Barnsdale Lodge Hotel
Expect a warm welcome at Barnsdale Lodge Hotel, whether the log fires are lit or not. This former farmhouse is tucked away in the desirable Rutland countryside and is the perfect destination for a relaxing meal, fun-filled party, lavish wedding, pampering weekend or family holiday.
Quite simply, this is a stylish hotel that delivers outstanding, beautifully presented food that focuses on flavour. The emphasis on seasonal produce, sourced locally where possible – even from the hotel’s own kitchen garden – makes it difficult to decide what to choose from the imaginative menu. To start, my partner and I delighted in the pan-fried scallops with chorizo and pea shoots, and warm Exton Estate partridge with an artichoke, pear and beetroot salad with shallot dressing. Our mains surpassed expectations – my chargrilled sirloin of beef, with chips, roast tomato and stuffed mushroom, was plump and succulent, and my partner couldn’t stop raving about the flavoursome marinated monkfish with vegetables and deep-fried noodles. You will find real ales at the bar, and the extensive wine list is divided into European and New World varieties.
Inevitably, you’ll be enticed to book a room in these fabulous lodgings. The hotel boasts 46 stunning guest bedrooms, all en-suite. In addition, there are private suites with self-catering options, and conference rooms capable of accommodating 330 people.
