Opened in 2017, Mayflower Brasserie is one of two dining spaces at the five-star Boringdon Hall hotel. The restaurant’s name celebrates the area’s historical links to the Mayflower voyage from Plymouth to America in 1620. The interior boasts a modern feel yet maintains the history, charm and opulence of the 16th-century manor house in which it resides, creating a warm, welcoming and relaxed ambience.
The talented team of chefs have created a stunning brasserie-style menu that focuses on flavoursome seasonal cuisine, and each dish is made using fresh locally sourced ingredients. Expect the likes of Tuscan vegetable soup, and crispy fried Brie wedges with redcurrant jelly to start. Mains range from superbly grilled local steaks with a sauce of your choice, to Mayflower specialities such as Thai monkfish and prawn curry, and the Boringdon burger with bacon, smoked Cheddar, fries, and coleslaw. Round off your meal with skillet chocolate chip cookie, lemon meringue sorbet, or chocolate tart with vanilla ice cream. Vegetarian options are a refreshing seasonal affair and are sure to please even the most discerning of diners. There’s also a separate vegan menu, which features the likes of moreish crispy tofu with cranberry ketchup, and adzuki bean stew with wild rice.
You must stop by for Sunday lunch as you will be treated to a bountiful portion of perfectly cooked roast beef, Yorkshire puddings, crisp roast potatoes, seasonal vegetables and lashings of rich gravy.
The Mayflower Brasserie offers a more informal alternative to the hotel’s Àclèaf restaurant; it’s the ideal backdrop for a casual lunch date, sophisticated social gathering or a celebration with friends and family. The versatile space is also suitable for conferences and meetings.
