Nestled in the Forest of Dean and set within 30 hectares of award-winning vineyards is the Vineyard Brasserie. While gazing across the vine-clad valleys, feast on à la carte starters of pan-roasted hand-dived scallops, or smoked wood pigeon served with spiced pear. Mains include roast sea bream, and beautifully presented spring vegetable open lasagne with grilled sunblushed tomato and basil focaccia, and Parmesan pesto. If you’ve got room for dessert, poached pear and blueberry jelly served with dark chocolate meringue, and butterscotch crème brûlée are treats worth indulging in. Of course, complementing proceedings with a glass or bottle of wine is essential here and there are plenty of fruity, delicate varieties available. Weather permitting, drink or dine al fresco while taking in the beautiful views. Wine tasting events are a regular occurrence and you can even stay the night.
