Surround yourself with the beautiful scenery, whilst dining in our Social Bubble restaurant in the secluded grounds of Furnace House, overlooking the topiary garden and the tranquil lake, spanning up to 7 acres with rare water lilies and many species of fish, against the backdrop of the 50-acre forest, you may see some of the wild deer, and hear the toll of the bell from the monastery in the distance.
The oldest property in Furnace Wood is Furnace House which dates to the revival of the iron industry in the mid-1700s. An early record of the house is shown on a map dated 1795.

We wanted to say a big thank you for the great food at our wedding. Quite a few guests mentioned how good it was and how nice it was to have so much choice. Thank you also for helping us with the run up to the wedding. You really were like the wedding planner! Your advice was a huge help on many things.

Hi Steve, The evening was great. Thank you so much for providing us with both excellent food and service. Many of the guests commented on the delicious fare and extend their compliments to you. It was a pleasure to have you there keeping things under control in the kitchen & leaving it all so clean and tidy afterwards. I will definitely recommend you to my friends and would not hesitate to contact you next time I need to cater for an event. You were a star!!

We had the privilege of being invited to what turned out to be a wonderful evening of stunning cuisine. You should be proud of what you produce in the kitchen of the homeowners. Would highly recommend Steve and his team.
Steve from Stoves Dining made a Non wedding day very special for my daughter and her fiancé! They wanted a Greek bbq and we got so much more - home made flatbreads - gorgeously cooked meats and amazing salads - followed by wonderful deserts. Steve is a great chef and extremely professional and a really likeable guy. I would highly recommend him and his team.
