The Lytton at Chalfont Dene
Rickmansworth Lane, Chalfont St Peter, SL9 0LX
Located in the village of Chalfont St Peter, known as the gateway to the Chiltern Hills, you’ll find The Lytton, an elegant restaurant serving fine British cuisine in sumptuous surrounds. Easily accessible from London and South Buckinghamshire, it’s the perfect place to retreat to and enjoy a true taste of luxury. Elegant interiors and a serene atmosphere make The Lytton a wonderful place in which to dine. Tasteful artwork adorns the wood-panelled walls, while French doors invite plenty of light into the dining room. It’s the food here, though, that truly makes your visit a memorable one. Chefs thoughtfully craft a menu that changes with the seasons to showcase the finest and freshest local produce. Traditional favourites sit alongside inventive creations so there’s sure to be something to take your fancy whatever mood you’re in. You might start with the likes of flavoursome ham hock and Gruyère croquette served with chive mayonnaise, picked onions and crackling or perhaps a beautifully tender confit duck leg served atop toast with Parmesan and an organic poached egg. The selection of classic mains could include offerings such as succulent lamb’s liver and bacon with baby spinach, onions and red wine jus, or a sumptuous butternut squash, pine nut and Stilton risotto. Other main-course options might feature dishes such as pork cheek Bourguignon accompanied by baby carrots, mushrooms and mashed potato, and delicate Cornish hake with roast onion purée and a garlic and lemon dressing. Throughout the year the kitchen creates special menus for occasions such as Burns Night and Valentine’s Day, providing a great excuse for a fabulous evening out. It’s also a great place to pop in for coffee and cake, a light lunch with friends or to go all out and spoil yourself with a lovely afternoon tea. If you’re looking for a unique gift for a loved one, treat them to a Lytton gift voucher so they can experience this first-class establishment for themselves, whether they choose to sample a top-notch evening meal or decadent gin and tonic afternoon tea. No matter what the occasion, the attentive staff, wonderful setting and exceptional food will ensure that your visit is memorable for all the right reasons.
