“Since I was a kid I was Massimo Bottura — I was escaping from my older brother under the table in the kitchen and from down there, where my grandmother was defending me, in the meantime she was rolling pasta, i was looking at the world from another point of view. It’s what we do in Osteria Francescana every day.”

A visit to Haddon Hall is like a pilgrimage for me. There is something unique here, and each moment is treasured and held, until the next visit. Thank you for looking after a very beautiful place.

"I watch cooking change the cook, just as it transforms the food." — BRYANT MCGILL
Haddon Hall is beautiful and I have been fortunate to have been able to visit it twice in the past 3 years. I am a direct decendant of Richard De Vernon. My ancestors migrated to America in 1682 and settled in Virginia.
Take care of the old homestead. I hope to return with my family to see it again before too long.
“Good painting is like good cooking - it can be tasted, but not explained.” — MALCOLM GLADWELL
Out of all the place I have visited in the world, I have found Haddon to be the most beautiful and delightful. The delicious scones in Haddon's restaurant are the best I have had anywhere. The grounds are so magical I can almost imagine the days when my ancestors rode across them, armor and swords clanking and horses everywhere, as they rode off to fight wherever needed. Haddon has managed to give a magnificent glimpse into the past while still retaining all its charm. Thank you for such a delight.
