In Sussex, this beautiful Elizabethan Manor is the height of welcoming sophistication, so it’s fitting that the hotel’s Michelin-starred restaurant not only offers impeccable food, but also boasts views of the South Downs National Park.
A feast for the senses, Pennyhill Park is about luxury at every turn. So with that in mind, it should come as no surprise that the hotel has two restaurants that both boast awards. The Latymer is a fine dining experience overseen by Chef Michael Wignall, who has two Michelin Stars, and has a whopping four AA Rosettes. Meanwhile the Brasserie, under Ram Jalasutram is a less formal option serving all-English delicacies and enjoying two AA Rosettes of its own.
In an Elizabethan Manor, Hoar Cross Hall’s main restaurant is in the former ballroom and is every inch as glamorous as you might expect in such a location. It is decorated with William Morris wallpaper, Sienna marble mantelpieces, and a 19th century ‘wedding cake’ ceiling, under which to enjoy award winning dining. That said, this year TV Chef and inspirational health guru Sally Bee also opened her own restaurant Nutrilicious at the spa this year, a healthy but indulgent restaurant with a ‘guilt free’ menu that’s nutritionally balanced and wonderfully flavoursome.
It’s a wonderful thing to find home grown food in London itself, but that’s exactly what you will find at Hilton London Syon Park. They have their own herb and vegetable gardens from which ingredients are sourced for The Marco Pierre White restaurant. They also have a rather wonderfully named cafe called Brownies, where there are tea, cakes, a sundae bar and of course brownies in an environment that looks as though it was made of confectionary.
As the name might suggest, The Vineyard in Berkshire really knows its stuff when it comes to wine, and they do excellent food to go with it. The hotel is owned by the Michael family who have their own vineyard in California (a cellar holding 30,000 bottles and you can take tours). In the five star, triple AA Rosette awarded restaurant, Chef Robby Jenks serves formal evening meals and informal lunches. Meanwhile, pastry chef Anthony Millon is also something of a star attraction for his French inspiration.
A five star hotel and spa in every way, shape and form, the Vetvier restaurant at Chewton Glen is a bit of a star when it comes to high quality and sustainability. It has been dubbed a Three Star Sustainability Champion by the Sustainable Restaurant Association, ensuring the quality of ingredients, as well as holding three AA Rosettes, and a place in Tatler’s Restaurant Awards in 2012.
Combining the best of two worlds, the Andrew Fairlie restaurant at Gleneagles is all about French/Scottish fusion cooking under the watchful eye of the Michelin Star chef himself. Unsurprisingly it has a reputation for excellence. For lighter meals however, Deseo serves Mediterranean fare in the spa.
With two of the finest dining options in Manchester, The Midland comes recommended by Conde Nast Traveller and the Travel Reader Awards. The French by Simon Rogan has four AA Rosettes to its name, and was the winner of The Best Restaurant Outside of London at the Food and Travel Reader Awards. Alternatively, Mr Cooper’s House and Garden is listed in Conde Nast Traveller’s ‘The Gold Standard 2015’ and has two AA Rosettes for its seasonal menu.
With much of the produce from the estate’s walled garden, the restaurant at Swinton Park has three AA Rosettes in Samuel’s Restaurant which is overseen by chef, Simon Crannage. A Chef’s Table dining experience in the Cookery School, run by Chef Director Steve Bulmer, is also a unique experience worth getting your teeth into, or you can join him for a whole host of cookery courses.
To be clear, everything at The Gainsborough in Bath is unique and different from the spa experience to the design, and the food is no exception. Celebrated Michelin star and world-renowned chef Johann Lafer provides an inventive menu in his first restaurant self-titled venue outside his home country of Germany.
