De Vere Tortworth Court
Immerse yourself in the luxury of a bygone era with a visit to De Vere Tortworth Court. This palatial Grade II* listed Victorian mansion is a restaurant, hotel and unforgettable events venue all in one. Work up an appetite with a walk through the beautiful landscaped gardens before enjoying dinner in one of two characterful restaurants.
The 1853 Restaurant & Bar is an immersive world of elaborately carved oak panelling, ornate archways and bookcases filled with gold-embossed leather-bound books. In the afternoon treat yourself to a sumptuous tea of delicate finger sandwiches, scones, eclairs, tarts and cakes. In the evening you can feast on delectable British classics like braised blade of beef, or meltingly succulent lamb rump in redcurrant jus. For a more informal dining experience, visit The Atrium Bistro Bar where you can sample burgers, curries and artisan stone-baked pizza. The delicious, unfussy menu is complemented by a truly remarkable setting – sunlight streams through a 60-foot glass ceiling illuminating unspoilt walls of exposed stone and brick. In the evening elegant lanterns illuminate the stunning historical features and the numerous indoor trees are festooned with fairy lights. For more formal events and weddings, guests can also hire The Orangery – a stunning Grade II listed conservatory resplendent with period detail.
