If you’re planning a visit to the picturesque, historic and majestic little town of Malvern in the Worcestershire countryside, you’ll want to stop by at Aldwyn’s, a brand new restaurant, bar and bistro serving a delicious array of lunch, dinner, and afternoon tea options that are sure to delight. Located in a grand Grade II-listed building that overlooks the Cotswolds at the centre of Audley Ellerslie, a luxurious retirement village with its own health club, library, and beautifully maintained properties and gardens, it’s the ideal setting for all those looking for a tranquil retreat from the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life.
Step inside the attractive Victorian mansion that houses Aldwyn’s Restaurant and you’ll be charmed by the sophisticated, stylish, and striking interior. With its wine-red walls, quirky and dynamic light fittings, cosy leather seating, and skylights that flood the large, open dining space with light, eating out here is a real treat. Quintessentially English, the approachable menu presents diners with an enticing selection of modern British dishes. This festive season, the restaurant is also welcoming a Christmas-themed menu filled with treats you’ll struggle to choose between.
Start your three-course festive feast with confit duck and roasted pistachio terrine, rhubarb chutney, sourdough and baby pea shoots before moving onto mains like the seasonal roasted turkey and glazed gammon with Cumberland stuffing, roasted potatoes, and bacon-wrapped chipolata or the warming and wintery daube of beef with apple-and-red-wine-braised red cabbage, potato puree and chasseur sauce. Also, make sure to leave plenty of room for dessert – after all, what would Christmas be without a little overindulgence!? With tempting options like the traditional Christmas pudding with cognac sauce and brandy ice cream and the Cointreau brioche pudding with cranberry puree and vanilla bean sauce, you’ll be in foodie heaven.
There’s also a festive afternoon tea selection that shouldn’t be missed, complete with turkey, salmon, chicken, and beef sandwiches and sweet treats like mince pies, Yule log, winterberry and yogurt shots, and spiced scones with clotted cream and strawberry preserve. With separate menus for Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Eve, and New Year’s Day, there’s so much to look forward to at Aldwyn’s Restaurant this December – and that’s without even mentioning the Christmas Fair on the 8th December where you’ll be able to purchase gifts, trinkets, cards and much more from local suppliers.
