A contemporary art gallery in beautiful gardens with a fully licensed pop-up bar and cafe.

New this week: BYOV Fridays – Bring Your Own Vinyl along to play every Friday evening till Christmas – from 6pm Fri 8 Dec.


Exhibition & Residency – until 28 Jan 2018



Tue – Thu 11am-5pm
Fri – Sat 11am – late
Sun 11am – 4pm

It’s getting wintry, so this week we’ve turned up the heating, mulled the wine, cooked mince pies and hot, nourishing soup (lentil, lemon and thyme, with chunky homemade bread), all so you can cosy up and enjoy Jake Attree’s wonderful paintings.

Cardamom & Dill

Cardamom and Dill’s menu this week is inspired by the rich culinary traditions of southern Italy featuring the following dishes:
– A piping hot pasta peperonata with slow cooked peppers, fresh parsley and a scattering of finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
– Salerno sweet red pepper frittata topped with rich and creamy fontina cheese
Pignasecca borlotti bean & pear salad with a creamy tarragon dressing
– A punchy roast potato puttanesca salad with cherry tomatoes, olives, capers and balsamic vinegar
– Paulo’s zingy cannelllini bean and fresh pesto dip with a hint of Amalfi lemon.
Thu – Sat  12.30 – 2.00pm, to eat in or take away.

Jake Attree Drawing Workshop – £60

Call Robert on 07766 656030 or email to book a workshop place.



We are currently stocking the beautiful catalogue of ‘Home From Home’, an exhibition of international ceramicists currently on show at Contemporary Applied Arts in London. The CAA invited Robert to write a catalogue essay for Home From Home, which appears alongside an essay by David Whiting and profiles of each of the twenty-five participating artists. Catalogues will hopefully be available to purchase in the gallery shortly. Catalogues are £10.

One thought on “School House Gallery”

  1. Such a relaxing place. A pot of Earl Grey, a piece of home-made cake, some interesting art works and Dave Brubeck in the background – I’ll definitely return!
