The Balcony

From Friday 16th April 2021, The Balcony at Hencote will be opening, join us for alfresco all day dining and drinks service with our new outdoor menu serving a selection of light bites and larger plates designed for you to sit back and enjoy the views over the vineyard.

Make a reservation on either the Upper or Lower deck to avoid disappointment, tables will be allocated for 3 hours per reservation.

Our Upper Deck is fully weather proof with each table situated under permanent parasols with infrared heating provided.

Our Lower Deck, situated closer to the vineyard does not have moderate rain cover and is more exposed to the elements. Please be aware that you may want to bring coats and blankets for cooler weather.

Bookings on the Upper Deck will not be cancelled due to adverse weather conditions and our late cancellation and no show fee will still apply

We reserve the right to cancel your booking at late notice on the Lower Deck due to adverse weather conditions but there will be no charge incurred.

Please note that The Balcony at Hencote and The View at Hencote are separate restaurants therefore bookings are not interchangeable between the two on arrival and menu items cannot be swapped between the two.

We had a great day. Could not fault anything. Lovely wines, delicious food and brilliant hosts. We are lucky to have this facility on our doorstep and can't wait until the restaurant opens. Highly recommended.

From the moment I reached Hencote with its beautiful surroundings I began to relax. Hencote itself is pure luxury. The sumptuous bed, free standing bath and gorgeous fluffy towels were my personal favourites!

The care and attention showed by the fabulous team. Luxurious yet homely feel to the accommodation. Thank you so much for the amazing hospitality. I could stay here for a month/year! I don’t think that I have ever felt so relaxed!
