Lainston House Hotel that you see today dates from the late 17th century, however the foundations show evidence of an earlier mediaeval dwelling. The chapel in the grounds dates from the 12th or 13th century, again replacing an older wooden one, and was a valuable asset.

The name Lainston derives from Leofwines'tun, as tun means enclosure, Leofwine was a popular name, Leof meaning 'one who is dear' and wine meaning 'a friend'. Leynestone, meaning: 'farm of the great field' has evolved over the centuries with various spellings.

Congratulations to Executive Chef Andy McKenzie who has become Hampshire Food & Drink 'Chef of the Year' - for the 2nd year running.
