Daylesford Legbar Launch February 2019 Legbar Hen


We are delighted to announce the opening of The Legbar, our new extension to the organic Daylesford café, The Trough. In keeping with The Trough and Old Spot, the name is inspired by our farm, this time celebrating our much-loved rare breed Gloucestershire hens, the Daylesford Blue Legbars who lay beautiful pastel-blue eggs.

Open all day and into the evening, The Legbar provides a relaxed, light and airy space for drinks, nibbles and small-plates as well as artisan coffee and botanical cocktails.

Furnished with low tables and comfortable armchairs, The Legbar’s long wall of glass doors opens onto a beautiful courtyard where guests can enjoy alfresco drinks and dine outside in the spring and summer months.

Serving a seasonal menu that celebrates the farm surrounding us, dishes include hand-sliced charcuterie, artisan cheese plates, seasonal vegetable crudités from our organic Market Garden and delicious plant-based dips.  Into the evening guests can also enjoy dishes from The Trough’s specials board, which features seasonal produce picked in its prime each day.

Our beautiful handcrafted bar is fully stocked with a selection of artisan and Koji spirits, serving both alcoholic and non-alcoholic botanical cocktails as well as our ever-popular list of organic wines, cold pressed juices, kombucha and smoothies.

Built sustainably using fallen oak from the Daylesford estate and local Cotswolds stone, The Legbar has a fully sustainable and local footprint. The roof has been sown with grass seed to aid biodiversity by providing extra habitat for wildlife, and we have even installed two bee hives to help sustain our vital honeybees.

Open from 8am-11pm Monday to Saturday and from 10am-4pm on Sundays, The Legbar is the perfect space to soak up the best of Daylesford.

And now you can enjoy disco, house, cool bar tunes and summer vibes with DJ Henry Crudge and Guests every Friday and Saturday evenings, 8pm-11pm.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.


Our award-winning Blue Legbar eggs have rich, yellow yolks, are high in Omega 3 and delicious served scrambled or poached.  They achieved a 2 Star Gold at the Great Taste Awards 2011. Available in our Farmshops.
