The four-star Hatherley Manor Hotel & Spa is a real spectacle residing in the rolling Gloucester countryside. This 17th-century manor house boasts a luxurious state-of-the-art spa, gorgeous bedrooms complete with 24-hour room service and Wi-Fi, and a relaxed lounge area housed within the manor’s original beams, with a bar that’s stocked with a fine selection of wine, ale and spirits.
While exploring all the splendour the Cotswolds has to offer, you must pay a visit to Hatherley Manor’s elegant Dewinton Restaurant. The decadent feel of the interior is mirrored in the restaurant menus. Starters such as potted chicken liver parfait with toasted brioche and red onion chutney, and butternut squash and sage arancini with sweet potato purée and butternut squash seeds are sure to whet your appetite. For your main course, the slow-roasted pork belly comes highly recommended, and is served with mashed potatoes, black pudding, carrots and kale. If you feel like being adventurous, why not try the confit duck leg served with honeyed sweet potato, red cabbage and orange sauce? The combination of different textures and flavours is an absolute delight.
You’ll also find a stunning selection of grilled options. Succulent grilled salmon and 8oz sirloin steaks come with delicious twice-cooked chips, grilled tomato, vegetables and chestnut mushrooms. You can also add extra sides and sauces to complement your dish of choice. Mango panna cotta with strawberry ice cream, and vanilla crème brûlée with homemade shortbread will round off any meal perfectly. There’s also a selection of British cheeses served with celery, grapes, chutney and biscuits for those of you who like to end your meal on a savoury note. With a spectacular Sunday lunch menu and locally renowned afternoon tea, as well private dining rooms suitable for eight to 30 guests, and larger functions suites for weddings, celebrations and corporate events, the staff at Hatherley Manor will ensure you are served a meal to remember no matter what the occasion.
