Whether it’s a velvety butternut squash soup, a creamy risotto or a warm apple crumble, we all love tucking into hearty autumnal dishes on cosy evenings in front of a crackling log fire.
Casseroles and stews might be comfort food at its best, but the glut of gorgeous seasonal ingredients can also be crafted into dishes that surprise and delight – and we have created an autumn Gourmet Dining Break to showcase the flavours of the season at their very best.
Our head chef Matthew Tomkinson – who is one of only 34 Roux scholars in the world – has designed a stunning five-course surprise tasting menu for diners at the Terrace restaurant, which features delicacies like Wiltshire truffles and fresh seafood caught off the Cornish coast.
The exact format of the surprise tasting menu is – as the name suggests – top secret and ever-changing, creating an air of real suspense as each dish is presented.
To work up your appetite for such a magnificent feast, why not enjoy some time at the award-winning SenSpa at our sister hotel, Careys Manor, just six miles away?
The luxury Thai spa offers state-of-the-art fitness facilities, a world-class hydrotherapy suite, authentic Thai treatments, and warm, friendly service.
After dinner, our guests can spend time relaxing in the cosy Magnolia Lounge in front of a roaring fire before retiring to one of our luxurious bedrooms, rich with character and quintessentially English country charm.
