Precisely executed and exquisitely presented dishes are what guests at The Cliveden Dining Room can expect. Situated in the beautiful Cliveden House and overlooking stunning National Trust gardens, visitors are surrounded by grace and grandeur as they enjoy a dining experience to be remembered for all the right reasons.
The tremendous talent and irrepressible drive of the team at Cliveden is evident throughout the dining experience, from the harmonious atmosphere in the kitchen to the immaculate finishes to innovative dishes. This extends into the restaurant space itself, where princely decor and attentive service create a truly incomparable dining setting.
Steered by the availability of seasonal produce, the well-conceived à la carte and tasting menus are a gastronomic tour de force of outstanding English produce. Though both offerings change frequently, a sample à la carte might list starters of Portland crab and roasted cauliflower with cauliflower couscous and wild sea herbs, and twice-baked Lincolnshire Poacher soufflé. For the main event, diners might sample the likes of a fillet of skrei cod with fennel, saffron and shellfish; Jurassic Coast rose veal with sweetbread, carrot and black garlic; or a loin of locally stalked wild roe deer with salt-baked beetroot, blackberry and parsley root.
Completing an already-alluring picture, Cliveden House’s luxurious rooms, enticing afternoon tea offering, informal dining option of The Astor Grill, and elite private dining facilities offer up yet more compelling reasons to investigate this one-of-a-kind Berkshire venue. The setting, architecture and interiors all speak of wonderful extravagance and extraordinary sophistication. There’s an instant sense of history from the moment you sweep down the driveway and step through the entrance into The Great Hall, with over 350 years of the house’s past having been dedicated to the pursuit of pleasure, power and politics.
Whether you’re staying overnight for a special occasion – there’s no better way to celebrate in style – or visiting to explore the beautiful 376-acre National Trust estate, dining at The Cliveden Dining Room is an experience not to be missed.
