You can rest assured that a visit to Kesgrave Hall promises charm and style in abundance. Inside this handsome four-star country boutique hotel is Milsoms Kesgrave Hall restaurant, which is a magnet for those looking to enjoy a lazy brunch, laid-back lunch, family feast, or post-work tipples.
Offering a calm environment in which to dine, you can expect to find a bright space, and a bar where original features seamlessly blend with modern touches. There’s an open kitchen, allowing diners to watch the talented chef’s working their magic. Nothing is rushed here; it’s a relaxed affair, thanks to the efficient and friendly staff, and no-bookings policy.
Attention to detail is paramount, as you’ll see if you order the glazed pork belly with pickled turnip, cucumber, Nigella seeds, and chilli and watercress salad, or perhaps the pecking duck spring roll, served with hoisin sauce to start. Mains are equally delicious and include pan-fried Scottish hake fillet served with chorizo and risotto, chargrilled steaks, Milsoms club sandwich, and curried baby monkfish tail, served with mussels, tomato and sorrel broth. Make sure you leave room for dessert. What could be better than finishing your meal with orange posset, orange jelly, poppy seeds, shortbread crumb and orange sorbet?
In keeping with tradition, afternoon tea is served and is the ideal treat for a special occasion. Come rain or shine, you can dine al fresco on the covered terrace and enjoy views of the sweeping lawns – children are encouraged to play as you sit back and relax.
Three spaces are available for private hire, and are perfect for birthday parties, celebrations and business meetings. If staying in one of the 23 en-suite rooms, gear up for an enchanting weekend at Kesgrave Hall.
