At the heart of the hotel is the exciting new bar and brasserie. The team channels its talent and creativity into crafting dishes with a modern twist, along with traditional favourites. Starters to make your mouth water include chicken liver parfait with caramelised red onion, rocket and balsamic reduction, or why not try the slate of cured meats, available for one or to share? You might follow with mains of slow-roasted pork belly with garlic mashed potato, braised red cabbage, crispy pancetta and apple sauce, or duck confit with Dauphinoise potatoes, green beans and rosemary jus. If you’re struggling to decide, the enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff will be glad to offer recommendations. Other delicious options include the Chesterton beefburger and a choice of fillet and rib-eye steaks cooked perfectly to your liking. Round off your meal with a choice of classic puddings, such as homemade banana cake with caramelised banana and honeycomb ice cream or apple crumble with crème anglaise. If you’re visiting for afternoon tea or cream tea, you’re in for a delight – the range of speciality tea is sure to impress, as are the savouries, pastries and cakes.
Whether you’re visiting for a relaxed meal or a special occasion, nothing is too much trouble for the friendly team, and the restaurant is also available for exclusive hire.
