wander through hidden walkways, unwind on the lawns and to discover the unique charm of this beautiful setting.
Why our relationship with Larmer Tree is special (for you)
Having worked so long together, the team at Larmer Tree and Forkingout have developed a special relationship that transcends a working one; now almost like a friendship. We know and trust each other’s judgement, experience and capabilities, which ensures the smooth running of your day.
Between us and the Larmer Tree team we have created an experience of dining, partying, relaxing, eating, drinking and making merry that has helped turned the gardens into an award winning venue.
We are embedded within everything that the Larmer Tree does, their go to caterer for almost any event. And, such is the beauty of the gardens, the act of dining at the Larmer Tree goes beyond the plate in front of you and the table at which you sit. We have developed menus to match the music being played at events, supplied personalised drinks for special occasions and tastes, and provided the complete pre, during post bar and drinks service.
And, of course, we always encourage our personal tasting service before any decision is made as to menus to be prepared, to ensure that all expectations are met on the day.
